Not only do we manufacture and supply some of the best PE welding machinery on the market, we also offer international training and advice – so our clients know they’ve got on-ground support to ensure a premium outcome, every time, everywhere.

Worldpoly’s mission is ensure site appropriate equipment, service and training is available to our clients regardless of their location. The sites in which our equipment operates varies from city centres to the most inhospitable deserts, and as such a one size fits all mentality simply will not do. From mining to civil, irrigation to agri/aquaculture, our clients are widespread. We tailor our offering to each individual client, and this has led Worldpoly to garner a reputation for genuinely caring about each client and each job.

The polyethylene welding industry is an extremely niche market, which in turn poses a variety of challenges and benefits. Our clients often know what type of equipment they need for their site, and upon consulting with us, can fine-tune that requirement to a specific machine or modification. In saying this, many clients require additional onsite training to ensure their operators are able to safely and efficiently operate not just our equipment, but any polyethylene pipe welding machine.

Not only do we manufacture  and supply some of the best PE  welding machinery on the  market, we also offer  international training and  advice – so you know you’ve  got on-ground support to  ensure a premium outcome,  every time, everywhere.

The Hall family’s polyethylene pipe heritage spans over 3 generations and almost 60 years.

Many say polyethylene is in their blood, or even within their DNA!

PART OF POLY'S HISTORY

The business origins begin when Tom Hall Snr. started as a tool maker in Australia some 80 years ago, following a position as Foreman at the Commonwealth Aircraft Factory in Melbourne during the Second World War.  During an early visit to the UK, Mr. Hall Snr. made a visit to the UK’s ICI company where he was one of the  first in the world to be introduced to their new extrusion grade polyethylene. Coming from a wheat farm in  outback Australia, he quickly realised the potential for Australian polyethylene pipe production for the  many possibilities and improvements it could bring to rural Australia. 

The PE pipe family business, soon named Flowmaster, was born in 1960 and its initial success came the  old-fashioned way – from orders received selling pipe from farm to farm across Victoria and Southern New  South Wales. As the Hall family business was the first to produce polyethylene in the Southern Hemisphere, Tom Hall was revered for his expertise and wrote the first Australian dimensional specifications for polyethylene pipe, and it was during this time that Rob Hall played hide and seek with his brothers amongst coils of pipe in their Carlton (Melbourne) factory.

Rob Hall served his business apprenticeship as right-hand man to Tom while he learnt the skills needed for  manufacture, sales and service know-how. Rob worked as Sales Manager with Flowmaster for many years  before expanding into another operation, being Von-Roll Hall. This was a joint-venture with the Swiss  company von Roll, who were one of the inventors of electrofusion jointing for PE and PP pipe systems. 

Von-Roll Hall manufactured polyethylene pipe fittings to 1200mm diameter, serving many clients in both  Australia and overseas. The company evolved into Wavin Hall, following the acquisition of the von Roll  Plastics Division by the Dutch company Wavin, the leading supplier of plastic pipe systems and solutions in  Europe with Licensees throughout the world. As the Australian Licensee of Wavin for eight years, Wavin  Hall gained excellent expertise and exposure to technology and international business in the plastic pipe  industry. 

Rob Hall has been a part of the Australian Pipe industry for almost 60 years, and has had significant roles  while shaping it over time. In the 70’s and 80’s, Rob was on the Australian Standards Association  Committee for Plastic Pipes and Fittings, and was also the representative for Small Business on the Senate  Committee for the Plastics Industry in the 90’s. 

 
Worldpoly is proudly now in its third generation with the addition of Nikita and Jordan Hall.
