MICK AND JUDY TURNER

1954 -Mick Turner moved to Nerang in South East Queensland in his early 20s buying the local service station and set about forging a career in the automotive mechanical repair industry. At the same time he took on distribution rights for the Danarm brand of chainsaws. Mick then bought an Italian Ansaldo tractor and a Diamond Rio truck and diversified into timber snigging and grain haulage. He soon had his own fabrication workshop where he’d specialise in doing whatever it was you needed done.

Over time, Mick’s reputation for ingenuity and his ability to make, fix or improve anything was surpassed only by his business sense. Under Mick’s direction, Turner’s Engineering took on projects ranging from the construction of Gold Coast hotels to the manufacture and standardisation of greyhound track starter boxes and the electric rabbit. In addition to these, Turner’s were engaged to construct front loading barges for the Gold Coast waterways and even designed, built and installed crematorium furnaces. Mick recognised an opportunity in the civil contracting, earthmoving and construction industries.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With his own brand of tenacity, Turner’s Engineering established themselves as a market leader in the manufacture of earthmoving equipment buckets and attachments, the conversion of Caterpillar Landfill compactors into soil compactors, as well as Queensland transport roadworthy inspection and general engineering.

With access to all this equipment came the opportunity to enter the plant hire game and soon to become mining contractors and suppliers of large machinery including Compactors, Dozers and Scrapers.

Maintained by a team of highly skilled plant mechanics, Turner’s Engineering has gained a reputation for supplying the industry with quality machinery backed up with a crew of highly skilled operators ensuring productive outcomes on all civil and mining projects.

The Turner’s Engineering name has become synonymous with quality and value. Turner’s Engineering now supply some of Australia’s largest mines with D10T and D11T bulldozers, 16M and 24M graders, 993K wheel loaders, a range of 775 and 789 Cat off-highway trucks as well as large Hitachi and Komatsu excavators. The scope of their manufacturing capabilities includes a range of excavator and wheel loader attachments spanning from one to 100 tonne. Their newest venture however, is the design, manufacture and final fit-out of premium quality lube truck and water cart bodies / systems for both road trucks and mining trucks alike.

Turners Engineering continues to move forward into the future providing clients with quality equipment backed up with a team of committed professionals that will go above and beyond customers expectations to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved every time.
