Wilson & Gilkes

Wilson & Gilkes was established in 1945 by Mr Alex Wilson and Mr Eric Gilkes. The company manufactured a broad range of photographic equipment which gave the company its precision and quality culture.

Today, Wilson and Gilkes is recognised as one of Australia’s leading sheet metal fabricators. Our engineers and industrial designers can review your component or product to identify cost saving or efficiency improvements.

Wilson & Gilkes opened their doors in the post WWII economic reconstruction period. The company has seen dramatic manufacturing, economic and social changes during the next 75 years. In those early years it would have been almost impossible to imagine Wilson & Gilkes using automated laser technology to perform complex, precise metal cutting. Even with the assistance of world class manufacturing equipment, Wilson & Gilkes believes in the quality of its people to achieve flexible manufacturing solutions to achieve optimum results for our customers. The company employs qualified staff including, Industrial Designers, Mechanical Engineers, Electricians, Sheetmetal trades, Fitter and machinists, Toolmakers, Powder Coaters and Welders.

Wilson & Gilkes is a truly competitive and flexible manufacturer specialising in sheet metal products and components. In recent years Wilson & Gilkes has been a key supplier to large infrastructure and defence projects. Our team took a basic concept for traffic tunnel fire service metal structures, and helped create a modular system that slashed site installation time.

Wilson & Gilkes is a proud Australian company who prides itself on innovative design, engineering and state of the art manufacturing. We work closely with our component manufacturing business partners. Many of these organisations have reduced their costs and improved their products as a result of the Wilson & Gilkes input.

Our specialty lies in Australian designed and manufactured products including complex customised solutions for a wide selection of industries . Some examples include storage products for SCEC, Audio Visual, Education, Corporate, Server Racks for IT, Custom Enclosures and Digital Signage. Following a client request, Wilson & Gilkes was able to design and patent a secure, lockable server rack mounted enclosure, for sensitive IT hardware.
