Company Overview

Smart Fabrication is a multi-award winning, dynamic engineering and specialist steel fabrication company headquartered in Port Adelaide, South Australia. Operating across two sites, Smart Fabrication services a variety of industries including defence, oil & gas, mining, water, marine and civil and is capable of planning, designing, constructing and installing a wide range of steel and aluminium solutions to these industries.

Smart Fabrication prides itself on building long standing relationships, and believes the only way to do so is to deliver on our promises, time after time. As a company, delivering exceptional client service is one of our strategic goals. We also aim to become operationally excellent and have made significant inroads into this over the last 24 months with the establishment of our specialist pipe spooling facility at the Islington Workshops in Kilburn, South Australia. With 4 overhead cranes (up to 25T in capacity), 3 submerged arc welding machines, an in-house NDT bay and an in-house hydro-static testing bay, this facility provides Smart Fabrication with the ability to deliver in extremely short lead times through improvements in material handling and efficiency.

With a large emphasis on continuous improvement in all areas of the business, Smart Fabrication also has certified Quality, OHS and Environmental Management Systems, in accordance with ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001 respectively. These systems help Smart Fabrication ensure that it delivers quality product, on time, in a safe manner and in a way which minimises our impact on the environment.
