In 1987, L.G. Equipment was founded by David Batchen and John Treloar to develop and market a LPGas nozzle to compete with the ZVG nozzle which at the time, had market dominance within Australia and New Zealand. In 1993 Philip Treloar was asked to join and manage the company. In 2006 Philip Treloar bought a 100% shareholding of LGE and continued the drive to become a top three leader in the world of high quality and safety LPGas nozzles.

In July 2010 ELAFLEX HIBY negotiated a seamless controlling interest in LGE from Philip Treloar, who remains as Managing Director. The company name changed to ELAFLEX PACIFIC PTY LTD in September 2015.

Initially, LGE started with one product, the LG1E GasGuard nozzle with UL Listing. The new management worked on developing the Acme 1¾” GasGuard nozzle range and at the same time looked at international distributor opportunities for the GasGuard Acme and Bayonet connection nozzles. Over the ensuing years LGE developed the GasGuard brand name as a leading LPGas nozzle range in many International markets. These markets include Canada, USA, Mexico, Chile, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, India, Australia, Germany and the UK to name a few. The GasGuard product range of Elaflex Pacific remains to be the core business of the company. This is reflected by the continued use of the GasGuard product range logo.


The GasGuard brand has become an internationally known name since its conception in 1987. Continual development of the Acme and Bayonet nozzle types has seen it gain market share in many countries around the world. GasGuard products from ELAFLEX Pacific can be seen in Canada, USA, Mexico, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Taiwan, Indonesia, India, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, UK, Ireland, South Africa.

ELAFLEX Pacific also sells the ZVG 2 nozzle range into: USA, Canada, South Korea and the Philippines.
