History 1993 - 2016

The Clemcorp manufacturing business has been operating continuously since 1993 in Perth, Western Australia. Our name bears tribute to the founder of the company, Adrian Clements, who started the company originally by taking over the ventilation division of Gemco Rail.

A few months prior to his passing in 2005, the business was sold to its current two owners and has remained wholly Western Australian owned by them since. Since the early 1990’s Clemcorp has grown to be a globally diversified ventilation equipment manufacturer and technology supplier to the mining and civil industrial complex.
