Sustainable Heating Solutions

“With the way that power and energy prices are continually climbing, energy efficiency – which 20 years ago was probably a minor issue in the purchase of equipment – is now the major decision factor in purchasing equipment. If you can have a piece of equipment that is 10 per cent more efficient than an alternative product, that means big, big savings. It is a very important decision.”


Sustainable Solutions, Competitively Priced

Being Australian owned and operated is an important point of pride for the company that has experienced considerable ongoing growth over the years. For more than fifty years, Weathertex has provided employment for more than one hundred local residents of the community in which it produces its products, implementing values based upon the ideals of teamwork, engagement, caring, community and quality.

Connecting Communities

In 2009, OptiComm was selected by the National Broadband Network (NBN) to roll out the initial stages of the broadband network in Tasmania – and delivered under budget.

This is a fast growing company and has gone from nothing, seven years ago, to an annual turnover of approximately $20 million today. We spoke with OptiComm’s Chief Regulatory Officer, Phil Smith.

Piping Hot

Global Pipe’s title pretty much tells the whole story. From its base in Victoria this company can supply a pipeline for just about any application you are ever likely to need. Global is essentially a sales and service organisation rather than a manufacturer, offering the ranges of two of the world’s top pipe makers in fibre reinforced plastic and another range of HDPE pipe.

Family Fortunes

Making Sense of Management

Management is the art, or science, of getting things done through people. Sounds fairly straightforward – except for the fact that people are not robots waiting to do our bidding. People have their own minds, motivations, and goals. So how do managers keep operations – and the people behind them – running as planned?
