Tefco Engineering has been manufacturing since 1991, originally established for the design and manufacture of Bearing Housings, machining of castings and other general engineering activities.
In more recent times we have utilised the 40 years of conveyor component design and construction experience of our senior management and forged a very successful design and manufacturing business for Conveyor Pulleys, Bogies & Wheel sets, Wire Rope Sheaves and Winches.
Over these last few years we have also invested many millions of dollars in state of the art CNC machining capacity in a 1,800M² machine shop at West Gosford supported by six overhead cranes and in-house stress relieving, shot- blasting and painting facilities which has broadened our capabilities to offer larger contract CNC machining capacity to complement our traditional business.
The extensive re-equipment program has established one of the most modern machining facilities in the world. This will be enhanced further when we complete our new 1780M² factory down our road at 11 Gibbens during the coming year. This new facility will house our General Fabrication, Shotblasting, Painting and Assembly functions.
You will see below we have the knowledge and equipment to do a large variety of complex CNC machining work & our close relationships with various foundries & forges ensure suitable materials are available in a timely manner. Our pricing is very competitive, and we offer a personalised prompt estimating service.
We are a wholly Australian owned Company, managed by the owner and a group of dedicated professional staff. We employ 62 people with 32 tradesmen, 19 process workers and 11 Engineering, Management & support staff. The Tefco Group turnover in 2008-09 was over $23 million & our 2009-10 Group turnover will exceed that. Our rapid growth is largely a result of repeat orders from customers who appreciate our engineering excellence and customer focus.

In the last 12 months Tefco have been awarded orders for more than 1000 pulleys, over 150 sheaves, dozens of wheel and bogie sets and many winches from clients such as BHP Billiton Iron Ore, Xstrata, Argyle (Rio Tinto), NCIG, Newcrest, Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal, GEMCO, Abbot Point Coal Terminal, CQPA Gladstone Coal Terminal, Geraldton Port Authority, Krupp, Sandvik, Port Waratah Coal Services, TRUenergy, Loy Yang Power, Sedgman, Tenova plus numerous export projects to Chile, China, Russia, Indonesia & Philippines.
We are also very active providing contract machining & manufacturing services for a number of industries for such companies as Voith, FALK, Onga, FAG, SKF and many others. We manufacture specialised bearing housings with casting masses anywhere between 1Kg to 8Tonne mill housings.
Tefco employs two Mechanical Engineers with solid modelling, CAD and Finite Element Analysis capability to assist with component design plus jig and fixture design for machining your engineered components.
QUALITY ASSURANCE & MANUFACTURING CONTROLS
Manufacture is done under our Quality Assurance system that conforms to the requirements of ISO9001
>Our normal protocol is to provide Inspection and Test Plans (ITP’s) for all machined components
>Because we recognise the fact that the job is not finished until the paperwork is complete we have commissioned
>a very impressive material traceability, manufacturing dimension data capture and document control software packag
>that enables us to produce digital MDR’s at the date of despatch.
All despatch dates are controlled by our manufacturing factory plan software that shows programmed timing of every function of every part in real time so we can micro manage your project deliveries and offer prompt on-time delivery
