Paul moved from New Zealand in 1982 to Ladner. After leaving his home town briefly, he returned with his wife Karen. Together with their three daughters they are actively involved and loving the community of Ladner where their girls are actively becoming karate masters.
Paul has been in the Smart Home business for over 25 years and is a licensed electrician and self-taught mechanic. Since 2005, Karen and Paul have owned and ran Ultimate Custom Installs. In early 2019 they took over ownership at Vacuum Works and felt the blending of the two companies was the way to go. So Vacuum Works Plus was born with the “plus” being a clever addition representing the smart home installation aspect of their business.
Karen’s profession is an early childcare educator for over 20 years, 10 of those years in Ladner. When she’s not in school, you will see Karen running the store with Paul.
