From the back of an EJ Holden to a national powerhouse providing quality equipment to the Australian Industry, the journey of Crommelins Machinery is a testament to innovation, tenacity, and an unwavering commitment to quality. As we celebrate our 65th year, it’s a fitting time to reflect on our rich history, the legacy of our founder, Terry Crommelin, and our enduring commitment to our customers.

In 1958, Terry Crommelin embarked on a journey that would forever change the Australian construction landscape. With the Sawmaster Bench Saw in tow, he launched T.W. Crommelin & Co. from his Holden station wagon, visiting building sites throughout Western Australia. His approach was simple: build relationships and offer quality products. This ethos saw the company rapidly expand, laying a foundation of reliability and trust within the Hire and Rental industry.

Over the decades, Crommelins Machinery has always been at the forefront of innovation. Our commitment to understanding customer needs and introducing products that meet industry demands has been unwavering. All our products undergo rigorous testing and constant reassessment to ensure they outperform and stand up to the challenges of the Australian market.

Our points of difference, which have been instrumental in setting us apart, are:

  • Preferred Supplier to the Hire Industry: Over our long history, Crommelins Machinery has laid a foundation of reliability and trust within the Hire and Rental industry.
  • Australian Owned, Est. in 1958: We are proud to be Australian owned and operated. We have a strong awareness of Australian geographic, government, business, product and work site requirements and standards.
  • Quality Products: We respect the reputation of the Crommelins Machinery brand, a trust built with customers over more than 65 years. Improvements and innovations are important to us but not at the risk of quality. Only products that stand up to our rigorous testing process will receive our tick of approval.
  • New Products, Innovative Technology: Crommelins Machinery is invested in continuously improving our existing products and expanding our range with new product innovations. Although we are focused on the needs of our Australian clientele, we accept nothing less than world’s best practice.
  • Reliable Service: When you’ve purchased a product, Crommelins Machinery will go the extra mile to assist you when you need parts, service or backup support.
  • Custom Products: We appreciate each of our customers has unique requirements which is why we offer a range of customisations for the vast majority of our products.

As we look to the future, our commitment to innovation remains steadfast. CEO Kevin Wilson captures our ethos best: “We have a responsibility to Terry Crommelin to carry on his legacy. We’ll build on his foundation of entrepreneurship, innovation, and quality products. Our focus remains on customer service, bringing new products to market, and providing value for our customers.”

In celebrating our 65 years, we’d like to extend our deepest gratitude to our current and past staff, customers, suppliers, supporters, and the Crommelin family. Without their unwavering support, dedication, and belief in our vision, the journey of the last 65 years would not have been possible.

Here’s to the past 65 years and to the future of excellence, innovation, and trust!
