HARDI Australia is often the envy of other manufacturers when it comes to design, development and testing of spraying equipment. They have 15,000 square metres of modern development, manufacturing and distribution facilities situated on a 10ha location, 10 km from the Adelaide CBD.
The Australian product development centre works closely with 5 other global HARDI development centres to bring together the best spraying technologies for Australian farmers.

With the largest design and development engineering team working on spraying equipment HARDI is able to offer sprayers which are ideally suited for Australian spraying conditions.

The HARDI dealer network of more than 300 locations Australia-wide ensures Hardi provide quality sales, service and parts support to all their customers and the know how for accurate chemical application.

Regional distribution centres in Brisbane and Perth are strategically placed to support the dealer network and farmers who cannot be reached overnight from Adelaide.


A Danish industrial fairy-tale

The HARDI idea started in 1957, when Hartvig Jensen established the company. He was a gardener and needed a quality sprayer. After a few years the company expanded horticulturally and invested in large production facilities outside Copenhagen. The HARDI sprayers were soon retailed not only to Danish, but also European farmers, and the company expanded rapidly.
