Manufacturing has for many years formed the backbone of the Australian economy, but with rising living costs, and consequent increases in the minimum wage over the last few decades, Australia has now become an expensive place to manufacture.
Manchester Engineering is a highly experienced steel fabrication company based in Queensland, Australia. The company’s main workshop is located in Kingston, south of Brisbane, where it employs around 20 qualified tradesmen.
Manchester Engineering specialises in structural, mining and marine fabrication, and has the capability to undertake installation and erection throughout Queensland and Australia.
In addition to the Brisbane facility, Manchester Engineering also has a large fabrication workshop in Shandong Province, China, that adheres to the highest manufacturing standards and can produce steel fabrications to AS1554. With a capacity of 50,000t a year, the Chinese facility can handle very large-scale fabrication projects and has supplied fabrication work to some of the biggest ports and mines around the world.
Manchester Engineering encourages customers to visit either of its facilities to observe the manufacturing process and witness the projects come to life. The company guarantees that customers will be satisfied with the quality of the work.
In addition to fabrication capabilities, the company can source a wide range of products through its Chinese partners.
