100 Years of Mascot

100 years is a long time in business and particularly in manufacturing… below we set out some key milestones that have shaped Mascot Engineering and contributed to what we’ve become today.

Whilst we’re proud of the achievements set out below, innovation and the development of solutions remain at the heart of everything we do at Mascot Engineering. Starting life as a foundry near Sydney Airport in Mascot to service the needs of a growing (and hungry) civil, infrastructure and general industry to today, manufacturing the highest quality products that contractors confidently rely on across Australia regardless of project size. We’ve stayed to true to our purpose and will continue to do so for future generations.

We couldn’t have reached our centenary without our people… we’d like to thank both past and present members of the Mascot team (Pit Crew) for enabling us to reach this significant anniversary.
