Our Philosophy

ELB Equipment sells premium machines to a customer base that takes the long view.

We recognize that to be sustainably successful we must do everything we can to ensure our customer’s success.

This means treating them like partners:

  • Understanding their needs
  • Offering informed advice
  • Maximizing availability of spare parts
  • Provisioning a well-qualified fleet of field service technicians
  • Doing the right thing

Many of our customers are second- and third-generation family businesses. In order for us to be a preferred supplier across generations, maintaining relationships for generations is essential—and relationships are always between people. As such, a strategic pillar of our business is nurturing a high-performing staff over the long run. We are proud to boast six employees with over 30-years’ tenure and an average for all staff of over ten-years.

ELB Equipment strives to be a balanced and sustainable organization with delighted stakeholders.

  • Our customers trust us
  • Our employees take pride in the business
  • Our suppliers are engaged with us
  • Our shareholders are profitable

History

Spun off from Mole Engineering in 1997, ELB Equipment can trace its roots in underground construction equipment in Australia & New Zealand to the 1950s when the company became the world’s first authorized distributor of genuine Ditch Witch equipment.

Though initially focused exclusively on the Ditch Witch brand, the company has since expanded to offer a full suite of underground construction products including Hammerhead, Subsite, American Augers, Trencor, and Akkerman brands. Today we offer virtually every machine needed for new installation or mechanical rehabilitation including directional drills, vacuum excavators, pneumatic piercing tools, pipe bursters, trenchers, and tunnelling machines.

In 2009 the company became the authorized distributor of the Komptech brand and entered the waste management industry. Like the rest of ELB Equipment’s portfolio of brands, Komptech is a world leading brand, focused on innovation, performance, and efficiency. Though a new market place for the company, by coupling a premium quality product with its tried and tested philosophy of treating customers like partners and providing an unparalleled level of parts and service availability, the Komptech brand has quickly become the must have product in the region.

To better meet our customers needs, ELB Equipment added additional brands in the waste management segment including high speed grinders, stacking conveyors, and modular wind sifters. This has enabled us to provide our waste processing customers a full range of products and a consistent level of support and service.

ELB Equipment has full-service branches in eight locations around Australia and New Zealand as well as a number of well-trained authorized service agents. This allows us to provide a second-to-none after sales experience, ensuring that the machinery we supply remains consistently productive.

We are proud to be a part of the ELB Group, a global supplier of high quality equipment and engineering services since 1919.
