Janke Australia formerly Janke Bros began in 1922
when Eric Janke commenced business as a blacksmith and wheelwright
in the small rural township of Mt. Tyson, situated on the
Darling Downs – Queenslands premium farming district.
Eric held an enviable reputation for his ability and honesty.
As time progressed his skills were sought to repair or install
boilers and cheese making equipment in cheese factories
over “the Downs” and beyond.
March 1953, brothers Clive and Kevin were joined by younger
brother Ian, to form the partnership of Janke Bros. As the
bulk handling of grain was commencing, the Janke Brothers
were involved in the manufacture of a variety of truck,
field and header trailer bins. This was followed by other
products including farm buildings, television towers, silo
bases, harvester attachments, and a wide range of multi-implement
is at the cutting edge of custom machine design and manufacture.
The company is consistently striving to create more effective
environmentally economic machinery. Their products therefore
inherently lend themselves to the practices of the conservationist
farmer and are the preferred tools operated by growers utilising
minimum or zero till farming techniques.
Bros. passed on the ownership of the company in early 1996
to some of Australia’s leading agriculturalists. The
company is still proudly Australian and retains its reputation
of the highest quality and service in the industry .
new owners in 2017, Janke Australia relocated its factory to Dalby.
With a new management team, the company is fully committed to
manufacturing machines and spare parts for the complete range of Janke products.
designs are developed with input from leading growers across
Australia. The result is robust, reliable equipment that
performs effectively and efficiently under any Australian
condition - from deep ripping to no till farming applications.
Janke machines can be found working successfully in every
farming region throughout Australia, further confirming
their claim to extreme durability and versatility.
(Australia) endeavours to continue contributing to the preservation
of quality Australian farmland and the sustainability of
the industry, aspiring to promote the use of machinery that
enables growers to work their country responsibly and productively.
