The Entire journey began on the 27th of March 1985 from the humble beginnings of Peter Coleman’s laundry in his St Kilda residence. The company was originally known as Entire Fire Protection and the team consisted of the two owners Peter Coleman, Alan Morris and their one apprentice, Boyd Morris. Months later, Lou Maglio joined the ranks to build up their onsite presence and brought his valued experience. In November of 1986, Mark Franklin joined the team and Entire Mechanical Services was established. By 1987 the projects started flowing in and Entire grew to 20 employees. This persistent growth necessitated the company’s first move and that was into an old butcher shop located on St Kilda Street.

In March of 1988, the company outgrew the premises with over 50 employees and moved into an old service station on William St, Balaclava. Entire continued to grow from strength to strength and in 1991 another move was required to house their 100 employees that landed them on at Montague Street, South Melbourne. In July of 1992, OD Engineering was created and was later renamed Entire Engineering in February of 1997. This was the specialist pipe fabrication arm of the company that was originally based on Mephan Street, Footscray. Again, due to unforeseen demand, they moved in 2005 to Oban Court, Laverton. Finally in 2007, the decision was made to relocate Entire Engineering to their current purpose-built factory in Sunshine West.

As the company continued to flourish and the employee base grew, a new premises was required and in 2000 the current facilities at Thistlethwaite Street was chosen. As it was originally an old garment manufacturing facility, with a lot of hard work and dedication from the team, it was transformed into the impressive establishment that houses Entire’s head office and warehouse today. In January of 2002, two more companies were established and added to the group. Entire Air Conditioning, the service and maintenance arm of the HVAC group and Entire Fire Services, who provide end-to-end solutions for all essential services regarding maintenance for Fire Protection.

Entire Group has earned the reputation of being a reliable and dynamic organisation that takes pride in all its services. Entire has seen around 300 employees on their payrolls at any given time and continues to expand year by year.
