Our Story

“Our mission has always been clear: to provide world class food equipment with expert technical support, so that our customers can produce the highest quality products with great efficiency” – David Van Rooy, CEO.

Vanrooy Machinery was established in 1978 by John Van Rooy, who was inspired by his own experiences in the baking industry and the lack of innovative choices available to him and many others. With his European heritage, John was certain there was better out there, so he travelled to one of the biggest European bakery exhibitions in the early 1970’s, found the exact new technology he wanted, and imported the first two rack ovens into Australia. It was here that he saw a business opportunity.

Fast forward 44-years and this fourth-generation, family-run company now offers a wide range of innovative, automated and specialist equipment to the best in the business. Specifically, the Vanrooy product range caters for Bakery, Patisserie, Chocolate, Gelato, Ice Cream, Pizza, Food Processing, Hospitality, Industrial and Food Manufacturing equipment.

We are deeply guided by four key values: Customer Service, Teamwork, Innovation, and Integrity. It is the accumulation of these core qualities that has turned our family-founded and operated business into the number one supplier of food equipment to the industry in Australia and New Zealand.
