It was 2016, Steve was working at a mine site when a conveyor tail pulley collapsed causing a near miss to staff. With no way to trace the real cause behind the failure; management was told the pulley had been correctly greased. Really, it was lacking the right grease it needed to prevent breakdown. The spark was lit and the idea behind GreaseBoss was born.
Capturing the attention of Tim and Peter, GreaseBoss was established as a company in January 2020. Through a collaborative process, we developed the GreaseBoss Head Unit which deploys cloud-based software to help prevent heavy machinery breakdowns. Recognising the need for a system that can be deployed rapidly and with minimal skills and training, GreaseBoss created our patented QuickFit technology and simplified the system so that anyone can use it.
Gaining global recognition for addressing a critical gap in the industry, GreaseBoss joined YCombinator in Silicon Valley before returning to the Sunshine Coast to set up headquarters. This helped us keep our products Australian made and owned.
To meet the unique challenges of our customers, we combine our team members’ heavy industry experience to continuously develop and improve an innovative and adaptable greasing solution. Using track and trace technology and a simple reporting system, GreaseBoss assists our customers to improve their plant safety, reliability and productivity so they can lubricate with confidence.
