Staff Profiles

Stan Zelek – Owner – Big Boss

Being an Engineer and Boiler Maker by trade, I started Speedie Hydraulic Services in 1972 as a small family business. After nearly 50 years of business, I am proud to have a good team that will take Speedie’s to the next level.

Although originally, we repaired hydraulics, lubrication, Automotive Tools among other things, we started repairing Airless Spray Equipment and are now one of the largest Authorised Repair and Service agent for both Graco and Wagner in South Australia.

Daniel Sloan – Workshop Manager

I started working at Speedie Hydraulics in 2003 while still attending high school, as my school studies progressed I also undertook a school based apprenticeship through Tafe SA. After completing my year 12 studies I continued at Tafe to complete my certificate in Mechanical Engineering Production.

In my time at Speedie’s we have become Authorized service agents for Graco and Wagner which has led to me attending multiple product training courses and product seminars in Adelaide and interstate.

A large part of my on the job training has been around hydraulic high pressure pumps/cylinders and lubrication equipment as well as a large variety of garage and workshop equipment which has lead me to see a lot of weird and wonderful pieces of machinery and has given me the opportunity to strip, inspect and learn the many different ways something can work which is invaluable experience when it comes to fault tracing the root cause of an issue, whether it’s hydraulic, pneumatic or airless spray.

Mark Venn- Sales Manager

I have been working within the Spray Industry for the past 15 years.

Prior to becoming the Sales Manager at Speedie’s, I worked for Graco Australia within the Contractor Equipment Division for the past 12 and a half years looking after the VIC, TAS, SA territories. During this time, I travelled extensively across Australia and the parts of the USA where I received specialized training on Graco Products and visited the manufacturing facilities.

Before that, I had work for several other Graco Distributors in Melbourne.

I also have a Diploma in Business Management and a Trade Certificate in Painting and Decorating, so I have really been working within the Paint and Spray industries most of my working life.

Now that I have relocated to Adelaide, I look forward to making Speedie’s not only the one stop shop for your Spray and Hydraulic repairs and service, but to grow the business and give our customers an exceptional customer experience that is second to none.
