We’re not just a team – we’re a family.

Our Team

At Benmax, we look after our own. We’re not just a team – we’re a family. We look after each other. We push each other to do our best work, because we all share an obsession for quality craftsmanship.

As a family-owned business, our team is one of longevity and we value their ongoing contribution. For our clients, this means ongoing stability as we are able to provide a single, reliable point of contact throughout your projects.

Our family background doesn’t mean small ideas, it means our team is nurtured in professional development and growth, and a strong sense of pride, innovation and trust within the team is abound. This is seamlessly transferred into our client interactions.

No more navigating through layers of emails from different points of contact – we’ll ensure your needs, concerns, and expectations are fully understood and met, resulting in a more streamlined and satisfactory experience in the complex world of HVAC building projects.

That’s why our award-winning team is known for our quality workmanship and we back that with robust customer service values and a personalised approach to our work.

We directly employ over 140 dedicated individuals that bring specialised skills and technical excellence to all areas of our business, from site-based tradespeople and technicians to project managers and business administrators.

Our board and management team bring together a range of successful individuals with extensive experience, local insight and diverse perspectives to drive our business strategy, keep our team engaged and deliver exceptional client service.
