C & R Engineering is a second generation owned family business operating since 1989. Ross and Carol Turner originally traded as C & R Crafts producing Gates, Fencing and Floral Art products on Tremaine Ave. In the late 90’s the business moved to Malden St due to the gates and fencing growth and at this point the business name was also changed to C & R Engineering Ltd as it is known today

Nowadays, we specialise in the Commercial market doing Structural Steel, Seismic Strengthening along with Maintenance, Gates and Fencing.

In 2013 Craig and Jaclyn Turner purchased the business from Ross and Carol, with Carol retiring and Ross staying in to support Craig with his knowledge. Tragically on the 16th July 2014 Ross was taken from us, but his expertise and spirit live on in the business and he will always be fondly remembered and treasured by all who worked with him.

Take a look at our photos and you will see a number of products we manufacture. Whether it’s your design or ours we endeavour to make your experience with C&R Engineering an enjoyable one, which will leave you fully satisfied with the end product. If you have a job in mind and you think we can help please don’t hesitate to contact us, we will make it an experience you will enjoy the whole way through, and not to mention you'll love the end product, we guarantee it.


Our vision is to set the bar locally with our customers in terms of service, quality and health and safety standards. We also want to be a known locally as a top employer who values and looks after their staff and families.
