Acumman was founded by Steve Beckett of Project Air Conditioning Pty Ltd in the early 21st century to provide him with the resources to build businesses that were not only financially successful but allowed him, the business owner to achieve other life goals. Steve is currently developing another air conditioning business model to complement his two companies and also supports an independent company with the business process technology he has developed. As well as his air conditioning business interests Steve has a direct interest in business process system development for allied and other industries.
