About Us

APGS was started in 2010 by Adam and Anne Fisher-Charles. Their aim was to combine their experience and knowledge in plumbing, training and business to create a company with high standards of workmanship, management and delivery, and to grow a resilient and reputable business in North Queensland as the ‘go-to’ people for the best, long-term green technology.

Adam and Anne take an active interest in researching energy efficient technologies, adding only the best to the APGS repertoire for the benefit of Australian commercial clients.

Adam and Anne share a passion for making the plumbing trade – and Australia – a better place.  They are proud to be associated with Mihaven Training School, which works hard to provide positive long-term employment outcomes for indigenous Australians.
