Supplying to industry for almost a century

AUSTRALIAN-based heat exchanger, pressure vessel and process equipment manufacturer W.E. Smith Engineering is celebrating its 90th year in business.
Starting in Sydney in 1922 before relocating to Coffs Harbour in 1969, the company serves customers in both domestic and international markets.
Within its archives are records spanning many decades for equipment installed and serviced within power stations, minerals processing plants, oil and gas facilities, and petrochemical and renewable energy projects. W.E. Smith general manager Steve Gothard said the success and growth of the company was due to a talented and reliable workforce.
“The experience of this company and its employees represents many hundreds of years of combined service with several key personnel having worked continuously with the firm for over 30 years,” he said. Mr Gothard explained that the company had a solid customer base for new and refurbished equipment and was contracted to supply many global engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) projects and other major projects while experiencing a steady growth in site services and installations.
“Having our clients regularly come to us asking us to be more than just a supplier of equipment, it was a natural progression to address the whole-of-life cost of the equipment [that] we design and manufacture so well,” Mr Gothard said.
W.E. Smith Engineering deals with major global EPC companies and engineering houses seeking design specification, installation, commissioning and support throughout the life of a project.
