Our story began in 1981. From a small workshop, we have evolved into one of Australia’s leading suppliers of OEM standard exchange cylinder heads. In recent years, we have added new product lines to our business, and nowadays we offer a huge range of engines and engine parts, including BG Automotive aftermarket parts. Our mission is to help mechanics succeed by supplying them with reliable products they can count on, and offering technical support where needed.
The cylinder head reconditioning happens at our state-of-the-art remanufacturing plant in Hallam in Melbourne’s south-east. We pride ourselves on being a modern, clean, highly organised facility, with top-notch equipment to help us get the job done. Our factory includes an on-site jobbing shop, where we repair our customers’ cylinder heads.
All Head Services employ 20 staff, who together have a combined 200 years of experience. From the apprentices we employ to the veteran mechanics who have been with us for decades, we all share one mission: to help other mechanics succeed.

Our green initiatives
At All Head Services, we are committed to doing our bit to reduce our environmental footprint. In fact, our whole business model is about recycling and reusing cylinder heads!
In 2017, we overhauled the packaging we use in our head exchange program to make it more environmentally friendly. Previously, we had used waxed sealed boxes to deliver our cylinder heads, but the wax made the boxes non-recyclable. The new boxes are more durable and can be used for three delivery lifecycles, plus we recycle all of our metal offcuts to ensure minimal wastage.
