Company Profile

The Algon name has existed for over 20 years starting at rented facilities in Islington. The success of the company has lead to the purpose built 3000m2 two bay workshop at Arunga Drive Beresfield in late 2000.

The current facility has enabled the company's capacity to expand from one project manager and one workshop manager with a single workshop foreman to five project managers, two workshop managers and two workshop foremen.  They manage a labour team of over 35 people ranging from apprentices to trade qualified boilermakers who have more than ten years experience in the industry. Weekly throughput is highly dependent on member type; however, expect from 75 to 115 tonnes per week.

The Algon name prides itself on employer loyalty. The current high proportion of full time employed boilermakers and four apprentices are testament of this loyalty and its intention to expand and remain a dominant competitor in the fabrication industry.

To address the labour shortfall experienced from 2003 the company has implemented a Junior Development Program in conjunction with the specialist Metal Fabrication and Welding course under the New Apprenticeship System. This reinforces the company’s dedication to its future stability and loyalty to the local employment market.

Cutting capacities includes a cold band saw and for plates and a computer controlled oxy profile with up to four heads. Angles and plates are predominantly cut on one off three shear/punch machines.

Within this facility the company has gained experience with all types of fabrication work from simple heavy portal frame buildings to light framed architectural trusses constructed from pipe sections.

In recent years the company has acknowledged the benefits providing its own surface preparation and painting to achieve an increase in service, time efficiency and cost competitiveness.

In September 2008, the company relocated to its new larger facility at Pippita Close, Beresfield. This fabrication ‘estate’ comprises of two single bay 4200m2 workshops. One of which is dedicated to painting with a modern7 .5m wide x 5m high x 20m long auto recovery blast chamber for surface preparation. Five large extraction filter fans are located along the eastern wall to specialise the remainder of the workshop for painting and thereafter for ‘drying storage’ before being moved outside for site delivery. The second western workhop has two-off 12.5tonne overhead cranes and two-off 5 tonne wall cranes each with a five metre internal reach that run the full length of the building.

Furthermore, to modernise, the company has purchased a late model ‘beam line’ machine controlled from a central computer that will measure, mitre cut to length, drill both vertically and horizontally, stamp designation marks and mark all cleat locations in one pass operation.
