Directory of Australian Valve Suppliers


[Electronics Contents Page] [International Valve Suppliers] [Valve Data]


I believe that these companies and individuals sell valves in Australia, but don't assume that this list is 100% accurate. If you know of any other active suppliers of valves to the public in this country, or you are a supplier yourself, or you have more accurate information than what is here then please let me know so that I can update the list.

The current list is categorised by state, and the entries are in no particular order within each state. This list does not intend to show any bias or preference, and I have no business relationship with any of them. It is subject to change at any time without notice.

Evacuated Envelopes, the on-line valve amp magazine, also have a list of Australian Suppliers, from where I have taken some of my information. They also have listed suppliers in many other countries around the world.

OzValveAmps has a list of valve equipment technicians in Australia. Some of these also supply valves.
