The IPS Automation journey began with incorporation in October 1980 as Industrial Pneumatic Services. In 1985 the company founder and his wife retired to pursue other interests. The company has continued to grow under the current management team by representing quality products in South Australia and the Asia Pacific, from major international companies.
A name change took place in 1998 to reflect an evolving market place, change in focus and IPS Automation redeveloped its manufacturing division to modify imported equipment into turn-key projects to improve the productivity and efficiency of our major manufacturing companies.
In 2012, Torque Industries acquired IPS Automation to add further diversification to their already large portfolio of products and services. Torque's strategy to provide customers with a "total solution" was enhanced through IPS Automation's expertise in pneumatics, nitrogen generation and vacuum technology.
IPS Automation import machinery and equipment from the USA, England, Germany and Japan and have installed this equipment throughout Australia and Asia Pacific.
