Systemaire turns 30
October 23, 2017

30 years ago, in 1987, Bob Hawke was Prime Minister, the first mobile phone call in Australia was made and long-running music program Countdown broadcast its final episode. It was also the year that Perth-based Systemaire commenced operations in October.

Founded by Tony Fego and partners Terry Gallagher and Norm Steketee, the emerging business focused on fans, filters and air conditioning products. Its growing client base of HVAC contractors serviced the Western Australian commercial, manufacturing, industrial, marine and mining markets.

Systemaire became Fantech’s Western Australian agent one year later in 1988, and now 30 years on the company is still going strong a decade after its acquisition by Fantech parent company, Elta Group.

Today, Systemaire employs 13 staff – a number having been with the company for over 15 years. The company has witnessed significant changes both to the business and the HVAC industry over that time. Changes to the organisation include the transition from paper-based systems to a digital platform that provides complete business visibility, and company growth that necessitated a move to larger premises in the Perth industrial suburb of Malaga.

Along the journey, Systemaire has remained fully committed to quality customer service and delivering the best performing and most reliable product range. Their service-first attitude sees the company regarded as Western Australia’s leading ventilation and air quality experts.

Systemaire’s position in the market is best evidenced by its involvement in most of the State’s large infrastructure projects. “We’ve been involved in just about every major project in WA,” says State Manager, Pierre Mitchell.

These include the Perth Arena completed in 2012, and the state’s largest infrastructure project – the $2 billion Fiona Stanley Hospital completed in 2014. More recently, Systemaire has supplied equipment for the new 60,000-seat, $1.6 billion Perth Stadium, set to open in early 2018 on the banks of the Swan River.
