After working extensively with Hamersley Iron/Rio Tinto in the mining industry for over 10 years, Malcolm Hooper decided to hone his expertise and make the switch to work with a big-name U.S. valve and automation business. As an Australian representative, Malcolm thrived in the supply of engineered products to Australian industry – having worked in it himself for many years. However, as this U.S. business continued to grow, Malcolm craved an uncomplicated model that allowed him to harbour closer connections with his clients.
Malcolm and Rosemary Hooper decided to start their own business providing valve products to Australians in 2006. This business would be a wholly Australian owned and operated company focusing on four key pillars: on-hand technical support, quality compliance, quick turnaround and on-time delivery. These pillars were designed entirely to prioritise and support our clients in making simple, fast purchases to keep business flowing.
And that’s where we are today – a major supplier of valves for some of Australia’s largest mining and blue-chip companies, including Rio Tinto, Fortescue Metals Group, Water Corporation, SSWA, ENI, Score, Origin, GR, BHP, Santos, APA, AGIG and Woodside.
