The 2010's Are Over!

Here are some highlights from the last ten years...

As we enter into a new year, and also a new decade, we thought it would be great to take a moment and reflect on the 2010’s for us as a company and some key highlights from around the world. 

27 Metre Drill Feed Cylinder

We successfully repaired a 27 metre long cylinder.


We created the R2900 SuperLift with the MKII Forged Rod.

Now available with Bellows for Additional Protection.
Side Tipper Hydraulic Cylinders

We launched our Manufacturing division.

We can now manufacture hydraulic cylinders, protective bellows, polymer wear parts and a range of other mining components.
Solar Panels

We installed over 380 solar panels to our Kewdale premises.

Other key achievements:

  • Increased staff levels at our Kewdale branch.
  • We demonstrated consistent company growth year on year.
  • We increased our Service Exchange facility to over 100 components. 
  • We replaced 3 x lathes, a horizontal borer and all chrome plating rectifiers. We also added a CNC machine and lathe with 9 metres between centres. 
  • We increased our barrel boring capacity up to 1 metre diameter x 6 metres long. 
  • We redeveloped our company website. 
  • We were QA certified to ISO 9001:2015 by Lloyds.

We intend to consistently improve our service throughout the 2020’s and continue to be WA’s preferred hydraulic cylinder supplier.
