Our History

With a history that spans over 80 years Hastings Deering is proud to have served three generations of customers and contributing to the future prosperity of the territory, state and countries in which we operate.

Established in 1932, the Hastings Deering Group is one of the top 5 Cat® dealers globally and the largest in Australia by revenue. The company is the exclusive distributor for the sale of Cat equipment, technology solutions, parts and service support in our territories. Headquartered in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, Hastings Deering has over 3,000 employees, across 23 business service centres throughout Queensland, Northern Territory, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and New Caledonia.

We sell, rent, and offer class-leading support and parts availability services for customers across a range of industries including mining, general and general construction, transport, power systems, government, agriculture and marine.

In 1992, the Hastings Deering Group was purchased by Sime Darby Berhad, a multinational organisation and one of the world’s oldest and largest Cat dealers.

Today the combination of our rich history, the expertise of our people, and our genuine commitment to understand our customers’ needs, continues to sustain Hastings Deering as a market leader that delivers the best outcomes for our customers.
