Established: 1947
Country: Australia

The Hanimex Group was founded in Australia in 1947 by Jack Hannes to import European and Japanese cameras, lenses, flashes and photo accessories to Australia and New Zealand. The name was an abbreviation for “Hannes Import Export”. Initally, the equipment sold under the Hanimex brand was produced by Finetta, Montanus, Vredeborch and Dacora in West Germany, by Pentacon in East Germany, and by Tōkyō Kōgaku, Sedic and Royal in Japan. Later the Hanimex Group also sold Hanimex-branded products in the USA.

In 2004, Fujifilm acquired the Hanimex Group.

The Hanimex Group did not manufacture photographic equipment, but relied on various OEMs as a source for its branded products.
