Company History
AEV has evolved from a small amusement ride manufacturing business in 1983 to a company that manufactures high quality specialised equipment for industry and businesses. The business grew rapidly due to the success of the amusement ride manufacture, and then turned to commercial electric vehicles and adapted some of the amusement technology to its electric vehicles – hence the present name of Australian Electric Vehicles.
From this point forward, the company quickly became involved in some big projects, for example it supplied 5 trains to World Expo 88 for people moving and on-site litter removal.
An association with Warner Bros Movie World was then established and the company went on to build many rides and street parade vehicles for both the WBMW Gold Coast QLD and WBMW Düsseldorf Germany venues. Soon after this, AEV started manufacturing Dark Rides and motion theatres for several venues in China.
In the mid 1990s the company became involved in the manufacture of the HILITE portable lighting towers, which have since been used extensively throughout Australia and in Indonesia. The HILITE range is now recognized as one of the largest manufacturers of portable light towers in Australia. A more recent development is the HILITE Variable Message Board, which is proving highly successful and a leader in its field. The message boards and light towers were both used in significant numbers at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
The company has conducted many successful export ventures into countries such as the UK, Germany, New Zealand, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore. With high profile customers such as Coates Hire in Australia and Indonesia, Atlas Copco Hire, Theiss Contractors, Premier Hire, Warner Bros Movieworld in Australia and Germany, Muchpower China, Tony Quirk Amusements [Darling Harbour and Stadium Australia], G & H Walkom [Botanical Gardens, Sydney], Toboggan Hill Park [Nelson Bay, NSW], Fantasy Glades [Port Macquarie, NSW], Driveworld [Pacific Fair, Qld], Sydney Olympic Park Authority [Homebush Bay, NSW] and many more are a statement to the company’s success.
AEV is presently developing some exciting new products to add to its impressive list of achievements. A commitment in areas of innovative design, engineering excellence and affordability will continue successfully as it has done in the past
