Welcome to Taipan
The Taipan story traces back 30 years to a time when brothers Tim and Allan Sandilands ran a mobile hydraulic hose repair service in Queensland called Mobile HoseFixers.
While the business was successful and grew rapidly, in 2002 its supply of hydraulic hose was disrupted. Enterprising by nature, the brothers responded by establishing Queensland Hose & Fittings Pty Ltd and embarking on a multi-year mission to establish a reliable source of hose, hose tails and adaptors suitable for Australia’s harsh conditions. They explored local manufacturing as well as the creation of an international supply chain using world-class third party manufacturers.

At Taipan, in addition to testing and certifying individual products, we also test entire matched systems comprising hose fitted with appropriate hose tails using the specified crimp dimensions. Using hose and hose tails that have been tested together meets MDG41 guidelines, lowers the risk of failure and ensures that your hydraulic machinery is equipped to perform, dependably.
Taipan has a comprehensive range of hose incorporating additional variants such as high temperature hose, half bend radius hose, tough cover hose and jacking hose.
Safety. Reliability. Performance.
Safety, reliability and performance are fundamental to everything we do at Taipan.
Protect Your Employees
Nothing is more important than the health and safety of employees. That’s why Taipan hoses meet or exceed Australian and International Standards ISO6805, SAEJ517, EN853, EN856, & EN857.
They are also tested and certified by reputable third party certifiers such as Lloyd’s, Mine Safety & Health Administration and Mines Australia.
Taipan’s supply chain includes over 50 hand-picked, worldclass manufacturers in 17 countries. Our warranty claim rate is less than 0.03%, providing peace of mind for you, because fewer blown hoses and equipment failures translates to less machinery downtime and greater operational resilience.

Specifically selected for Australia’s harsh industrial and climatic conditions, you can be sure that Taipan will provide the power and performance you need, when and where you need it.
