Established in 1984, TQB Brands Pty Ltd (formerly Borum Importers) has been renowned as a progressive and a proudly owned Australian tool and equipment company. Originally specialising in light machinery and hand tools, the business has established an enviable reputation working closely with many loyal retail distributors throughout regional Western Australia.

Opened in the Perth suburb of Willeton by Robin and Michelle Anderson on 22 March 1984 and after 27 years of steady growth, the business was aquired by the da Camara family 1 July 2011. 

With increasing success and a strong focus on continual growth, the da Camara family continued to develop the 'Borum Importers' business and then acquired the much larger national tool distributor "Tradequip" on the 24 September 2015 and became TQB Brands Pty Ltd.

The much larger 'Tradequip' business was acquired due to it's reputation as a leading national wholesale supplier of automotive and industrial equipment for the professional trade market and established distribution services in Victoria. Over its 14 year history the Tradequip business had grown a successful distributor network of more than 1,000 reseller outlets and offered an established customer-base spanning across every Australian state and territory. The Tradequip range also added a large number of mechanical workshop products suited to the industrial and automotive markets. This diverse range added many products designed specifically for professional automotive or engineering workshop users and included tools suitable for specialist applications.

For TQB Brands Pty Ltd, 'Tradequip' represented a great fit with its strategic growth plans. Being based in Western Australia, the 'Tradequip' aquisition offered TQB Brands a solid entry into the Victorian market and, critically, an established base for expansion nationally.

With a focus on pure value-added import, marketing and distribution services, the TQB Brands mission has always been to deliver an unparalleled level of service, support, and competitive pricing to customers of retail outlets in the automotive, industrial and hardware sectors.

Our strategy will always be to provide our trading partners the advantages associated with solid and diverse supply. Our values include striving for continuous improvement in the delivery of products and services to our market place. For our distributors this means strategic marketing, continual category development, competitive pricing, on-time delivery and product reliability.

Now with a nationwide distribution network TQB Brands Pty Ltd will continue to develop its business through recognition of being a strategic long term reputable supplier of garage equipment, light machinery and tools to the Automotive and Industrial markets.

The Borum and Tradequip brand philosophy will be continually developed to become market leading for its quality, innovation and value for money.
