For more than 50 years Austin Engineering has been providing extensive product, service and support to clients around the world.

Austin Engineering commenced in Brisbane, Australia in 1982 and has since expanded through a combination of organic growth and selected acquisitions, designing and manufacturing equipment for clients globally in the surface and underground mining sector.

Austin employs over 2000 people globally including engineering designers, specialist steel fabricators and tradespeople, in 10 offices and manufacturing centres in the world’s mining markets. 

From 2003 Austin acquired Western Australia Metals, Western Technology Services in Casper US, Conyment and Serigruit in Chile, Pilbara Hire Group and Phillips Engineering in Western Australia.

In 2012 the company went on to acquire V&V Calama in Chile, Petroaceros SAC in Lima Peru and COR Cooling in QLD, NSW and SA, later selling COR Cooling in 2016, constantly evolving and expanding to become the globally recognised company they are today.

“We are very excited about the product developments we have in the pipeline,” said David Pichanick, Global Manager, Market Development and Innovation.

“We have just released a new dump tray – Austin ULTIMA and the Austin Two Piece Excavator Bucket – both products have exclusive IP developed by Austin and have patents pending,” David added.

Providing unique products, engineered to meet and exceed the challenges of the global mining sector, speciality designs that can be infinitely modified to meet local operating and environmental conditions and components that are fit for purpose, Austin Engineering strive to be at the top of their game.

“Austin’s point of difference is that we custom engineer every product that we manufacture to provide unique solutions for our clients,” said David. 

“Our products provide the lowest cost per tonne and maximise profitability for our clients.”

As the mining industry grows and expands, so do companies like Austin Engineering even now after 50 years of reliable and global service. 

Happy 50 years Austin Engineering!
