History and timeline of Pneuvay Engineering


Travel back in time with us as we take you to the early beginnings of Pneuvay Engineering. See how it grew from just three (3) directors, working as engineers doing design and consultancy work, into one of the most renowned pneumatic conveying companies in Melbourne and around the world.


Pneuvay Engineering's timeline through the years

Timeline and milestones of Pneuvay Engineering


History and timeline of Pneuvay Engineering


Early beginnings (1982)


"We started with three directors working as engineers doing design and consultancy work on Horne Street, Campbellfield, Melbourne, Australia." - Michael Francis and Gary Smith


Michael Francis and Gary Smith saw an opportunity in the marketing place for an engineering company to specialise in the design and supply of pneumatic conveying systems. This prompted them to start a pneumatic conveying company in 1982.


First big projects


"We quickly became leaders in pneumatic conveying (constant velocity vacuum systems) and were engaged by big companies from the start." - Michael Francis


Within a few years of their company's establishment, Mike and Gary found themselves focusing on the design and pneumatic conveying systems for the following companies:

  • Grain Elevators Board (Now GrainCorp)
  • Quaker products (maker of Quaker Oats)
  • DOW Chemicals in Australia
  • Hourst Chemicals in Melbourne

Move to Somerset (1986)


"We grew significantly and required a bigger premise - thus the need to move to Somerset." - Gary Smith


With the aim of expansion in mind, the company moved to a larger office with a workshop in 1986 on Somerset Street, Campbellfield, Melbourne.


Move to Louvain (1990)


"We needed a location with excellent access to major roads and freeways for the easy transport of equipment and supply of technicians in and out Melbourne. Coburg was the best choice." - Michael Francis


Pneuvay Engineering moves to Louvain in 1990

As Pneuvay becomes renowned as a leading pneumatic conveying company in Melbourne, the need for a factory with larger offices was evident.


Why Coburg?


Coburg is a north inner suburb of Melbourne and in a strategic location. The area was originally the industrial heartland of Melbourne. Despite much of the local industry moving to the outer suburbs of Melbourne, Coburg remains central to servicing industries throughout the city. It is 9 km north from the sea port and 12 km east of the airport. There is excellent access to major roads and freeways and this allows the easy transport of equipment or supply of technicians in and out of Melbourne.

Pneuvay launched its website on 1999

1999 saw the launch of Pneuay Engineering's website - just one year after Google launched theirs.
