History of the Company

Founded as WF Dixon in Newcastle in 1965, as a distributor of general hardware components for panel builders, the owners identified the potential of the dynamic electrical sector in time to set the stage for upcoming challenges. Realigning Dixontech into two separate companies with Colterlec becoming the components distribution company were major steps to emerge as an industry leader in Regional Northern NSW. Since 1996 Colterlec has expanded across the country to form the Automation and Control Group. In 2015 the Group became Colterlec and now has operations/warehouse facilities Australia-wide.


Being a reliable supply partner for major industries including wholesalers, mining, manufacturing, water treatment, infrastructure, oil and gas and food and beverage for many years we know that flexibility, as well as short delivery times, can be crucial for a successful production process. With our excellent range of high-quality products at competitive prices, we ensure that our customers are returned the best value for their investment and obtain products that meet their needs perfectly.
