Philmac was founded in 1929 by Malcom Phillips and the company name has become synonymous with high quality Plastic Pipe Compression Fittings which have set the standards in the Pipe manufacturing industry.
Philmac first designed a push button toilet cistern but soon had to diversify due to the Great Depression hitting Australia in the 1930s. Philmac started manufacturing plumbing brassware, metal fittings for copper pipe and even parts for Australia’s first mass-produced car the General Motors Holden.
Philmac saw the popularity of PE Pipe Systems for the agricultural industry in the 1960s and therefore began to design and manufacture plastic valves. It was around this time that Philmac introduced brass joiners, connectors, tees and elbows for PE Pipe. The company managed to develop the world’s first all-plastic compression fitting for PE Pipe in 1967 creating a leap forward in design and the foundations for many modern-day pipe fittings. This led to a huge growth of the Philmac company into the well-known brand today who still strives to be a world class developer and manufacturer.
