IBS Engineering Supplies are your one stop industrial hardware shop on the Cassowary Coast

IBS Engineering Supplies is more than just bearings, we are your one stop for all our industrial hardware needs.

We stock a number of lines including power transmission, hand and power tools, welding and welding consumables, work wear and safety wear, fasteners and steel.

Backed up by staff with years of experience across various industries, whether you’re looking to build it, fix it, protect it, repair it or upgrade it, we can help you with it.

IBS Engineering Supplies was founded in 1978 by father and son team Ted and Bill Seawright as Innisfail Bearing Supplies selling bearings.

Over the coming years the business would grow and expand to stock more than just bearings.

In 2008, IBS moved into our current premises on Palmerston Drive, Innisfail.  The move gave us more floor space allowing us to expand our range and stock levels.

In 2021, to compliment our expanded range of welding and fastener lines, we officially opened the IBS Steel Division.

Our core driving factor are our customers.  We don’t just serve them, we talk to them, we listen to their needs, we find them the solution that meets their needs.

By listening to our customers, we find other ways in which we can help them.  We’re not just meeting our customers expectations, we’re exceeding them.

Our staff have years of experience across a number of industries, backed up with the knowledge of our supplier network, we are more than qualified to back what we sell.

IBS are part of the Industrial Supply Group, a coalition of industrial supply companies servicing customers Australia wide.  Being a member of the ISG gives us greater buying power and access to a number of suppliers across Australia.
