BHP. Amazon. Rio Tinto. Sodexo. Compass Group. Department of Defence. Organisations across every sector, throughout Australia and beyond, rely on us for the advice and materials handling and storage products, systems and site-wide solutions they need to thrive. 


One-on-one advice.

Tell us about your workplace challenges. We’ll share our expertise and help you make the right choices. For your workers. For WHS. For efficiency. That’s human-centred engineering.

7,000+ products.

We’re constantly scouring the globe for the best products and solutions.
If the right off-the-shelf product exists, we either stock it or we’ll find it for you. If not, we’ll build it.

Infinite options.

From custom storage to powered handling equipment, we can modify existing products or custom-build new ones from scratch. The result? The perfect solution.

Go standard, modified or custom.

If the ideal out-of-the-box product doesn’t exist, our design, mechatronics and fabrication team is here to provide outside-the-box solutions.

It means we offer unlimited potential for continuous improvement and optimisation across your business. In safety. In efficiency. In profitability.

Standard products

Ready to go and fit for purpose, right out of the box.

Modified products

Standard products with performance-enhancing modifications.

Custom-built solutions

Designed, prototyped, tested to your specific operational requirements.

Five steps to one perfect solution

While every custom project is unique, we have a proven human-centred process that ensures we deliver the ideal solution for your people and, ultimately, your business and bottom line.



Every solution starts with a conversation. Tell us about your practical and safety challenges.


Scoping + Design

Armed with your brief, we’ll plan and design a solution you can share with your team.


Prototyping + QA

With your approval on the concept, we’ll build a prototype to test and refine our design.



Once the design is finalised, we’ll help develop the necessary safety and operation documentation.



We’ll then fabricate, transport and, if necessary, install all the units you need.
