About Hobson Engineering
Hobson Engineering was established in 1935 by Ron Hobson at Alexandria. They started out with a small product range but that didn’t stop the company name being associated with precision and quality. The major lines originated from bicycle axles and roller skates, going on to product aircraft components for aircrafts during World War II.
Hobson have grown significantly from its early roots to now being the largest fastener company in its chosen product range in Australia. They have been able to gain this title through building strong relationships with their suppliers and customers. Now with their head office located at their Eastern Creek purpose built dual warehouse complex, it allows them more storage and capacity for their products and machinery as well as their growing staff complex. Throughout their Australian warehouses, Hobson take pride in ensuring they are fitted with the appropriate safety equipment to ensure they can work efficiently in a safe and productive environment.
From the stakeholders
Hobson were nearing completion of their new warehouse in Beresfield and needed handrails quickly installed to meet the deadline and ensure pedestrian safety was priority upon opening. Within a week of ordering, Area Safe was able to get the handrails delivered and installed. A week later we also required mirrors externally placed for trucks delivering our stock. Our staff can now move around the warehouse, safe from moving forklifts and trucks.
