About Guild & Spence

Our History

Guild and Spence Technologies specialises in technology to the healthcare and commercial sectors. The company has its roots in Guild and Spence Electrical which has been an institution in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty since 1979. Guild Electrical was formed in 1979 and 9 years later Ray (Guild) teamed up with Winston (Spence) to form Guild & Spence Electrical. As a result of the success within the business it was decided to form a separate technology division that specialised in niche technology to the healthcare sectors and to dedicate an ever growing sophisticated technical resource to our portfolio of major healthcare accounts.

Initially the business focused on nurse call applications and as a result secured a significant premier partnership with Austco Communications that allowed the business to grow significantly into the Hospital and Aged Care markets.

Due to our success within this client base there was an obvious and immediate need to increase our range of products and service that we offered to our existing and potential clients as all our valued clients wanted a single trusted vendor. Not only did our valued customers want systems installed, they increasingly wanted highly professional services to compliment the product offered as in most cases that technology was providing emergency services to “their customers.”

Guild & Spence today

Today the Guild and Spence business units employ over 90 people with Guild and Spence Technologies having over 40 full time employees The diverse nature of our business, the flexibility and the need to service our major clients has enabled us to provide support services and technology to the Hamilton. Tauranga, Mt Maunganui, Auckland, Wellington and Hawkes Bay regions.
