Welcome to Hill Equipment
Hill Equipment Co Pty Ltd (Herco) is a South Australian based subsidiary of A.J. Baker & Sons Pty Ltd.
We specialise in food & beverage storage, preparation and presentation equipment, and refrigeration based heat transfer systems. Our present status has been attributed to the strategic gathering of the most highly qualified individuals specialising in respective areas of business over the past 30 years. We are a proudly South Australian company employing over 50 personnel. Our large manufacturing facility and office is located at Dry Creek where we also have modern showroom facilities including a fully operational commercial kitchen.
Our team of engineers, draftsmen and technicians provide innovative design solutions which we then manufacture, install and service to meet our clients’ specific needs. We follow 2 main values at Hill Equipment: to ensure reliability and to be responsive. To ensure reliability is a preventative maintenance philosophy. It means having our service technicians visit your equipment at agreed times convenient to you and inspect the equipment from top to bottom to ensure that it will perform to its designed specification and not let you down at peak times.
To ensure reliability means that when your equipment breaks down, our mobile trained technicians are available 24/7 to get your operations functioning effectively again. A speedy response is needed because a breakdown in equipment can lead to loss of business, perishable stock and reputation.
