The incredible Mideco story

More than seven decades ago, during World War II, Horace White worked as a construction manager, building factories in Australia.

After the war, Horace shook hands with construction entrepreneurs Mr Nichols and his son Jack Nichols… and Mideco was born.

In order to ‘buy’ his half of the company, Horace sold his large family home and traded it for a small house with a big backyard in Melbourne… with his sons sleeping in a tent attached to the back of the house.

During those years, Mideco operated as a plumbing business… later finding its niche in industrial heating and ventilation. Its name was short for Mechanical, Industrial, Domestic Engineering Company.

One Friday night in the late 1950s, Horace met Doug Draper, a manufacturing pioneer. Without really planning it, Horace and Doug combined their expertise at a moment’s notice to become the first Australian company to manufacture and distribute dust collectors… which were at that time only made and sold in America.

That weekend, with a brochure and a magnifying glass, Horace worked out how to make the dust collectors here in Australia. Horace calculated everything from the materials used to the number of bolts in the frame and design.

Early the following week, Ford Motor company received the quotation, and by the week’s end Mideco had an order from one of the largest and most prestigious manufacturers in Australia, and an agency from one of the most prestigious dust collection manufacturers in the world.

Mideco was now in the business of dust collectors.

Horace and Doug remained the best of friends and business associates until Doug’s quiet passing many years later.

In time, Don White, Horace’s son, bought out the Nichols and today both have passed, but Mideco lives on…

Some Mideco highlights that followed

In 2006, Mideco patented a diesel fume control system for use in bulk material storage sheds, and received a Bulk Materials Handling Award for Environmental Project of the Year.

In 2014 we launched our flagship product, the Bat BoothTM

In providing highly effective and tailored industrial dust control and management solutions, Mideco climbed on a global stage and now stands proudly as an industry leader in environmental health and safety.
