Austbreck represents one of the most innovative and technologically advanced manufacturers for the rail industry. With a modern factory and head office located in Melbourne Australia.
Austbreck commenced manufacturing Pantographs in Australia in the late 1970’s. A secondary facility was subsequently established in Sydney in 2000 to cater for our eastern seaboard clients and recently Industrial power transfer systems have been introduced to our product range.
Austbreck was a subsidiary of the successful privately owned United Kingdom based Fandstan Electric Company Limited which boasts sister companies in the UK, USA, Germany, Netherlands, France, Poland and Taiwan. Since June 2014 Fandstan Electric Group was acquired by Wabtec Corporation USA, with 12,500 employees worldwide and a growing presence in Australia with sister companies, Wabtec Australia, Wabtec Control Systems and FIP Brakes. This now creates more synergies and opportunities to offer our customers and prospective clientele more world class products and services.
At the heart of Austbreck is a dedicated, highly motivated and qualified workforce. Our core skills and experience form the basis of a capability to deliver tailored solutions to customer requirements, drawing as it does on the combined experience of individuals with backgrounds in rail and industrial products.
With many long standing staff, this year we are proud to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of a number of our loyal and dedicated colleagues. A special plaque commemorates this wonderful achievement and is proudly on display in the Austbreck Melbourne foyer.
With Maintenance Through Life Support contracts with tenures up to 30 years, Austbreck has built a very stable platform for continued growth to service our market leading position with Pantographs and synergise this to other Fandstan and Wabtec OEM Products and Services.
Austbreck delivers its engineering capability in conjunction with our technical support. This structure has been developed to provide the skills, experience, manpower and resources to enable us to provide solutions that fulfil the requirements of our customers.
We look forward to being of service to you and your company.
