1970's and 1980's

ACE opened an earth moving school in Park Orchards, in November 1971. In the same year ACE started operations as ACE Contractors Pty Ltd. followed by the company being restructured in June 1989 to become ACE Contractors and Staff Pty Ltd, allowing staff ownership in the business.


Warren Higgs was appointed CEO in January 2008 followed by the company being renamed ACE Contractors Group Pty Ltd, and restructured into four subsidiary companies (ACE Civil Services, ACE Infrastructure, ACE Landscape Services and ACE Environmental Services). The company expanded its work geographical across Australia and reached 100 staff, however, sadly lost Graeme Savage, ACE’s Operations Manager in the Black Saturday bush fires in Victoria in 2009. ACE Water Services launched in 2011 and ACE Electrical Services in 2012.


Simon Cock was appointed Managing Director.
