With over 40 full time staff and a 1800m2 engineering service workshop BFA is capable of responding to any scale job – 24/7

BFA’s engineering services can manufacture and replace one-off parts for faulty plastics machinery, hydraulic cylinders, filtrations systems or industrial pumps and valves. BFA also has capacity and engineering capabilities to cost effectively rebuild entire machines from the ground up. All of this is done under the one roof presenting significant quality control and time advantage to our clients.

Our purpose built 1800m2 engineering service workshop and 40 plus engineering specialists remove the problems associated with the outsourcing of component rebuilds or mechanical

Machinery Relocation

Whether a single machine or a full factory, relocated locally, nationally or internationally, BFA has the capability, experience and the know-how.

The secret to a successful and a quick return to full operations is an understanding of the idiosyncrasies of equipment and taking a systems perspective to the project.

BFA have moved single pieces of equipment through to entire production lines: around the corner, across the country and overseas.

Relocating equipment is not something that should be handled lightly. Having managed every major equipment relocation for the plastics industry over the past 25 years, we have learnt that doing the job right can save a lot of headaches at start up.
