When our parents John and Clare Hall took the massive step of buying Brian McKay Bearings and bringing Mallee Bearings to life, little did they know that from all the stress and unknown the business would still exist in 30 years’ time!

From the very first invoice stating ‘Distributor of Bearings, Seals, Bronze, Universal Joints, Chains and Sprockets’- the business has grown and diversified throughout the years to now supplying an array of products such as compressors, pressure cleaners and yes the yearly favourite- the industrial fan with mister sprays!

It has serviced and supplied thousands of people throughout these 30 years — the 24hour ‘round the clock’ service and attitude of if we haven’t got it, we can get it for you, has allowed the business to become ingrained into the public of Sunraysia and to those people who travel yearly to Mildura. Dad, from the very beginning, was committed to only stocking and recommending quality brands.

We are the sole distributors of many key products which are world-renowned for reliability and effificiency. Receiving awards nationally and internationally for his commitment to selling these products is a testament to this statement.

Through these products, Mallee Bearings has been able to remain a successfully-run and locally owned family business and one to which our name is synonymous with excellence and consistency.

Having grown up in the business – Dean working with Dad when leaving school, and Georgina joining the family firm in 2006 — then going on to buy the business from Mum and Dad in July 2010, we knew we wanted to continue to run “Mallee’s” in the same vein as our parents, holding strong to the company’s mission statement of ‘The local firm with the local knowledge’.

Yes, we are proudly local — and our knowledge comes from our fabulous staff who, without, Mallee Bearings would not work. From past to present our staff have all contributed to the longevity of the business and to our reputation of being the “go to” shop for all your industrial and agricultural needs. We thank you for your dedication and the never fail attitude which has got us to where we are today.

Mallee Bearings has assisted a diverse and extensive public throughout these 30 years- from graziers, blockies, wheat farmers, wineries, citrus and co-operatives to the automotive industry, mining industry and the general public.

Our services reach Sunraysia, the Mallee, the Riverland, south west New South Wales and even to Western Australia. To our many and varied customers — businesses, account holders, schools, gardeners, blockies, tradespeople — we thank you for without your support and loyalty, all of our history to present would not be possible.

Yes, February 1982 was a very proud year for our Dad, and we are sure that if he was here he would confirm that even though the business has evolved as Mildura has changed, February 2012 would be as proud a year for him.

We look forward to the coming 30 years with confidence, with two kids taking their family business to the next level of its evolution.

Yours faithfully,

Dean Hall and Georgina Williams
