About Us

Andrew Brown & Co Pty Ltd (ABCO) was established in 1948 and has grown to be one of the largest privately owned water and wastewater treatment specialists in Australia. ABCO is a family owned and managed company that retains a hands-on approach while maintaining its traditional values and business ethics.

ABCO was founded by Andrew Brown in York, Western Australia as a plumbing and hardware store. Over time it evolved into a services company supplying rudimentary water and wastewater treatment systems to the mining and resources sector. In 1998 ABCO was re-incorporated with new capabilities, clients, regions of supply and scope of projects, maintaining its firm roots in the mining and resources industry.

With over 60 years of experience, the ABCO Group has a wide and diverse range of clients, both in Australia and abroad, including: Ghana, Senegal, Tanzania, Burma, Singapore, East Timor, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Nauru and New Caledonia.

Looking to the future

Looking to the future, ABCO aims to expand its international EPC and EPCM projects portfolio as well as developing an international operation and maintenance (O&M) portfolio. Furthermore, ABCO aims to develop DBOOT projects to span the lifetime of client projects. ABCO is looking to forge strategic Australian and international partnerships and create a high-value projects and products portfolio.
