Boomerang Engineering started building and repairing Mining and Transport equipment in 1963.
It steadily grew from a two man operation and before too long found itself riding the mining boom that lasted well into the 1970’s. During this time staff members increased to over 100 and a second facility was established in the suburb of Belmont Western Australia, which the company still operates from today.
With Perth, Western Australia, being a long way from almost everywhere, quite often problems have to be solved in house. This has resulted in many innovative products, most of which we hold Patent pending or Design Patents on. Examples being: – fully load sharing cable suspensions (suitable for low loaders to 350 tonne), a cantilever rope door assy for side tippers, axles with detachable stubs to 45 tonnes, end tippers to 110 tonnes.
Our manufacturing has grown to also include our own fifth wheels and heavy duty trailer couplings. These days our products can be found from Africa to South East Asia and of course throughout Australia.
Boomerang Engineering is now regarded as one of the premier suppliers in Australia. Our clientele reads like a who’s who of the mining and transport industry, a large proportion of which, are repeat customers. Our “can do” and innovative approach that has carried us through from inception continues to prevail today.
The company is still owned and operated by one of the original families that founded Boomerang all those years ago.
“We have a strong commitment to our customers and are continually upgrading our equipment, manufacturing and business systems to ensure that we remain innovative and at the cutting edge of our profession” says Marco De Filippis, Managing Director of Boomerang Engineering, “We are looking forward to an ongoing and controlled growth into overseas markets and an even stronger consolidation here in Australia. We are all looking forward to the years ahead.”
