The Javelin Company
Javelin Machinery is wholly Australian owned with its head office and factory based in Hallam, Victoria in Australia. For the past 30 years, Javelin Machinery has been Australia's leading supplier of single knife slitters. We were formerly a manufacturing business. However, Javelin Machinery has been restructured as an importer of machinery that adds value rather than manufacturers. The Javelin brand is known for its quality, innovation and most importantly customer service. The key to Javelin’s new direction is its ability to source quality equipment from Asia with strong contacts based in China who negotiate pricing and monitor quality control on behalf of the company
Serving Global Customers
Between 1985 and 2005, our machines were locally manufactured at Javelin’s factory then located in Knoxfield, Victoria. Over 500 machines have been produced with almost all of Australia's leading converters of adhesive tapes, stamping foils, fiberglass, sign vinyl, rubber/gaskets and fabrics purchasing Javelin machines, while over 200 machines were sold to converters in USA, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Japan, Indonesia, Ireland, India, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, France, Hong Kong, China, Brazil, South Africa, Mexico, Italy and Columbia.
Years of Expertise
Javelin Machinery, founded and owned by Ben Mackie, had its beginnings as a specialist converting operation trading in the name of B J Mackie & Co (Aust) Pty Ltd from 1970. In 1984 Javelin Machinery was formed as a separate company to manufacture and market single knife slitters, using the converting expertise gathered over the previous 14 years. Javelin Machinery sells its converting expertise as an integral part of the partnership which it considers to be as important as the machines themselves.
Today, while retaining significant Australian manufacturing content in our machines, in order to remain competitive and meet customers’ requirements Javelin sources the best automatic machines manufactured in Asia and adds value by upgrading all aspects of the machine and adding safety guarding which meet Australian and International standards. All Javelin machines meet AS4024-1-2006 requirements for safety. A risk assessment is supplied with each machine.

When you purchase a Javelin machine you also benefit from our 40 years of converting experience which more often than not is as important as the machine itself.
