We're Johnny Cool

Where we Came From

john and kylieJohnny Cool Darwin is the brain child of John and Kylie Hayes. Born out of sheer frustration from working in the Darwin Electrical Servicing Industry and seeing the gaps in good old fashioned service and reliability, Johnny Cool Darwin became a reality in 2009. A fiercely proud family owned and operated business, Johnny Cool Darwin was initially John Hayes's dream, which quickly sprouted wings and soon 'roped' in wife Kylie, best friend Norm, then in quick successive order, son's Peter, Mason and Matthew.

Originally based out of a home office in Nightcliff, Johnny Cool quickly established itself as a reputable Service Agent for Domestic and small Commercial and Industrial Electrical works. This quickly mushroomed when John identified further potential business and added Air Conditioning Installation and Servicing to the list of services on offer. Early in 2013, John and Kylie added another string to their bow with the acquisition of Darwin Solarflo, now Johnny Cool Solar. The spur for this was a genuine interest in eco-energy and a desire to see Locals given the option to go with a Local Supplier and Installer who could offer long term after sales service.

Where we're heading


From humble beginnings, Johnny Cool Darwin has grown from 3 people to more than 26 full time staff and apprentices. However, John and Kylie are quick to point out that they have no desire to be the biggest in Darwin – just that they merely wish to be the "best in service" – the best service, with the best service people, and the best after sales service.

John is still very much a 'hands on Sparky' and likely if you call Johnny Cool Darwin for a quote or service enquiry it's generally John you will speak to. Kylie still heads up the Financial division and Office Management, and knows all of the customers virtually by name or address, but she's also spreading her wings, managing the CEC design side of Solar energy for Johnny Cool Darwin. This hands on approach is the way they like it, and with an enthusiastic team behind them who all share a passion for top quality service, a no 'bull' approach and a love of fishing, Johnny Cool Darwin is sure to continue to grow. 


As Darwin and the Northern Territory morphs into the new 'Western Australia Resource Sector' of Australia, Johnny Cool Darwin, it's Directors, Managers and it's staff are keen to tackle the challenges that lie ahead, building on experience, resources and partnerships to continue the mission of 'best in service' well into the future.
