Technology Division

Established in 1985 as a provider of contract design services for OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers), and specialising in electronic control solutions, Inventis Technology (then called PNE Electronics) quickly became known within the Australian electronics industry as an innovator.

Inventis Technology has been involved with a large range of inventions and industry firsts which has attributed to its success over the years with products and services that you have probably come to rely on without realising Inventis Technology was involved.

  • The safety cut-out switch for the domestic steam iron
  • The first Australian made electric lawn mower
  • The world’s first solar pool heating system

Furniture Division

Since 1987, Gregory has been at the forefront of ergonomic office chair design and manufacture in Australia. In 2006, during the diversification, Gregory Australia Limited transferred its furniture business to a newly incorporated Gregory Commercial Furniture Pty Limited to become an umbrella organisation for Furniture and Technology Divisions.

The acquisition in April 2007 of Damba Furniture (Australia and New Zealand), incorporating Vibe Furniture, almost doubled the size of the Commercial Furniture Division and provided a new sales channel for Gregory and other commercial furniture brands into New Zealand.

In July 2008, Vibe Furniture was integrated into GCF to enhance the growth being achieved by the Inventis Commercial Furniture Division. This strategic decision consolidates the leading market position of Inventis and gives GCF a powerful platform to expand its market share.
