Who are AIS Greenworks

AIS Greenworks are a leading Australian owned and operated solutions provider for the protected cropping industry servicing Australia and abroad, providing design, manufacturing, installation and maintenance services to the market.

Commercial greenhouses have become a leading producer of fruit, vegetables, and flowers throughout Australia. Having been involved in this market since the 1990’s, we are proud of our contribution to the commercial hydroponics industry which is now one of the fastest growing food production sectors in Australia.

AIS Greenworks enables growers with the tools to control their environment; increasing yields and quality, while lowering inputs such as water, energy, and pesticides. Between our offices in Griffith, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Launceston and Adelaide and as an industry leader, AIS Greenworks are involved in a multitude of projects across Australia ranging in both size and complexity. Our team are approachable and hard working to ensure the outcome is optimal for the grower time and time again.

By and large, we are an engineering projects company parented by ICI Industries Pty Ltd, that will design, construct, supply and install the mechanical, hydraulic, and greenhouse systems required for competitive greenhouse operation.
