The company has been around for over 150 years through the innovation of JH Fenner and Hopkins Bros. & Odlum. Today, Fenner Conveyors is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Michelin and is passionate about making conveying smart, safe and sustainable.

With 30+ service centres across Australia, Fenner Conveyors has the country's largest network of service centres. This includes major coverage of Western Australia through its service location in Karratha and state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Perth.

In this blog, we will discuss the list of conveyor products we manufacture, engineer, and service. Let’s dive in!

Conveyor Systems

Fenner Conveyors can supply and install system solutions through our conveyor engineering expertise and extensive range of engineered conveyor products. Our team can also custom manufacture to suit your needs – and if you don’t know what you need, we will work with you to find a solution.

Conveyor Belt

To meet safety standards and endure a wide range of physical and environmental conditions, conveyor belts require a carcass construction that can withstand extreme strains and forces. 

In addition, rubber covers must possess resistance and durability to safeguard the carcass over a prolonged period. The synergy between carcass construction and rubber cover compounds ultimately decides the lifespan of a conveyor belt and its cost-effectiveness.

What’s more, Fenner Conveyors is innovating rubber covers that provide sustainability benefits for mining and industrial applications. Our low-rolling resistant compounds work to lower emissions produced by reducing the power draw required for operations.

Fenner Conveyors is a proud local conveyor belt expert with quality manufacturing capabilities that offer an extensive range of Fabric Ply (including UsFlex), Steel Cord, Aramid, and Solid Woven conveyor belting - made right here in Australia at one of our state-of-the-art conveyor belt factories.

  • Durability: Designed to withstand high impact, abrasion, and varying temperatures, ensuring longevity. All our belts undergo rigorous in-house and in-field testing to ensure we supply the right belt for your application. 
  • Customisation: Belts are customisable in terms of material, width, and design, catering to diverse industry needs. We combine our quality conveyor belt carcasses and industry-leading cover compounds for maximum protection and performance.

You can also contact Fenner Conveyors if you require conveyor belt repair services.
