Long-proven service to rail


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.
