PMA: Utilities maintenance leaders

Pipe Management Australia is a leading utilities management service provider operating on the east coast of Australia that was formed with a simple vision: to consistently provide the most effective solution for clients. For over 10 years we have been helping cities, councils and private organisations to identify, solve and maintain the flow of stormwater and sewer drain networks.

At the helm of PMA is over 50 years of combined experience in navigating and anticipating the problems faced in the service and maintenance of utilities. Our Directors, Luke Moore and Justin Johansen, each bring to PMA over 20 years of specialised experience in the sewer and stormwater and industrial
services and drain maintenance industries. The PMA management group draw on this lengthy industry experience to lead the highly skilled and hard-working PMA team.

Our fleet of over 30 purpose-built, highly versatile drain cleaning units are designed for cleaning and clearing all types of pipes, culverts and GPT devices. We provide a broad range of services and utilise innovation and modern equipment to deliver time-critical results to exacting standards.

Our forward-thinking, solutions-focused approach to solving problems has seen PMA grow from a small team in Sydney to over 60 highly skilled experts across the east coast of Australia. Engaging PMA for your next project goes beyond simply choosing a supplier; by choosing PMA you are choosing to get proactive to address and eliminate site-based issues before they arise.

From the centre of our oldest cities to Australia’s largest local council, PMA works safely behind, below and above the scenes to keep our communities flowing freely. From carefully uncovering hidden utilities to reliably managing major amenities, PMA is always working to keep you one step ahead – whatever is required.
