Welcome to Starline by Washtech

We may be the only diners in restaurants who check the cleanliness of the plate first, and then consider the food.

It’s this attention to detail and our passion for what we do that has produced robust, functional and reliable machines, and led to Washtech becoming an ISO9001 certified manufacturer.

Starline machines lead the industry with a smart combination of long product life, cost effectiveness, efficient operation and stunning cleaning results, time and time again.

We deliver outstanding post sale warranty and maintenance in the market with our national network of skilled technicians. That’s just half the story though.

Our company ethos is built around delivering simple effective design, ease of servicing, long-term parts availability and the most efficient machine operation. In short, we do anything and everything that’s required for Starline machines to outperform and outlast the competition.


The Washtech Story

The company was originally founded in 1981 by Des and Gary Brent in Auckland, New Zealand.

After spotting a new opportunity they released their first machine, an innovative undercounter dishwasher, branded Starline. The product range was extended to include glasswashers, commercial dishwashers, potwashers and industrial washing machines.

In 1989 they entered the Australian market with the new Washtech brand. A base in Brisbane was established from which to distribute. In 1993 Washtech gained ISO 9001 certification, which it has maintained ever since.

Now, as the largest manufacturer of quality professional wash equipment in Australasia, Washtech proudly looks back on more than 30 years of building robust, efficient and reliable equipment – and forward to doing more for our clients in the future.
