At Allied Group we have a fresh new take on the supply of high quality products for dental, pharmaceutical and research environments throughout Australia and New Zealand. It’s an approach we have been refining and building upon from the very beginning.
Our secret? It’s the belief that we’re all just people helping people. We understand that you’re looking for superior quality, scientifically tested products. But we also know that without reliable support you can’t perform your job in an efficient, safe and timely manner. That’s why we are all about competitive pricing, hassle-free ordering, transparent communications and proactive customer service.
It’s a powerful formula. It’s the foundation of our solid industry reputation and it’s why our customers keep coming back, time and time again.
Looking to the future, our independence means we can be highly selective in the products and agencies we represent. Today and tomorrow we always strive to offer customers access to the most innovative products available in their sector.

Over the past fifteen years he has been involved in the sales and management of devices and service to the Life Science and Health Care Market.

Previous roles, including his time as Senior Business Manager at Device Technologies Australia, have helped develop Brendan’s understanding of the power of product integrity.

Melanie has a strong scientific background with significant experience working in both healthcare and research laboratories. She brings to Allied Group the technical expertise and scientific rigour developed in these previous roles and applies it to solving customer’s problems.
A passion for microorganisms and the diseases they cause led Melanie to pursue a Ph.D in Microbiology, which now gives her a deep understanding of how to find and kill them. With over 10 years experience working in aseptic and highly regulated environments, Melanie is the go to person for all things infection control and pharmaceutical manufacturing related.
Marc La Pira grew up in Melbourne, Australia and graduated from humble courses at Melbourne University and RMIT in the fields of Science and Nursing.
He spent a number of years working agency shifts through the busiest Intensive Care Units of Melbourne whilst simultaneously absorbing valuable life tools, which he recognises as the fundamentals of fallibility and how he responds today.
At the ripe old age of twenty-four he knew he found his calling card when he was hired in a sales position with Australia’s largest privately owned medical sales company. His passion for finding a solution to a problem seemed a natural fit. Applying true entrepreneurial spirit, he teamed up with his original mentor, Brendan Edwards, and now leads the sales division of Allied Group.
Support from family and friends invariably allow Marc time to nurture his passions in fitness, research, innovation and recognising the importance of relationships… with the key ingredient being humour!
