Quality & Service Continue to delivery for Com-Pak
Com-Pak commenced business in Orange (NSW) in 1956. Now, almost six decades later, this company continues to thrive because it has adapted to market forces and continued throughout to focus on product quality and customer service as the cornerstones to achieve
Connell is also adamant that a commitment to use the Yanmar brand as the exclusive diesel engine for Com-Pak has also s enduring success. The partnership with Power Equipment and the Yanmar L Series of diesel engine now extends
almost 20 years.
While Com-Pak began life building welding machines, the company today manufactures air compressors and battery chargers, as
well as distributing many associated products. Market segments that are supplied include trade customers in agriculture, industry and mining.
Pat Our pressure vessels are made to Australian specification in s business is supplying compressors in applications that demand diesel power, often where there is a fire danger. Typically this is in mines and portable configurations.
There are plenty of Yanmar powered Com-Pak compressors which have been out in the field for ten years and more. Frequently these customers come back and order Pak.
If you get ten years service out of a good product in a harsh environment, then said Connell.

Pak began in Orange NSW but ultimately relocated to Brisbane as the Queensland mining market grew at the expense of industry in NSW and Victoria. As key customers like Thiess, Komatsu, Heavy Haulage and Hastings Deering expanded, Com-Pak also expanded and grew with them.
Since Com-Pak began specifying and installing Yanmar L Series diesel engines Connell rates the Yanmar brand as being superior in the air cooled diesel segment.
“The product is ultra reliable,” Pat O’Connell said. “I often send a Com-Pak compressor to the most remote places in Australia and do so with complete ”
The Yanmar L Series is a single cylinder air cooled diesel engine. The three models of L Series engines used by Com-Pak are 5hpL48, 6.7hp L70 and 10hp L100 models.
“We started using the Yanmar LA series and moved to the LN series when it was released. The updated L Series engines are more efficient and are quieter.”
“And beyond the product itself, the people at Power Equipment who distribute and support Yanmar offer the very best customer support. We are continually offered other diesel engines for our Com-Pak compressors, but it’s pretty easy to knock back the other brands.”
