Our History


In 1960 the first adaption of IHS was created with the forming of Industrial Hydraulics & Pneumatics. Starting out in Stanley St, West Melbourne with just a handful of employees the company quickly gained a reputation for providing high quality hydraulic solutions.

Industrial Hydraulic Services Pty. Ltd. (IHS) was officially registered in 1973. By 1979 it had outgrown it’s West Melbourne site and moved to Nott St, Port Melbourne. Purchasing this property enabled IHS to set up a purpose built factory to stream line it’s operations.

Continued growth through servicing the local market and exporting throughout south east Asia meant that once again IHS required larger premises. 391 Plummer St was purchased in 2000 which allowed the company to continue it’s expansion.

371 Plummer St was purchased in 2007. The existing building was demolished and a state of the art office and factory was constructed effectively doubling the available floor space.

2018 saw our latest move to Thomas Murrell Crescent in Dandenong South. A larger factory closer to many of our clients and suppliers.

This continued growth and investment meant that IHS was able to become a worldwide supplier of hydraulic products and solutions.

IHS is part of the McMillan Engineering Group.
