Hardy Spicer's policy is to continue our tradition as a valuable and keenly competitive supplier of after-market products to an ever increasing number of customers in driveline and hydraulic products.

We are highly focused on customer service and to that end have established
new branches across Australia as well as licensed authorised outlets, to provide customer service and support in every mainland state and major regional centre.

From the 1940's

From it's beginnings in Burwood Victoria, Hardy Spicer began operating as a specialist in driveline components to service the automotive industry. We expanded our capabilities over the years and also incorporated hydraulics products to compliment the services required by our growing compliment of customers.

The company was incorporated in Victoria in January 1949 and became part
of the well known Repco Group in the 1950s.

For the Corporate Minded
In 1983, Hardy Spicer became a division of Repco Universal Joints, and changed its name to Repco Universal Drivelines. Acquired by BTR Engineering in June 1987, we later operated under the name Unidrive Pty Ltd. In 1988, a joint venture was formed by BTR Nylex, GKN Industries (UK) and NTN of Japan, which acquired the entire manufacturing division of Repco Universal Drivelines. Early in 2000 BTR sold its interest to GKN and NTN. In April 2002 Hardy Spicer was purchased by HS Company P/L a 100% Australian owned company. July 2019 marked the start of a new era with the international company GPC acquiring HS Company P/L.

Our Customers

At Hardy Spicer we're well aware that without our customers we would not exist, and we work hard to forge meaningful relationships for mutual benefit. We appreciate that our ongoing business is due to our ability to provide a valuable service to customers. Certainly it is something we'll never lose sight of.
The industries we service are very diverse and wide and cover areas such as automotive (both passenger and heavy transport), industrial (including machinery in a multitude of applications including paper mills), mining (from heavy vehicles to drilling etc equipment) and agricultural (including products that transfer power to various machinery implements).

Our Strength is our People

As Australia's only national specialist business solely operating in driveshaft and hydraulic products and services, customers will find that our people are highly trained individuals who are well qualified in their particular fields. Every Hardy Spicer branch is a business unit devoted to servicing the needs of customers in their particular region, with a number of branches providing on-site mobile services.

Inventory Management
Hardy Spicer's accelerated growth over recent years has placed high demands on inventory management. As part of our commitment and focus on customer service Hardy Spicer has implemented an Inventory Management System called MICQ-IF to ensure all our branches have the right stock at the right time to service customer needs.
