Our History

We were established  in February 1988 originally as Wear Systems Pty. Limited.

Starting out in the small industrial area of Taren Point in the Sutherland Shire we quickly grew and moved to the manufacturing heart of Sydney’s inner city Marrickville in NSW.  Our start up operations were mainly as a distributor of hard faced wearplate, welding electrodes and wires with some limited fabrication.

Wear Plate (Australasia) Pty Ltd was incorporated in February 1999.

A true reflection of  what our core business, operations and trading functions had become, we started trading under this entity in March 1999.

Our company is wholly Australian owned and operated.

While there have been opportunities to branch out, we have maintained commitment  to local product,  employment and development staying right here in Australia.
