About Company

40 Years of Experience

Quarry Equipment Sales is a privately owned company based in Central New South Wales. It is owned and managed by David Bannister who has been involved with the sale of new and used plant and equipment into the Australian extractive industry for over 30 years.

I started in business for myself in Melbourne in 1980 under the banner DCB International Machinery Sales. I specialized in the sourcing and sale of new and used equipment and the business flourished over the next 5 years.

In 1986 I moved to Sydney and with a partner we began trading as Southern Mining & Quarry Services Pty Ltd. We specilaised in used equipment, refurbishment of Warman slurry pumps and also introduced the range of Minyu crushers into Australia. In a joint venture company SMQS and P R Wieland Pty Ltd introduced Chinese crusher wear parts into Australia. That business continues today under the banner Global Crushers & Spares Pty Ltd.

In 2000 my partner and I parted company and the various divisions of SMQS were sold off.

In 2002 I went to work with Global Crushers & Spares as their Sales Manager. Again I was involved with the sale of used equipment and also sales of new Cedarapids crushing & screening equipment. I made several multi million dollar sales for GCS and also sold the first Lippmann track jaw in Australia. I retired from GCS last August but after 6 months I’d had enough and have now created Quarry Equipment Sales Pty Ltd which I operate from my 100 acre property 21 kilometres from Forbes in Central NSW.

QES will a culmination of my 30 plus years already spent in the local Extractive Industry. I will specialize in the sourcing and sale of used equipment and will no doubt pickup some quality distributorships along the way.

I have an extensive network and database that I have built up over my time in this industry and I will be emailing out regular Newsletter of equipment based on my extensive database.
