Silvan Corporate Overview

Established in 1962, Silvan has been a pioneer in the development and manufacture of agricultural machinery to meet the needs of Australia’s primary producers. Always at the forefront in the development of new technology, Silvan combines strong innovative management with a comprehensive understanding of today’s agribusiness.

In 2005 Silvan opened their own operation in New Zealand - based in Hamilton.

Silvan incorporates Silvan Spraying Equipment and Selecta agricultural and hardware merchandise and accessories.

Silvan Spraying is a specialist manufacturer with world-leading expertise in crop-protection sprayers and related equipment. A leader in the design of high-volume and low-volume sprayers, Silvan has a reputation for producing world-class products, and has grown to become the largest Australasian manufacturer of crop-protection equipment. By adding the Jen-ell cable-suspended boomspray rigs to Silvan’s integrated broadacre sprayer range, Silvan now has Australia’s widest range of boomsprays. Specialised equipment has also been developed for crops including vegetables, grapes, apples, pears, citrus, bananas, olives, wheat, cotton and turf.

Selecta is the merchandise and components division established to service the accessory requirements of primary producers, plant nurseries, the home gardener, handyman, builders, plumbers and landscapers. The Selecta range features products to maximise the capabilities of existing equipment such as pumps, hoses, hand sprayers, nozzles and nozzle holders, fittings, filters, fire fighters and 12-volt portable sprayers, and the Jen-ell range including foam markers and misters.

Selecta is also the manufacturer and distributor of the Selecta and Sherlock range of tradesman wheelbarrows, and supplies these and a range of other Hardware items such as Cyclone garden tools, pumps and trolleys to the national hardware market. 

The recent launch of Silvan Custom Build now allows you to design a unit to suit your specific requirements for spraying, water transfer, diesel transfer, dust suppression and land care products.
