About Us


At DHE Materials Handling Equipment, we pride ourselves on our service. We have a simple philosophy; carry extensive stock of products we sell, be the most competitive on price, and, meet and exceed our customer service expectations. We have over 40 years of industry experience and have provided standard equipment, and designed/fabricated products, to solve many difficult materials handling equipment challenges. We are known as experts in our field, and are often the first port of call when our customers are unsure what piece of equipment to supply. We not only carry extensive stock of materials handling equipment, but we also have a sizable fabrication shop that can modify existing equipment, or develop a white sheet solution to any of your materials handling needs. All DHE Materials Handling Equipment products are designed, manufactured and tested in accordance with all relevant Australian Standards. An additional capability we provide is an Inspection/Compliance service, where a conformance plate has either been lost, or possibly never existed. We can inspect, certify and provide a rating plate. In some cases, a small amount of re-work is required for the attachment to comply with Australian Standards.



DHE Materials Handling Equipment (formerly known as Drum Handling Equipment) is an Australian owned and operated business, which began supplying materials handling equipment and forklift attachments in the late 1970s under the management of Mr. John Hill. In the 1990s, the company changed hands, with a new Managing Director taking over, Mr. Keith Jackson - a man with over 40 years’ experience in the manufacturing industry. In 2017, the business further changed hands and was purchased by Mr. Dean Chamings, who started his working life in the metal trade as a fitter and turner. After 30 years working in corporate USA companies supplying various industrial and trade materials handling, tools and equipment, Dean felt it was time for a change and return to his roots with a local hands-on company. Dean’s simple business philosophy is that service wins out in the end, and he and his team are looking forward to bringing that belief to DHE Materials Handling Equipment.
