Our History

We are South Australia’s major Plumbing and Pipeline Contracting business and one of Australia’s largest. Founded over 30 years ago our goal was to provide better service than any other plumbing & pipeline business in Australia. We succeeded by offering superior customer service and high reliability; by building and maintaining long-term relationships with customers that exceeded expectations of service, integrity and value.

 

After a period of ownership by TYCO International and the Norfolk Group from 2001 Chris Smith purchased the business back in 2010. Our Group employs over 150 staff in our divisions and we host the greatest number of plumbing trainees and apprentices in South Australia. Our people are our greatest point of difference. We might be a big company but we retain a close team approach to business.
