John Berends Implements has been manufacturing agricultural implements for over 50 years and is the benchmark in Australian agricultural machinery. They have a wide range of machinery, which has grown considerably over the years. In 2006, they added 2000 square metres of factory and warehouse space to streamline production. This investment shows that Berends is continuing to grow and invest in the industry.
Their products are reliable, tough and affordable, which is why they are the preferred supplier for many farmers Australia-wide. Berends manufactures a variety of equipment, including disc harrows, chisel ploughs, rotary hoes, slashers and post hole diggers.
John Berends Implements was established on the 6th October 1966, by John Berends at a weatherboard house in Narre Warren, Victoria, manufacturing grader blades, rippers, car trailers and carryalls. Increased demand required bigger premises and in 1974, the business was moved to Greens Road, Dandenong. In 1978 John Berends Implements moved to its present location in Frankston-Dandenong Road, Dandenong. By this stage, the range of machinery had grown considerably. In 1997 after completing a Bachelor of Agricultural Science and working in the vegetable seed industry for several years, John’s son Derrick joined the business as General Manager. Derrick’s wife Meredith brought her skills as an Agricultural and Resource Economist to the business in 1998. In 2006 a further 2000 square metres of factory and warehouse space was added to streamline production. Continued investment in the business is evident with recent additions of welding robots and a high-speed plasma cutter. John Berends Implements will continue to provide strong, reliable and price competitive Australian made implements well into the future. With over 50 years of experience in the agricultural business, Berends is the benchmark in Australian agricultural machinery.
