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

new branches across Australia as well as licensed authorised outlets,
to provide customer service and support in every mainland state

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
of the well known Repco Group in the 1950s.
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.
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
