About Performatec

Humble Beginnings, growth & beyond

Founded in 2004, our journey began serving the manufacturing industry by providing high quality abrasive garnet. Rapidly expanding into supplying not only abrasives but also spare parts and machinery, we became Performance Waterjet.

We quickly set the standard for quality and service, delivering unparalleled support and overnight parts delivery across major Australian cities, as well as expedited services to regional towns. As we carved our niche, our commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction guided us to new horizons.

Over the decades, Performance Waterjet has evolved, not just in capability but in vision. Recognising the diverse needs of our clients, we expanded our expertise beyond providing exceptional waterjet cutting machines.

This natural progression led to the birth of Performatec—a merging of the words 'Performance Manufacturing Technologies.' Performatec heralds a new chapter in our story, embodying our growth from specialised waterjet providers to experts in delivering and supporting a wide range of CNC machinery. Our unwavering commitment to excellent customer service is the cornerstone of our operations, ensuring we meet and exceed our client's expectations at every step.

Our Journey & Evolution

Take a look at our company's timeline and significant events.

The foundation

Performatec began its journey as Performance Cutting Supplies with a focus on supplying Australia's highest quality abrasive garnet.

From the outset, our foundation has been rooted in the core values of delivering exceptional service, quality, and precision. These principles guide our commitment to meeting the detailed needs of the manufacturing sector to this day.

Innovation and development

The brand evolved into Performance Waterjet - signifying its singular focus. Innovation at Performance Waterjet took a significant leap forward with the development of the first prototype of the garnet abrasive sludge removal system (ASR). This marked our commitment to not only supplying materials but also solving industry-specific challenges.

Diversification into Waterjet Parts

Expanding our horizons, we entered the waterjet parts market. This strategic move diversified our offerings and reinforced our position as a comprehensive solutions provider in the manufacturing technology sector.

Major Expansion

During this period, PWJ secured a substantial market share and became the appointed Australian distributor for Flow Waterjet - the world's largest manufacturer of waterjet systems.

This partnership enabled us to provide a more comprehensive array of high-quality solutions. Such a prestigious collaboration significantly bolstered our market standing, catapulting our company into the top three for the volume of machine sales nationally.

Dawn of a new future

In 2024, building on two decades of success and driven by a desire to serve the market better, we launched Performatec. This strategic evolution was born from our commitment to providing a more integrated, comprehensive suite of manufacturing solutions for a wider market.
