Top quality advice and service from project commencement to completion

We spotted a gap in the market place for a engineering firm that could deliver top quality advice, service and product from the start of a project through to its completion. We have filled this niche and are able to offer research and development services, advice, expertise for projects under consideration or review, through to detailed drawings and plans, manufacture and even installation.

We have been involved in a number of large and small projects.

Team spirit and culture

As with all companies, it is the team that makes the biggest difference and team spirit is actively promoted through fun activities both in and out of work. Bragging rights from our active social events are highly sought after! Derek has made front page news with his passion for off-road 4wding and social events reflect this desire to excel. Social events have included fishing, bowling, racing, jet boats and barbeque get togethers.

In this competitive economic environment we know how to deliver results. If you need steel fabrication, design rams repaired or made, through to axles, pins, bushes just give us a call. Our team has a wide range of skills and technical knowledge. They are more than willing to help you with your requirements.
