Benmax mourns the passing of Andrew Kolber Snr


Andrew Kolber Snr


Earlier this week the Benmax family lost one of its own, Mr Andrew Kolber Snr. A founding partner and director, Andrew made an enormous contribution to the mechanical services industry over his 45+ year career and he will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

A passionate and bold leader, Andrew’s ongoing commitment to delivering quality and to doing things right was integral in driving the development of the business and in shaping the Benmax team into what it is today.

Throughout his career Andrew worked across countless projects in the ACT, NSW and more recently New Zealand, earning a reputation for his strong technical knowledge, exceptional problem-solving skills and straight-talking attitude. He was well respected, highly regarded and considered a voice of experience within the industry.

For the Benmax team, he will be remembered for his unwavering support of those around him. His encouragement for each of us to do our best, to keep learning and to never cut corners are lessons that will continue to guide us into the future. We are proud and thankful for having had the opportunity to work with Andrew and will miss him dearly.

Our love and thoughts are with Andrew’s family.

For those that knew Andrew and would like to celebrate his life a service will be held by the family as follows:

Tuesday, 25 February 2020

Albert Hall, Canberra

100 Commonwealth Avenue, Yarralumla ACT

Commencing 12pm.

A private cremation will follow.

In lieu of flowers donations to Rural Aid to support farmers would be greatly appreciated.
