Established in 1955, Ashton Engineering is an Australian family owned and operated business that specialises in general engineering, fabrication and machining.
We are based in the city of Rockhampton in the state of Queensland. We are located within close proximity to the Bowen Basin Coalfields, Stanwell Industrial Park, Yarwun and Gladstone Industrial Areas, and also in the heart of some of Australia's best farming and grazing land. Thus we specialise in custom-built equipment for the mining and agricultural sectors, as well as other industries.
By the use of our wide range of equipment at our workshops, we are able to carry out most, if not all of the repairs or fabrications our clients may require.
In addition to this we have also manufactured custom built equipment for companies such as Dyno Nobel, Pacific Salt, Cement Aus, Hastings Deering (CAT), Joy Mining, Queensland Magnesia, Stanwell Corporation, Downer EDI, Rockhampton Regional Council, QR and a host of other companies, both large and small.
A considerable amount of this equipment has been made in special steels such as stainless steel, high tensile steel, wear plates, quenched and tempered plates, aluminium alloys and stainless alloys.
Our 5 tonne, 2x10 tonne and 2x15 tonne overhead gantry cranes allow us to handle large jobs with ease. Our drawing office is equipped with the latest CAD equipment to aid in our ability to produce manufacturing drawings for our clients as well as for internal use.
We also have staff certified as authorised officers to approve, build, and carry out modifications to road transport vehicles, as per the relevant Australian Standards and Transport Codes.
