About HMA Group Divisions

Formed in 1966, Halley & Mellowes represents an impressive list of internationally respected companies and manufactures under licence to a number of these companies. We also manufacture a range of products and equipment developed and designed by our own engineers. In 1990 an employee owner group was formed and acquired 50% of the company from co-founder Mike Mellowes. These shareholders span a diverse section of the company and underwrite the efficient function of the Halley & Mellowes Group.

The Halley & Mellowes Group of Companies (The HMA Group) manufactures, services and sells a wide range of capital plant equipment to a diverse range of industries. This includes the mining sector, processing, material handling, power generation and oil and gas refineries. To these sectors we provide services such as material handling, geotechnical instrumentation, boiler cleaning technology and engineering consultancy services, amongst others.

The group was originally comprised of Halley and Mellowes, Greenbank Terotech, Ceramatech, POGC Sensor Technology, Diamond Power Australia, Valveco, Techniplan, Measurement Resources, Geotechnical Systems Australia, Select Transmission & Motors Australia and Uretech.
