On the 12th January 1928, Duff and Macintosh Pty Ltd was formed. Originally named Crossle, Scott & Duff Brothers Limited, the company changed its name to Duff and Macintosh Pty Ltd when Donald Urquart Macintosh joined the company in the 1930’s.
Our range is diverse – a heritage from the age of our company and our efforts to succeed in other areas of business. Our oldest relationship to a supplier is nearly 60 years, with our oldest customer relationships exceeding 70 years!
We import nearly all our products via airfreight, as fast delivery is of prime importance to us and our customers. These days we and our customers are spoilt by short lead times due to the adoption of more air freight. With fast air freight forwarders and door to door services, shipments arrive in days or weeks, instead of months.
Our customers include: All major Universities, government departments, major industrials such as BHP, ACI, Pilkington, CSR, BOC, MIM, etc. The Defence force and the major Power and Utility suppliers are also large customers of ours.
We strive to make our customers happy. Quality and service are of utmost importance to Duff and Macintosh Pty Ltd, as only satisfied customers will return.
Our internal sales records are second to none. All of them can be traced back to their date of origin, right back to January 1928. Though this may seem amazing, it has helped us in our efforts to trace specific information for our customers back to the 1960’s and even back to the 1930’s.
