Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) October 3, 2009
Sydney-based company, Bean Media Group reward AE Smith for a century of hard work with an exclusive editorial feature in their latest edition of Australia's Best.
From its humble beginnings in 1898 as a one-man plumbing business in Richmond, founder Albert Edward Smith set in motion an industry-leading company that would become one of Australia's most successful family-owned businesses.
One hundred and eleven years later, the company is regarded as an industry leader in mechanical services and a major player in shaping Australia's and New Zealand's building industries.
Working with Australian and international partners, AE Smith collaborates on multimillion dollar projects, new developments and landmark buildings to deliver HVAC (heating, ventilation, air-conditioning), mechanical services, building technologies and sustainable energy solutions. Recent projects include the award-winning Darwin Convention Centre; Boggo Road Urban Village Ecosciences Precinct in Brisbane; the tallest residential building in the world, Melbourne's 92-storey Eureka Tower; as well as sporting icon the MCG. It's these large-scale projects played out on a world stage - combined with a host of highly technical projects such as hospitals, the Australian Synchrotron, national archives, pharmaceutical and manufacturing companies - that have set AE Smith apart from competitors.
The growth of AE Smith into a formidable mechanical services company with 10 offices around the country, 700-plus employees, and an intrinsic involvement in Australia's built environment has been driven by a combination of family values, collaboration and an innovative vision for the future.
