From its humble beginnings in 1958 working from a small shed in Cremorne St Richmond, Richmond Engineering (trading as Richmond Wheel & Castor) has certainly come a long way.
The company celebrated its 50th anniversary on October 24 this year and had every reason to celebrate.
Founded by Frank Winslow, the first of three generations of Winslow’s, the company began predominantly as a manufacturer of steel fabrications for buildings.
However after purchasing a materials handling manufacturer in 1961, the business began manufacturing hydraulic lifting equipment.
This change was based on Frank’s belief that he could develop these products into an extremely profitable business enterprise. He was correct.
From this decision came the beginning of a transformation for Richmond Wheel and Castors, from a steel fabricator into a symbol of Australian Materials Handling.
Richmond is now recognised for its quality product ranges and flexibility and skill in solving special Materials Handling needs from design to manufacture.
The company continues to look to the future for opportunities and to build upon its strengths as a global manufacturing company in perpetual motion.
