Who We Are

Tribal Warrior Services

Tribal Warrior has come together with Climatech in a Joint Venture (JV). This JV – Tribal Warrior Services – is registered with Supply Nation as a First Nations owned and operated business.

The mechanical systems that Tribal Warrior Services provide include ventilation, smoke exhaust and essential services, heating and cooling, refrigeration and building management systems, and building energy analytics and diagnostics. We offer turnkey mechanical solutions that can be counted entirely towards your APP/APIC contract spend requirements.

Tribal Warrior Services is proud to be registered with Supply Nation and listed on their Indigenous Business Directory. Being listed with Supply Nation connects us with motivated buyers from some of Australia’s largest organisations across many industries.
