Operations of Heavy Transport Engineering began from humble beginnings in 1996. Our aim was to provide our customers with quality service, whilst maintaining a fast turnaround to the earthmoving, trucking and mining industries.
As we are a 100% family owned and operated South Australian business, we have total control over quality, innovation and problem solving whilst adhering to the strictest of Australian standards and quality controls.
As we have evolved over the past 25 years, our passions have expanded to include advance manufacturing on lean principles. Investing heavily in world class Okuma CNC Lathes and Mills using Japanese technologies, we have been able to rapidly respond to the ever-changing needs of our clients. As a result of this expansion it became apparent that our name did not fully represent all of our capabilities, services and products.
Adelaide Manufacturing and Repairs Complete Solutions was born. Whilst we have changed our name, this does not mean a change in people or management or the way we do business. We still will provide our clients with general engineering services but complemented by the growing need for advanced lean CNC manufacturing.
