The Eilbeck family have engineering in their blood, going back four generations to the first Tom Eilbeck, who arrived in Western Australia in 1892 from Cumberland England. He was one of the first graduates of the University of Western Australia. In 1907 Tom Eilbeck went on to become the founder of T. Eilbeck and Son Limited, later becoming a distinguished businessman, not only recognised for his excellence in engineering but also for his political and business influence.
Today, current Managing Director of Eilbeck Cranes, Tom Eilbeck grandson of founder shares not only the same name but possesses an equal drive for engineering excellence and innovation. Traditional family values such as hard work and determination are not used as punch lines but rather have been foundation blocks in the history of this family’s enterprise - Eilbeck Cranes. Today Eilbeck Cranes and Heavy Machining is proud to run seven manufacturing plants in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, and Mackay, with many more service outlets spread throughout Australia.
Eilbeck Cranes has made its mark both nationally and internationally, as the only organisation to provide a serious challenge to the traditional European and Asian domination within the Crane Industry. Indeed, Eilbeck Cranes towers over the Australian market place with a winning share of the local market, and is proud to be recognised a serious contender on the international scale.
The Eilbeck Cranes story has all the ingredients to be regarded as Australia’s greatest crane company; from its history, a devoted sales team, an innovative engineering team, a strong management team, and precision shop floor fabrication team, they all share the same core values.
