Conveyor Supplies NQ began operations in Townsville in March 2015, following 20 years of trading as Printing and Mechanical Services – initially formed by Brian Armit in September 1995.

As a Printers Engineer, Brian had over 20 years mechanical experience in the newspaper industry in North Queensland. This experience included design and maintenance of conveyors and associated equipment as well as developing a work ethic that required prompt service and delivery – to keep the product moving. Using only quality products with proven reliability and manufacturer backup was also a key component of this training. Our service today reflects these values.

In 1996, Brian was approached to distribute PVC and specialty conveyor belting into North Queensland.
Regular travel throughout North Queensland on printing business meant that it was a natural progression to make calls on farmers and the vast array of agricultural packing sheds in the region.
