About Bishops

Bishops commenced operations in Port Moresby in 1972 as Bishop Brothers Engineering Limited. The three Bishop brothers started the company and initially focused on automotive engineering in the Port Moresby area. As time passed and demand for complementary products in new markets emerged, the brothers realised there was an opportunity to diversify their offerings. They grew to include a retail division as part of their company – and the rest is history.

Over the years, Bishops has grown and now operates six branches across Papua New Guinea, stocking products from leading brands around the globe. All Bishops branches have undergone extensive expansion programs to maximise efficiency for customers and to make sure we have the industrial supplies required, when they are needed.

The Bishops Difference

For more than 50 years, the team at Bishops has proudly watched PNG grow – through Independence, the PNG LNG project, and the myriad of industries that have started and flourished in this rich land.


And the biggest contribution Bishops has made to PNG’s growth has been supporting you with locally supplied stock of all the “little things” you’ve needed to get started and grow.


Walk into any Bishops branch and you’ll see just a small fraction of what we hold in stock within our warehouses “out the back”, and these warehouses reflect just another fraction of what Bishops is capable of sourcing for you, fast, through its unrivalled access to more than 100 leading brands, and international markets.


By supporting you, we’ve grown ourselves – to become the largest and most trusted brand for the supply of all the “little things”, the tens of thousands of products across a broad range of categories, that we call Industrial & Safety.


All of this has been achieved because of what makes us different from anyone else, including:

Most importantly, we see our relationship as a Partnership.


We are here to serve you, and we look forward to shaking hands to begin…
