APM Group's strong financial management allows the company to operate without an overdraft facility, to manage its substantial cash reserves and sustain its daily operations.
All APM Group projects are supported by bank guarantees from National Australia Bank - APM Group's banker for over 20 years.
Deliberately partnering with blue chip clients who are financially stable, the executive level of management is intimately involved in all projects, ensuring an efficient decision-making process throughout the construction period.
APM Group of companies was founded in 1989 and utilising our over 30 years experience in the Victorian construction industry, we specialise in the delivery of commercial buildings and infrastructure across a wide variety of project disciplines. From our inception, we have grown to a turnover ranging between 60 - 90M per annum.
We have successfully completed over 750 separate construction projects for corporate and institutional clients throughout Victoria, and maintain pre-qualification on the Victorian Construction Supplier Register through yearly financial checks.
As a private company, APM’s shareholders are the Directors, who are directly responsible in the negotiation and daily management of projects. This enables us to drive our core values of our business to develop collaborative relationships, retain clients through service and ultimately deliver value.
APM's strategy for the past few years is 'better not bigger', supported by existing Bank Guarantees and Insurance Bond facilities. We are justifiably proud of the fact that we have never operated with borrowings; our cash reserves adequately sustain not only our daily operations but also support these project security facilities.
APM undertakes a mix of Design & Construct (D&C) or build only contracts. These projects are procured either through tender or through negotiation with clients (ratio of approximately 50:50). With the evolution of the market, we have also undertaken a range of project development roles under Early Contractor Involvement (ECI), partnering with clients and consultant teams to manage successful project outcomes where construction input is required in the design and planning phase of a project.
