J&S ENGINEERING was established almost 30 years ago by John Armstrong to provide off-site reclamation of mining equipment and the manufacture of drill consumables. The company now boasts one of the largest integrated heavy engineering capabilities on the east coast of Australia.
Taking a holistic approach to off-site repairs and re-manufacturing, all company processes are completed at the J&S facilities, including stripping, inspection, modifications, welding, stress relieving, machining, blasting and painting. Typical re-manufacturing includes buckets, dipper handles, undercarriages, car bodies and truck trays.
With a dedicated machine shop that has continued to increase capacity and capability, J&S Engineering can now re-manufacture most types of mining machinery. Examples include walking cams and cam frames; drill, dozer, shovel and excavator undercarriages; dipper handles and saddle blocks; winch drums; dozer blades; dragline sheaves; and pins, shafts and bushes.
As one of the few local family owned manufacturing companies surviving in the Hunter Valley, John has provided local support in many ways. These include employment of apprentices and tradesmen, community fundraising and charity work, and of course, mining and industrial clients throughout the Hunter Valley and State.
John recognises that being a good corporate citizen requires technical excellence, integrity, innovation, growth and local engagement with all stakeholders and in particular, local community support.
