About Thermo Controls

Thermo Controls was established in Melbourne in 1971. Back then its founder, Ron Plowman started to import thermometers and thermostats from Italy. Italy had long been the source of the quality heating and refrigeration products and still is today. It is interesting to note the identical products sold over 44 years ago are still being sold today.

In 1975 Ron moved his family and business to the Gold Coast where it continued to supply the industry with quality components. Ron passed away in 2002 and the company was later sold to its present owners to carry on the tradition.

Today we still sell the same thermometers that Ron started his business with. These instruments haven’t changed and are still very much in demand. In addition, we have added to the original product line with our own brand of air conditioning remotes, wrenches and other products.
