The iQSafety story began in the 1970’s when Lester Nichol established our parent company, Matthews Australasia. Lester spent many months travelling around Australia visiting a huge range of industrial, logistics & manufacturing based companies.
Seeing the dangers that staff working in these environments faced daily, Lester began to look for opportunities to increase safety through innovation. Research and development began at a local level and soon grew to searching the globe for the best technology partners available.
It was this search that led to New Pig in 1990 forming the start of a long term business relationship.
Since then, iQSafety has expanded to distribute a wide range of world-leading safety products with a focus on spill and hazardous goods management. Today our brands include NewPig, Haws emergency shower and eyewash systems, PBA safety cabinets and cans, plus more.
Australian owned and operated, we're proud of our contribution to the local economy. That's why all our team members are based right here in Australia, providing jobs and stability to people and families across the country - we always have, and we always will.
