Our History

This third generation family business forged their mark in the local community and were the first Engineering company on the South Coast to manufacture Sugarcane trailers for the local farmers. With generations of skill, knowledge and expertise the Allan Family remain respected legends in this community up until today.

About Us

In June 2010, when the Allan family decided it was time to hand over the reins of the business, Ashley Alborough was the obvious choice having worked with all 3 generations of the Allan family, starting when he was just a young schoolboy. Ashley gained an invaluable wealth of experience over the years and is now the new generation of this business. Ashley has the same values at the core of his ethics and continues to hold the company’s name in high regard through continued quality workmanship and the respect for long standing customer relationships.

Recent Projects

Allan & Son currently has a fully operational machine shop which includes a large on-site stock holding of special steels, non-ferrous metals, chrome shafting and key steels allowing for quicker manufacturing turnaround times.

Our Fabrication section is growing with improved machinery allowing us to offer a wider range of in-house fabrication services. Ashley holds a wide skill set in welding and fabrication, including cast-iron and aluminium welding.
