Long-proven ser­vice to rail

The Australian Mining Review - - PACIFIC NATIONAL -

VAR­LEY Group is a di­ver­si­fied en­gi­neer­ing and man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pany.

Since its es­tab­lish­ment in 1886, Var­ley has grown its work­force to more than 1000 em­ploy­ees, with op­er­a­tions in all main­land Australian States, plus an ad­di­tional three in the US and two in In­done­sia.

Two ma­jor in­dus­tries ser­viced by the com­pany are rail and spe­cialised ve­hi­cles.

Var­ley’s ONRSR-ac­cred­ited rail di­vi­sion has pro­vided en­gi­neer­ing and main­te­nance to the in­dus­try from its strate­gi­cally-lo­cated fa­cil­i­ties in New­cas­tle since 1984.

It also pro­vides cus­tomer field ser­vice and sup­port for break­down re­pairs, in-field main­te­nance, and wagon re­cov­ery.

Var­ley has a long and suc­cess­ful as­so­ci­a­tion with Pa­cific Na­tional, hav­ing ser­viced its ex­ten­sive rolling stock as­sets and per­formed fleet re­fur­bish­ments since Pa­cific Na­tional’s for­ma­tion in 2002.

The com­pany’s spe­cialised ve­hi­cle di­vi­sion – also known as Var­ley Spe­cialised Ve­hi­cles – designs, man­u­fac­tures and ser­vices a wide range of rail-re­lated ve­hi­cles in­clud­ing rail shunters, road rail ve­hi­cles, in­fra­struc­ture main­te­nance ve­hi­cles, over­head wiring main­te­nance (OMVs), el­e­vated work plat­forms (EWPs) and many other cus­tom ve­hi­cles.

Var­ley has a proven record of com­plet­ing fleet re­fur­bish­ments and work­ing with cus­tomers to achieve favourable out­comes.

With ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence over many decades, Var­ley of­fers a high level of ex­per­tise in rolling stock main­te­nance.

The business is sup­ported by its ex­cel­lent rail fa­cil­i­ties, which pro­mote low cost and timely move­ment of rolling stock.

Its ad­vanced fa­cil­i­ties in Car­ring­ton, New­cas­tle, are well-equipped to hold mul­ti­ple wag­ons on seven rail­roads and in­clude a full-length un­der­cover lo­co­mo­tive pit and wash bay suit­able for 180T lo­co­mo­tives.

As part of its growth strat­egy, Hin­ton En­gi­neer­ing re­cently be­came a part of the Var­ley Group.

A long-es­tab­lished and highly-rep­utable rail business, Hin­ton spe­cialises in the de­sign and man­u­fac­ture of hi-rail and in­fra­struc­ture equip­ment, as well as rail ac­cess cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for all hi-rail equip­ment across mul­ti­ple States.
