Tim Bidstrup

Tim joined forces with Frank in 2015 and discovered they shared a passion for creating social change. The creation of opportunities for Aboriginal people that have an ambition for achieving a trade qualification was identified in the earliest days and identified as a tangible contribution that Wilco could make and the 20 by 2020 goal was born.

With a strong belief in the value of a trade qualification learnt from the opportunities given to him, Tim takes the obligation to train the next generation very seriously and takes great pride in supporting the growth and development of Wilco’s apprentices.

With over 25 years’ of experience in the electrical industry, including involvement with some of the biggest construction projects in the state, there’s not much that Tim hasn’t done in the electrical field. From Operations and Project Management through to the development of HSEQ systems for some of WA’s biggest contractors, Tim brings a sophisticated, no nonsense approach to the management of our project delivery team, ensuring health and safety is always the highest priority while overseeing the delivery of complex projects, ranging from high voltage and large scale shutdowns down to scheduled compliance testing.

Tim contributes a wealth of experience in the management and delivery of projects safely and on time, while maintaining the highest quality standards.

With responsibility for much of the day to day operations of the business, Tim has a focus on maintaining Wilco’s financial sustainability to enable the achievement of the company’s objectives- to be agents of change by creating apprenticeship opportunities and strengthening the perception of Aboriginal businesses in the marketplace. After so long in the industry Tim is proud to be part of a team that is not only capable of receiving the highest awards from the electrical industry’s peak body, but also provide much needed opportunities in our Aboriginal communities.
