What is your story?

Behind every great brand is a great story…and TFG have been fortunate to work with many individuals and brewing companies whose stories began with a passion for great beer and a commitment to share it with the world.

TFG started our brewing mechanical installation journey at Matilda Bay back in 1995, then onto The Swan Brewery, and in early 2000’s, Little Creatures in Fremantle and Geelong. The culture and vibe installing at these iconic establishments is aligned with TFG’s passion for developing relationships and working with others who truly show care in their organisations and value their people.

TFG has worked with some well respected and recognisable brands in the brewing industry over the past 25 years. We ventured across the Tasman to Boags Brewery in Launceston and back to the mainland to mechanically install Bluetongue Brewery in Newcastle.

TFG has forged strong relationships with Lion and Coopers and completed major upgrades at their respective breweries in the last 15 years. More recently we have been excited to install several breweries in the Craft Brewing industry and have enjoyed the independent journeys of Pirate Life, Balter Brewery and BrewDog.

In October, Justin and Tom were invited and honoured to be speakers at the ASSDA PacRim Stainless Conference on the Gold Coast and presented TFG’s history of mechanically installing breweries within Australia. It was apparently very humourous, informative and of course a little beer was involved!

We are super proud of our collective wealth of knowledge and our expertise in brewery installations and look forward to being part of many more stories and journeys. Sharing both our challenges and triumphs is real and all part of the narrative that weaves our lives and stories together.

We are ever grateful for our TFG team who are based in Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane and value all who contribute to our own story and to consistently building things that matter.

Next time you are enjoying a cold beer, imagine all the stories that have been “mashed” together to make it real.

Stainless Steel Launder Fabrication

Rio Tinto’s $2.6 billion Amrun project in Queensland is nearly one third complete, with bauxite shipments on track to begin during the first quarter of 2019. Civmec was awarded $160 million of contracts to construct a processing facility including bauxite beneficiation plant and associated water, electrical and lighting systems. Civmec’s CEO, Patrick Tallon said the contracts had created jobs and provided a boost to Australia’s economy. Austline Fabrications is proud to be awarded the stainless steel launder fabrication for this project and are committed to quality assurance by adhering to ISO 9001 coupled with providing ASSDA accredited fabricators.

Case Study – Stainless Steel Ducting – Curtin University




YEAR: 2016


NEW TECHNOLOGY    Building 304 will provide custom research facilities dedicated to the Centre for Crop and Disease. Situated on the eastern side of Curtin’s Bentley campus; the four-story building will feature three levels of highly specialised laboratories. SCOPE OF WORKS Austline Fabrications was awarded the contract to supply, fabricate and install all associated stainless steel ductwork and decontamination lines for the custom research facilities by lead contractor Envar Group. Austline successfully designed, fabricated and installed all deliverables. Austline also assisted with final testing before the handover to the client. PRE-WORKS & COMPETITIVE SOLUTIONS   A comprehensive pre site measure to existing floor and ceiling penetrations allowed Austline to customise and pre fabricate with precision in our Perth based factory. The pre-fabricated lobster back elbows, t- junctions and all spooling were then installed on site by experienced tradesmen with specialised cushion head install engaging purge welding techniques. Working with Envar on the design of the cushion head allowed for cost effective fabrication. Austline’s opportunity to maximise off site fabrication of large bore spools was integral in the success of the projects timeline. QUALITY – SANITARY GRADE   This facility demanded each environment within the building to have a specific controlled atmosphere. The ductwork required Austline fabricators and installers to utilise sanitary grade purge welding to all stainless steel spools and fabricated items to ensure air purification of individual rooms and spaces in the laboratory. Passivation of all welds also ensured successful final testing of the system. This dedicated research building provides truly world-class contemporary facilities and will be the catalyst in attracting globally recognised crop and disease management scholars to Curtin University.
