About Us

Atherton has been operating in Australia for over 125 years and is a 100% Australian owned company. Founded by Fred Atherton in 1889 in Melbourne, the Company has been operated through five generations by the Atherton family.

Initially set up as a plumbing firm, Atherton and Sons expanded in the early 1900s to include mechanical services such as heating, ventilation, hot water systems and "boiling water" sterilizers, we are now Australia's leading steam sterilizer manufacturer. Its determination to keep abreast with  changing technology has fueled a continuous study of new ideas in related fields both in Australia and abroad.
