Inenco Acquisitions

Inenco Group is very pleased to announce two recent acquisitions that will further strengthen our position as Australia’s leading supplier of engineering replacement parts and create new sales opportunities.



On 26 March 2018 our CEO, Roger Jowett, announced the acquisition of Global Fasteners.

Global Fasteners was established in Townsville in 2002. Owned & managed by Paul Phillips and Darren Morris, it is a family business with family values that closely align with Inenco’s.

The business adds substantial value to Inenco’s Specialty Fasteners business stream and marks the start of an exciting time as Speciality Fasteners expand into the Queensland market.

Global Fasteners operates five branches in Queensland – Townsville, Cairns, Mackay, Rockhampton and Brisbane.  Their diversified customer base includes construction, manufacturers, utilities, maintenance organisations, engineering shops and general trades.

Global Fasteners founder, Paul Phillips will remain in the business in the position of Queensland Regional Manager with Specialty Fasteners.


On 11th April 2018, Inenco welcomed Rathbone Engineering to the Inenco family.

Rathbone Engineering was established in 2004 with operations in Brisbane and Chinchilla. Founded by Brian Rathbone & Lance Brett, we are delighted they will both remain in the business.

Rathbone provides mechanical sealing products, associated equipment refurbishment services and on-site engineering services across a broad variety of industrial segments.

The addition of Rathbone to Inenco’s Seal Innovations business stream, gives our customers unrivalled access to in-house workshop capabilities, mechanical process sealing products and completes our already comprehensive market offering.

The business will continue to operate under the Rathbone Engineering and RB Sealing business names, names synonymous with quality and industrial experience.
