Company History

RCR Tomlinson Ltd was formed by the December 1997 merger of RCR Engineering Ltd and Centurion Industries Limited, both of which were publicly listed companies. As a result of the merger, RCR Engineering Ltd emerged as the ultimate parent company and changed its name to RCR Tomlinson Ltd.

RCR Engineering Ltd was established in Western Australia in 1979 to provide diversified fabrication and machining services to industry in the south-west region of Western Australia. The company grew steadily, strengthening its resources and skills base by participating in major regional project developments.

Centurion Industries Limited was incorporated in Western Australia in 1985 to acquire the business, associated assets and property of Clyde Industries Limited's Welshpool site. This business traded under the name Tomlinson, the origins of which date back to 1892. Tomlinson was one of the oldest engineering companies in Australia; boilers manufactured under this name continue to be held in extremely high regard throughout the country.

Tomlinson had eight specialist divisions, with three factory sites in the Perth metropolitan area and sales and service outlets in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide.

Following its acquisition of the Tomlinson business, Centurion Industries continued to manufacture, sell and service a comprehensive range of high quality boilers, in addition to providing services to its customers in the mining and oil and gas industries.

Since the merger of RCR Engineering Ltd and Centurion Industries Limited, RCR Tomlinson Ltd's growth has been both substantial and sustained. The Company is now one of Western Australia 's leading multi-disciplinary engineering firms, supplying a diverse range of products and services, both in Australia and overseas. RCR is also the country's foremost supplier of industrial boilers, with a nationwide support network.

RCR Tomlinson Ltd is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX code: RCR).
