Printing and Mechanical Services was formed by Brian Armit
in Sept 1995. Initially the business serviced the mechanical needs of
the commercial printing market in North Queensland.
The Mechanical Services arm of the business began in 1996
when Brian was approached to distribute PVC conveyor and speciality belting
in the North. This was an ideal association as Brian had over 20 years
mechanical experience in the newspaper industry in North Queensland that
included design and maintenance of conveyors and associated equipment.
The printing business required Brian to travel regularly
from Mackay to Cairns and the Atherton Tablelands, so it was a natural
progression to make calls on farmers and the vast array of agricultural
packing sheds in the area.
Over time the Mechanical Services has developed into a
very strong arm of the business developing secure relationships with leading industry suppliers. We now distribute and service a range
of products that will suit any packing, picking or processing operation.
We supply and fit PVC and polyurethane conveyor belting,
coding printers, conveyor components, motor gearbox drives, roller lagging
and agricultural and industrial brushes. We have extensive experience
in the banana industry and many other agriculture, aquaculture and industrial
Brian has an Assoc Degree in Mechanical Engineering
