We’re a nation of innovators. From the Hills Hoist to the Polymer Banknote, finding a better way is in our DNA.
The first decade
Necessity was the mother of invention from the time Geographe was founded in 1968. A response to reports of failing equipment and parts in heavy machinery, we began manufacturing replacements and repairing parts in a humble backyard workshop in Busselton, Western Australia. As word spread through the mineral sands and coal mining sectors, the business grew and so did our scope of work.
Creating better than original parts
Through the following decade, Geographe’s team expanded to include a dedicated Draftsman and Metallurgist to further improve the quality of our parts. These parts were branded with the now familiar red, chuck jaw logo.
Success through diversity
During the 1980’s and 90’s, Geographe was involved with a diverse scope of project work including innovations in Oil & Gas, Naval, Transport, Mining and Aerospace. Our engineering department has continued to grow throughout the decades, highly skilled in state-of-the-art design and drafting software’s to provide innovations for our broad range of clients.
