About Us

Redfern Flinn Lifting Equipment has been supporting businesses of all sizes and across all industries with their lifting requirements, since its inception in Melbourne in 1977.

In 2010, Redfern Flinn expanded into Sydney and Newcastle, and all three Redfern Flinn offices can assist our customers with the design, supply, installation and servicing of their lifting equipment, ensuring it is working safely and efficiently for continued use.

Additionally, Redfern Flinn acquired the Austin Crane service business in Melbourne in 2014.

Given our experience, we pride ourselves on our ability to provide in-house design and engineering, so if you have a specific or difficult lifting requirement, we can design a solution that meets your scope, budget and timeframe.

All of our design, engineering, regular servicing and crane inspection services are undertaken in accordance with Australian Standards.

We supply new lifting equipment – from loose lifting items (slings, chains, shackles) to electric chain and wire rope hoists, to jibs, monorails, workstation cranes and complete overhead cranes (the structure, crane and hoist), and everything in between.

Our electric chain hoists and light crane systems are designed and manufactured in Switzerland by GIS, and our wire rope hoists and overhead crane kits are designed and manufactured in Spain by GH Cranes.

Additionally our vacuum lifting equipment solutions are designed and manufactured by both GIS (in Switzerland) and Palamatic (in the UK); our portable aluminium gantry cranes are designed and manufactured by Feltes in Germany; and GEDA design and manufacture our building and construction hoists and lifting equipment in Germany.

We have supplied lifting solutions throughout Australia, and our customers straddle all industries – food production, manufacturing – metals, chemical, glass, steel, concrete; as well as mining, utilities, infrastructure projects, transport, entertainment, building and construction, and aerospace.

In addition to in-house design, engineering and supply of new lifting equipment, we support our customers with regular servicing and crane inspection services in accordance with Australian Standards.

We also provide crane operator competency training for employees who need to know how to safely operate their companies’ lifting equipment.

Our objective is to ensure our customers’ lifting equipment is working safely and efficiently, and their production is maximised and therefore downtime is minimised, as the lifting equipment they use is often critical to the goods and services they produce, or the lifting activities they undertake.

We work with businesses (large and small) who understand the importance of regular service and maintenance of their lifting equipment, and given the importance of maximising production uptime, we can assist with 24 x 7 breakdown support, as well as engineering services – Design Work Period (DWP) assessments, Major Inspections and Third Party Inspections, as per Australian Standards AS 2550.1.
