Home > About Us


Founded in Broken Hill in the early 1960’s, the business was created on the needs of the local mining industry. By highlighting manufacturing capacities within South Australia who had production lean periods, the business quickly developed into a major supplier into the mining sector of re-engineered products.

This resulted in Gradient Services relocating to Adelaide, where it remained until 2002. Today, Gradient Services is now based in Melbourne and through its global network of suppliers provides a one stop shop for all equipment needs to the manufacturing and resources sectors throughout Australasia.

Our Partners

At Gradient Services we pride ourselves on forming long lasting strategic partnerships with our suppliers and vendors. Vendors and suppliers are often measured on their contribution to a company’s success on three simple factors: whether they deliver more quickly, more cheaply or more effectively.

Many suppliers know that they have so much more to offer companies who are willing to think outside traditional supplier definitions. The team at Gradient Services focuses on locating suppliers and manufacturers who share our ethics and values, providing our clients far more than the right product for a great price.
