Advanced Specialized Equipment was founded in 1994. It was created by a need for high quality equipment for the cleaning and restoration industry, which had never been available in Australia. As interest grew from cleaning & restoration companies in Australia, further products were sourced and suppliers such as Steamway International, US products, Rollervac, Rotovac and Windsor made their equipment available.
The company expanded at such a rate that in October 2005 ASE moved from where they were at Silverwater to a new and much larger premises at Rydalmere. The larger warehouse and offices made it John and Grant’s dream of a complete training house a reality. The fully operational and interactive flood house was built, complete with water sprinklers for flooding, 8 cameras and closed circuit television in the classroom, the Interactive Training Institute (ITI) was born.
The first Applied Structural Drying course was conducted in May 2006 by Steve Swan from Dri-Eaz and the house is now used for almost every course that is conducted. This is the only full training facility in Australia. ASE expanded its market to include not only cleaning & restoration companies, but health and aged care and also janitorial and sanitization companies.
ASE now supplies to some of Australia’s biggest hospitals and cleaning companies. The introduction of a new cleaning system – Microfiber saw many changes in the industry. ASE now supplies cleaning systems, training and support to hundreds of businesses, enabling them to clean more effectively with less chemical and less effort.
As the industry accepts Microfiber as the way forward, ASE’s microfiber division continues to expand dramatically. Advanced Specialized Equipment has continued to grow and now has agents and dealers and hopes to have agents to service their customers all around Australia in the coming years.
Advanced Specialized Equipment’s belief is to give you, their customer the very best quality equipment, best quality service and best quality training in the industry, with supplying the only true 24hour/7day a week service for the industry. No requirements too small, and no needs too big.
