The home of innovation

The first of many great innovations was the world’s first press-button toilet cistern.

Other world firsts included:

  • 1947: A revolutionary new ball-cam float valve.
  • 1966: Philmac’s ratio pressure reducing valves.
  • 1968: Philmac became the first company in the world to make compression
    fittings entirely from plastic.
  • 1997: metric compression fittings suitable for global markets.
Since those early days Philmac has developed a worldwide reputation for innovative manufacturing. A reputation built on decades of experience and investment in cutting-edge technology – as evidenced by our recent $10 million machinery upgrade. Our products are manufactured in our state-of-the-art plant in Adelaide, South Australia. This award-winning facility features some of the most advanced injection moulding and robotic assembly equipment available.
