We have a long and proud history of supplying quality products to Australia’s agricultural sector with quality direct drilling and deep tillage points. Made from high quality steel, our agricultural products are built to last, regardless of your soil type or sowing conditions.
As the first manufacturer to develop the two piece point system which allows the point and the adaptor to be replaced independently, we know that maximising productivity is critical for all Australian farmers.
As one farmer put it, investing in seeding and tillage equipment is a significant expense. To get the job done properly, you need to ensure the ground engaging tools fitted to your equipment are of the highest quality possible. Our range includes:
- Direct drilling – eight different points available to suit varying field conditions, sowing systems and soil types. From our range of knife blades to our single shoot seeding points and winged seeding points, the range can be fitted to a wide range of equipment with a choice of 14 adaptors.
- Deep tillage – choose from 25 various components, including a wide selection of shank assemblies and accessories. All points are available with tungsten tips making them ideal in tough conditions.
Since the upgrade of our Number 2 Foundry in Bendigo last year, we’ve been able to significantly increase output, with consistent quality control built in from the start

2013 promises to be an exciting year for the team at Keech as we focus on increasing our product range and expanding our reach in the export market.
In the domestic mining industry, we will improve our rope shovel range and upgrading a number of other existing product lines, which we hope to launch mid-year. On the export front, we will continue to work with the heavy mining industry in Chile, while reaching into new markets in Europe, Mongolia, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic.
The quarry industry will also be an important focus for us. In partnership with our long term distributor, Hitachi, we will focus on increasing market share of both the KeeplateTM and WearplateTM products which are ideal for extending the longevity of equipment used in quarries across the country.
In the year ahead, we will also go back to our roots with an increased focus on growing our market share in the ag sector. Keech has a long and proud history of servicing the ag market with our range of high quality deep tillage shank assemblies and accessories and direct drilling points. The completed upgrade of our Number 2 Foundry last year has enabled us to improve the consistency of our range, along with our output.
The next 18 months will also see an upgrade to our Number 1 Foundry – again with a focus on increasing output.
All in all, it’s shaping up to be an exciting year for the team at Keech. We look forward to keeping in touch in the months ahead.
