On 1st July 2021, Sullair Australia Pty Ltd. will acquire the business operations of Northern Controls & Engineering (Queensland) Pty Ltd. The business will continue to operate under the same business model, supporting the supply, service and maintenance of compressed air equipment to the Northern Queensland region.

Northern Controls was established in Townsville, North Queensland in 1988 and was bought by Craig and Angie Wienert in 2006. The business has been a proud distributor of Sullair and Champion products ever since and will now supply exclusively Sullair and Champion products and services to the region.

The business will continue to operate out of the same location at Unit 6/72-78 Crocodile Cres, Mount St John, Queensland, 4818, with all field service staff remaining part of the team, offering the same exceptional support to customers.

Craig Wienert of Northern Controls commented on the acquisition as an exciting new venture for the company—and one that will benefit customers.

“This is a great fit for our business. Sullair does what we do on a larger scale, and they have been our main supplier for over 14 years. We have a large population of Sullair and Champion compressors out in the marketplace and we trust them as the experts in the field. With the backing of Sullair, we can strengthen our business and provide even greater support to our customers.”

Nick Shepherd, Sales & Marketing Manager for Sullair Australia, has served as the project lead on the acquisition since early 2021.

“We have developed a strong relationship with Craig, Angie and the Northern Controls team over the years and will ensure the business they have helped build continues to grow and the customer base is supported with industry leading service levels which they have come to expect from the team in Townsville. We see this as a great fit for Sullair Australia and look forward to further expanding our footprint across Northern Queensland,” assures Shepherd.

Sullair Australia, a Hitachi Group Company, is a global leader in oil-free and oil-injected air compressors and related products that delivers robust, reliable, and energy efficient compressed air solutions for commercial and industrial purposes.

Further information about the transfer of business will be published closer to July 1st.
