We are Kirby

We are Kirby

With our roots in refrigeration, dating back to 1934, we were born from the amalgamation of two of Australia’s leading refrigeration wholesaler distribution companies. Today, we are Kirby, a Beijer Ref Company. Part of the Beijer Ref Group, a world-leading global wholesaler of cooling technology and HVAC.

Kirby looks beyond the basics of wholesaling to be more than a supplier of parts. We strive to provide an end-to-end service to our customers. We do this by connecting our customers to the best products and solutions and the highest quality service through our branch network.

Working together with you we can move you forward, with business tools and technology that improve the efficiency of what you do, so you can achieve more.
