To be Australia’s most respected equipment fabrication company operating in selected target markets delivering unmatched value, confidence and quality.
Established in 1975, from a small workshop in Penshurst, Victoria. Thornton Engineering has gradually grown into an industry leader in steel fabrication. Proud family oriented history, Thornton continues to demonstrate the same philosophies from it’s early years.
Becoming Geelong based in 1999, enabled Thornton Engineering to grow from more than just agricultural work. Further expansion followed in 2003 with the introduction of a state of the art fabrication work shop, Beamline #1. This took advantage of a new approach to structural steel fabrication employing in-line lean manufacturing techniques. Following its success, Thornton finished construction of Beamline #2 in 2007, further increasing Thornton’s capacity. In 2015 Thornton Engineering completed construction of its Vessel Shop diversifying Thornton in the steel fabrication industry.
