Yes, It's ACE

Has a history in the service industry dating back to 1970, started Ace Tree Management to service the power utilities; the core activity involved tree clearing around the power utilities assets, and now extends to providing professional tree services to councils, shires, road authorities and the general public.

In 1996 Ace Tower Hire P/L was formed and trades as Ace Energy Services was formed by Mr Vincent Calvi after the privatisation of the State Electrical Commission (SEC) to further service the power utilities in public lighting maintenance, this has grown into providing similar services for council, shires, developers and sporting and leisure organisations.

In 2005 Streetworx was formed to manufacture, supply and liaise directly with councils, power utilities and developers with lighting requirements for streets, sporting grounds and public parks.

Yes It's ACE is committed to improvement, expansion and serving the customer’s needs. This is demonstrated in Ace Tower Hire P/L’s recent purchased of a 200ft (60m) Elevated Work Platform (EWP) - the tallest in Victoria and will be utilised for councils, shires, road authorities, developers, bridging works and sporting and leisure organisations.

Further demonstration of our commitment to improvement and expansion includes our investment in our environmental policy. We are currently designing, developing and marketing a range of T5 lights. These are in the process of being trialled by various power companies and councils in Victoria.

We are committed to providing a service to ensure the safe, efficient and reliable supply of electricity to streetlights. We are totally aware of the importance of Street Lighting to the Community and power companies. We understand that people become insecure and feel unsafe when a light goes out. We also are aware of the performance measures (KPI’s) that SP Ausnet and Powercor have with regard to repair of street lighting.

We are committed to ensuring performance levels are improved and costs reduced. We know where to look for faults, and we have people skilled in handling all aspects of public lighting. Our Company is also innovative in that we also have the capacity to create new items should the present standard designs not cater for some situations.

With our present Contracts for Public Lighting Maintenance our business has dramatically improved the performance of the public lighting system although the network continues to age in particular the lighting on Main Roads where no planned maintenance has been carried out apart from spot changing. This has increased the number of lighting failures our business has had to attend. We provide total commitment to our clients.
