The modern St Marys factory has the capacity to build the entire Plasser range of products, including even the largest machines.

The factory is fully self-contained with minimal dependence on sub-contract work. Virtually all work is integrated within the one complex, uniting several engineering disciplines:

  • Heavy structural steel fabrication
  • Sheet metal fabrication
  • Machining
  • Electrical manufacture and installation
  • Hydraulic and pneumatic installation
  • Hydraulic cylinder manufacture
  • Fitting and assembly
  • Testing and calibration

Numerous machines have been developed and adapted specifically for Australian railways and local conditions for narrow- standard- and broad gauge, as well as special machines for the 610 mm gauge sugar cane railways.
