Auspex: Made for Australian plumbers29 March 2014
Auspex has been manufacturing cross-linked polyethylene pipe and crimped fittings for the Australian plumbing market for almost 15 years now. Noticing trends towards the worldwide use of polymer plastics and easier to install crimp focused systems, father and son duo John and Glenn Bines took advantage of this development and brought this innovative product to the Australian market.
After extensive research and endless planning in the Bines’ Bentleigh lounge room, Auspex was born. Auspex started out manufacturing cross-linked polyethylene pipe (PE-X) and a matching fitting system in DR brass. This system, still in manufacture today, has provided an Australian alternative to an ever-growing market for plastic pipes and easy connection systems used to transport potable water.
Auspex is an Australian-owned company, committed to the Australian plumber and focused astutely on what plumbers need from their products and the unique Australian conditions. This has helped Auspex to drive innovation and set new standards in the plumbing industry over the past fifteen years, with the expansion of its range to include pipes for hot water, rainwater and recycled water applications, as well as a range of fittings to adapt to other PE-X systems.
Auspex’s Australian base means it can respond rapidly to the needs of its customers and quickly develop new fittings and special short runs to satisfy unusual builds or the ever-changing market demand.
The future looks bright for Auspex. The company is committed to remaining at the forefront of polyethylene pipe technology with new products and tooling continually being developed for the existing system and the business continuing to expand into associated areas.
Customers say Auspex products are quick and easy to use, adaptable to other brands of PE-X pipe, durable and high quality. It’s this focus on a quality product and exceptional foresight for what Australian plumbers want and need from their pipes that will see Auspex continue to grow for a long time to come.
