In 1976 Ian Hill and Chris Perry, farmers from near the Stirling Ranges, in Western Australia, look for ways to improve the way grain is moved from field to silo. They established Burando Hill in 1978. Burando Hill introduces mobile field bins and the first commercial Chaser bin concept to Western Australia. 1985 saw them win supply of the Farm King range of augers from Canada. During 1989 the business was established in Katanning where they continued to source equipment and technology from around the world that they wanted to bring to WA Farmers.
Wheat price hits $60 per tonne in 1990. Many businesses were closing. Against the flow manufacturing of the Burando Hill boom spray began in 1991. This enabled continued growth and expansion into other manufacturing and distribution opportunities. In 1998 Burando Hill built the facilities located at Lot 5 Nyabing Road, Katanning. This is our head office, also sales and display area with an extensive parts department and large workshop for servicing, assembly and manufacturing.
In 1996 Burando Hill expands its distribution beyond Western Australia and enlists the help of dealers in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.
In 2003, a presence in Geraldton was created with the establishment of a retail facility. In 2010 Burando Hill China Division is established, focusing on manufacturing in and importing products from China. In 2015 the Hill family became the sole owners of Burando Hill.
In 2011 a new branch was opened in Wangaratta, Victoria. The business was moved to 39 Gibson Street in 2017 to a bigger building. This branch now has a retail frontage supplying parts and workshop service, as well as sales.
Burando Hill has focused on expanding its Australia wide dealer network for many of our products, which started with several dealers, to where the products we distribute are now being represented in almost 50 different locations throughout Australia.
With further strengthening of our network on the horizon, and more brands and products being added to our already extensive line-up, Burando Hill will endeavour to remain a strong influence in providing innovative technologies to Australia's future producers.
