About our company

Originally founded by business partners Gary Tonkin and Kim Black under the trading name of Integrated Maintenance Systems or IMS. In 2006 IMS purchased Shearwater Engineering, a very well respected stainless steel and aluminium fabrication company.  Shearwater has since evolved and expanded to a massive range of products and services including residential needs like pool fencing and balustrade, to commercial requirements such as dairy processing equipment, commercial kitchens and accessibility needs like handrails and grabrails.

We take true pride in our work and our own Lee Black has even been awarded for his artistic metalwork and metal sculpture designs which are on display in the Main street of Taree.

While we are based in Taree NSW, we serve a nationwide client base and our team regularly travel to complete projects for our clients. We have a can do attitude and we are always eager to take on new projects and clients from anywhere. Just give us a call or drop us an email today!

In 2008 IMS Also acquired Oz-Craft Aluminium, with a similar customer base to Shearwater Engineering, Oz-Craft serve Forster Tuncurry, Pacific Palms, and the Great Lakes Region.
