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

Earlier models of Wade blowers and rotary valves

These are the early models of Pneuvay Engineering's Wade blowers and Rotary valves.

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 enters the digital world with first website(1999)

"Pneuvay joins the digital world - one year after Google was launched."

Pneuvay launched its website on 1999

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

Pneuvay website upgrade (2009)

"One must constantly change and adapt to a new environment."

Pneuvay website upgraded - 2009

Pneuvay Engineering upgraded its website in 2009.

Pneuvay website revamp - better, bigger, bolder (2013)

"We always strive to improve ourselves for your ultimate customer satisfaction."

Wins Infolink award - proof Pneuvay leads other pneumatic conveying companies (2014)

"Recognition is the greatest motivator. Thank you." - Pneuvay Engineering

In 2014, Pneuvay Engineering ranked 28th overall in Infolink's list of 100 Trusted Brands and first in the Building and Construction Category. Play this video clip above and see some of the testimonials provided by our clients.

Expanding its profile internationally (2015)

Pneuvay has long been shipping products throughout Australia and overseas like Fiji and the United Kingdom. In 2015 however, the company saw a steady rise in demand in shipping products from Indonesia, New Zealand, Thailand, the Philippines, and the United States.

Pneuvay ships more products around the globe

Pneuvay's rotary valves, along with pressure pots and air slides, were among the top products with high demand outside of Australia in 2015.

Joining Pneu Powders Systems Group to cover Asia-Pacific & Middle East (2018)

We joined the Pneu Powders Systems Group in January to dramatically expand our service coverage to the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. This also added greater service capability for Australia in the powder food processing area. It was an important strategic development as the Pneu Powders Systems Group was an Asia-Pacific leader in pneumatic conveying and powder handling.
