About Us

Get to know the skilled individuals in our Thermalistic team, dedicated to delivering excellence in every aspect of heat imaging technology.

Being in the safety industry since 2012, founders Margaret and Peter Ivin established Thermalistic in response to enquiries from clients for thermal imaging and periodic electrical inspection services. It was apparent this demand was driven by insurance companies wanting to reduce risk, new legislation, and clients’ desire to reduce exposure to litigation and fines from safety breaches.

Meet The Team

Margaret Ivin

Managing Director

When Margaret was a wee schoolgirl in the North of England, it became apparent her forte was maths, so she went into accounting. Her first job was as an auditor for a chartered accounting firm.

She moved to New Zealand with two young children and worked in accounts roles for medium-sized companies and corporates.

Then in 1991 Margaret and husband Peter did something very exciting and started their own IT company. Margaret's role was to sell their services and later, as the business grew, she took responsibility for the overall management of the company and a few key clients.

She discovered she really enjoyed dealing with people, both clients and staff. Margaret believes it's important that customers get the best possible service. They deserve it - and it's essential if you want your business to grow.

Next, a fresh challenge arose in the form of a mobile phone franchise which they built up and then sold in 2011.

Comply Guy was their next venture, founded in 2012 to provide electrical appliance testing (test & tag). The company grew to encompass a very diverse range of electrical services, including electrical wiring and installation, power, lighting and mains switchboard installation, data cabling, thermal imaging, repairs and maintenance, and much more.

Margaret still manages the team at Comply Guy and has now brought those skills to Thermalistic, ensuring her clients from both companies get the very best service and care. It's the perfect role for her and perfectly utilises her experience from the past.

Away from Thermalistic she's often out walking to keep fit. She loves to travel and has so far been through Egypt, USA, China, Finland, Dubai and parts of Europe. There's still plenty more to see - when Covid permits!

Peter Ivin

Electrical Technician (EW131195)

Even as a young boy Peter had a flair for numbers and was drawn to electrical and mechanical devices. That strong interest later led him to study informational science in computing at Victoria University of Wellington.

His first job was as a computer programmer, then as an analyst programmer with Databank. Pete then worked for Texas Instruments until he was offered the opportunity to manage Computers for People's northern operation. And so, he moved from Wellington to Auckland.

During the hard times of the early 90's Pete & Margaret started an IT company. Pete's role was to support, diagnose, install and maintain his clients' computer systems. He loved the people contact, and the technical aspects suited him perfectly.

It wasn't until many years later that Pete & Margaret sold their by then much larger IT business and got involved in mobile phones, an area that also suited Pete's skill base well.

In between those two businesses they managed to squeeze in some travel - one of Pete's passions (along with photography, scuba diving and skiing), taking off to Europe for a short stint.

After selling the mobile phone business late 2011 they set about looking for a business they could grow and develop into a nationwide company. That became Comply Guy. Pete got to travel around New Zealand on a regular basis to help support and train local technicians.

With Peter acquiring electrical and infrared thermographer qualifications, plus fire and safety certificates, they decided to expand into thermal imaging and periodic electrical inspections.

And here they are!

Pete is truly in his element at Thermalistic. His boyhood fascination with all things electrical and his love of photography has just not waned!
