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.

Products of the Imagination

National Polystyrene Systems makes things out of expanded polystyrene. What it makes is up to you, because the only limits are on the individual customer’s imagination than on what the company can manufacture or mould.

Family Fortunes

Smart Waste Solutions

As Scott Geer, Contracts and Communications Manager at New South Wales based Solo Resource Recovery explains, today waste management is a recognised and respectable science and a management discipline attracting many highly qualified and capable people. However, it does have something of an image problem. “It’s not the job for everyone and it’s one of the things we like to quiz people about when they apply for a job with us,” he shares. “When we interview them we ask how they think they will get on, working for a waste company.”

The Recyclist

Worth Recycling’s Manager, George Cooper, says the company is also adept at dealing with solid wastes, collecting, recycling and re-using according to the materials involved.

Mission Probable

This is very much a family business, founded by Sam and Silvana Samawi. “We have had experience in cleaning for a very long time,” says Sam. “Silvana has experience of more than 38 years; I have been in the business for 22 to 23 years; Agostino [Russo] has more than 30 years of cleaning – we all started as cleaners before we became business owners.” The company’s first success was winning a contract worth $495 per month after Silvana did a ring-round of businesses in the Perth metro area. “In the next couple of years we worked hard and managed to win a small job here, a slightly bigger one there, and after one and a half years we got to around $700,000 per year.”

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?
