Long term PIA member, Drive Systems, has recently opened the doors to its additional premises in Crestmead, Queensland.

This wholly Australian-owned business first opened its Melbourne head office in early 2017, and with its steady increase in presence across Australia, it was only a matter of time before it expanded into one of the country’s most important pump markets. State Manager, David Harker, said, “We chose Crestmead as it is located in the western freight corridor of Brisbane. From here we can service the whole of Queensland with whichever freight method is required.”

Mr Harker has more than 27 years of industry experience and is a true power transmission professional, and boasts an excellent knowledge of the full range of couplings. Be it disc, grid, gear, or elastomeric couplings, David can help you with the correct coupling selection and supply ex stock.

“It’s not just motors, gearboxes and couplings, we are also stocking Mayr Brakes and Torque limiters, exclusively imported from Germany. Mayr is an industry leader and an excellent fit for our ‘quality first’ supply partner program,” Mr Harker said. Drive Systems’ founder, Dean Hansen, said, “The overwhelming majority of our suppliers are based in Europe – CMD France, Esco Belgium, Siko Germany, Mayr Germany Mini Motor Italy, and Resatec Switzerland.

Quality is our cornerstone, but our focus is on more than that. Choosing long-established, reliable manufacturing partners not only ensures quality products for our customers, but also supply chain stability. There is a reason why other brands are cheap, and it’s not always just in the quality of the manufacturing.

Service and reliable delivery are important parts of the supply chain package. A national leader in mechanical power transmission, Drive Systems has customers right across the country, and stock holdings in three states. This expansion into Queensland complements the company’s recent appointment of Motor Gear Box Products (MGP) as its exclusive distributor in Tasmania.
