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 20 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 100 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 purpose-built, highly versatile drain cleaning, inspection and rehabilitation units are designed for cleaning and repairing 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 nearly 200 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.

A New Era in Pipe Management

Pipe Management Australia brings together the powerful synergy of three entities working as one team, one company, with one vision.

Founded in 2002 by Luke Moore who is widely considered as one of the most experienced and knowledgeable industry leaders in Australia, IC Pipes started with a single camera van in the Western suburbs of Sydney, NSW. IC Pipes has delivered CCTV services across Asia and Australia including two floods in Brisbane within three years. Innovation has remained a core value for IC Pipes, including The RACER sonar and CCTV technology for drains. As a result, IC Pipes has continued to grow and pioneer new technologies to make the industry safer, more affordable and efficient.

Luke Moore and Justin Johansen partnered together to buy a vacuum truck in 2010 and Pipe Management Australia was born. The newly formed company grew significantly with high profile projects including the Christchurch Earthquake and Brisbane Flood recovery efforts. The team now has over eight years’ experience on delivering stormwater maintenance for Australia’s largest council, Brisbane City Council and over 15 other local government areas on the East Coast.

Headworks Australia

Headworks Australia was formed in 2020 as a mechanism for a nationally recognised water utility to partner with private industry.
In 2020, the three companies joined together to form the all-new Pipe Management Australia to provide an ever-growing suite of stormwater, sewer and civil services across Australia. Luke Moore, Justin Johansen and a representative of Headworks Australia, make up the board for PMA.
