Our President’s Message

Dear visitor,

Incitec Pivot Fertilisers boasts a long and proud history in the fertiliser industry of Australia.

It is our people who through many generations have made us into one of Australia’s largest fertiliser companies. As we celebrate our 100th year, let me take you through the long and rich history of our company.

Incitec Pivot Fertilisers had its origins in Australian Co-operative Fertilizers which began in Toowoomba, Queensland in 1915. Then, Australian Fertilizers Ltd formed in 1920 in New South Wales and took over the Single Superphosphate (SSP) operations of the Elliot brothers which began in 1862. Meanwhile, its Victorian counterpart Pivot Limited was formed in 1918, creating The Phosphate Co-operative Company of Australia Limited in 1919.

Incitec Fertilizers and Pivot Limited merged in 2003 to create Incitec Pivot Limited, and three years later the company’s fertiliser production capacity more than doubled with the purchase of Southern Cross Fertilisers.

Incitec Pivot Fertilisers also boasts having Australia’s oldest soil testing service, the Nutrient Advantage Laboratory, providing nutritional analytical services for farmers for more than 55 years.

Join me for a walk down memory lane in this our digital exhibition, a short account of our 100 year history.

Regards,

Stephan Titze
President, Incitec Pivot Fertilisers
