Company Profile

After pioneering the extrusion of Nylon11 in the early 1960’s in Adelaide, South Australia, Ivan Packham established Brotec, a plastic tubing extrusion company with a focus in the pneumatics field, in 1989. Today, Brotec is one of Australia’s leading plastic extrusion companies, still offering quality plastic tube to a number of industries. Though our products and services, manufacturing capacity and capability, and customer portfolio has expanded since that time, Brotec remains committed to delivering the personalized service that was founded in 1989. In fact, Brotec is proud to state that today, after decades of continued plastic extrusion, many of our first clients remain loyal customers.
