Power Equipment celebrates 30 years in the diesel power business

Family-owned company Power Equipment this year celebrated 30 successful years of delivering diesel power solutions to Australian customers, and 10 years of operation in New Zealand
Power equipment is the essential power source supplier for anyone operating in agriculture, irrigation, construction and many other commercial sectors

Power Equipment started from humble beginnings as an undercapitalised three-man operation in 1990 with the rights to distribute Yanmar marine and industrial engines in Australia.

The company has gone from strength to strength on the back of the Yanmar brand and its own efforts to establish a comprehensive dealer network and an enviable name for equipment supply and technical product support.

Full of ambition from the start, the company expanded into multiple market segments in subsequent years.

Picking up many new brand distributorships along the way, including the coveted John Deere, culminating into a market leading engine powerhouse.

Power equipment’s operation is backed by very substantial warehouses of product and parts as shown here at their Lyndbrook VIC distribution operation

Still looking forward, Power Equipment has most recently expanded into the supply of alternative power systems, including electrical and hybrid systems.

The company now has its head office in a modern fully owned purpose-built facility in Melbourne, and has branches in  New South wales, Queensland and Western Australia.

Its New Zealand operation also recently moved into a new purpose-built facility in Auckland.

The founding Foster family – with son Luke now the CEO – remain at the helm of Power Equipment and have their sights set firmly on another 30 years and beyond.
