The science of mobile lighting has sat at the heart of the Allight brand for more than 20 years. From worldwide headquarters in Perth, Western Australia, design, engineering, procurement and assembly teams produce almost 3,000 lighting towers a year. Powered by either a CAT or Perkins engine, each tower features the world’s most reliable components as well as a unique mast design and light assembly which makes sure the maximum output reaches the work platform for optimum productivity and safety.
The Primax brand (which is known as Sykes in some world markets) has been a major force in world pump markets for over 40 years. Much of its success has stemmed from its priming systems which improve fluid handling efficiencies and greatly reduce maintenance requirements. A ‘snore’ facility built into its ground-breaking auto-priming pumps means they can run dry without damage for extended periods.
Manufacturing bases in New South Wales and Dubai have enabled Sykes to systematically add to their domestic market domination via established distribution networks across a number of key global markets including South Africa, the Middle East, Indonesia, and the Americas.
AllightPrimax emerged following the acquisition of the Australian-based Sykes business in November 2010 by Allight Holdings Pty Ltd. The pump specialist sits comfortably alongside our other world class brands; Allight towers, FG Wilson generators, Perkins engines and Rotair compressors. Other de-watering brands which are distributed in Australia include Grindex submersibles and Dragflow dredge pumps.
The combined business generates annual revenues of $250m and employs 350 people worldwide.
