Clements is one of only a small band of Australian manufacturing companies whose international business well exceeds their domestic business.


Formed in 1908, HI Clements quickly established itself as a leader in the design and manufacture of medical suction devices used in Australia.

During the 1950s, HI Clements undertook considerable growth in the domestic market and extended their activities into the design and manufacture of bench top centrifuges.

The 1970s and 1980s saw the company develop its international business via an extensive network. It was awarded many Australian Export Awards for its achievements.

In 1995, the business was acquired by R. R. Taylor Pty Ltd who had previously been the major supplier of component parts to Clements. This consolidation has facilitated the development of a new, strengthened management team taking the business forward.

2005 saw the successful external audit of systems and procedures to ensure that the various products and processes are compliant with ISO 9001:2000 Quality Accreditation. Awarding of the accreditation will continue Clements long time focus and commitment to quality and continual improvement.

In July 2009, Clements Medical Equipment was acquired by BMDi TUTA Limited (part of Medical Australia).

From December 2017, Medical Australia has become part of ICU Medical Inc. a United States based company which is a world leader in the development and manufacture of medical devices used in infusion therapy, critical care and oncology applications worldwide and sells those products to medical product manufacturers, distributors and end users.

Medical Australia continues to supply its high quality TUTA and Clements products as it has in the past but with the added strength and experience of ICU Medical behind it.
