Part of GCEM Group, Hawker Richardson is the leading supplier of industrial assembly and production machinery and tools in Australia and New Zealand. Established in 1923, Hawker Richardson originated as a machine assembler dealing in specialised metals.

When automotive and aviation manufacturing was booming in Australia, Hawker Richardson became the number one supplier of best-in-class industrial assembly tools and solutions. To this day, Hawker Richardson continues to be a force in this market, establishing partnerships with general manufacturing, aviation, automotive and electronics industry customers, who have come to rely on Hawker Richardson for their wealth of product knowledge, industry experience and unsurpassed service support.

The introduction of these technologies enabled Australian and New Zealand businesses to expand and transform, putting them on the map and on the same page as their international counterparts and competitors. 

It was during this time that Hawker Richardson established long-term partnerships with world class SMT, robotics and inspection brands including Yamaha, Essemtec, GE and Vision Engineering, who they continue to partner with to this day.
