company profile
  Eglinton Engineering began in 1971, with a contract for the manufacture of valve actuators for a ship being constructed in the Whyalla shipyards. Based on the high-quality standards of its founder, Bob Eglinton, the business grew over time to take in a broad base of industries and varying materials. Today Eglinton Engineering is in the hands of Bob's sons, David and Ian, who maintain the business's values of professionalism with a personal touch.

"We've built a really good relationship with Eglinton's over more than 30 years. They go out of their way and we've never had a 'no, the job can't be done', even when there've been really quick turnarounds. They've got a lot of experience and high levels of technical skills."
