The Eilbeck family have engineering in their blood, going back four generations to the first Tom Eilbeck, who arrived in Western Australia in 1892 from Cumberland England.
He was one of the first graduates of the University of Western Australia. In 1907 Tom Eilbeck went on to become the Founder of T. Eilbeck and Son Limited, later becoming a distinguished businessman, not only recognised for his excellence in engineering but also for his political and business influence.
Today, current Managing Director of Eilbeck Cranes, Tom Eilbeck grandson of founder shares not only the same name but possesses an equal drive for engineering excellence and innovation. Traditional family values such as hard work and determination are not used as punch lines but rather have been foundation blocks in the history of this family’s enterprise - Eilbeck Cranes.
These same core values are evident in the fourth generation, as Charlie Eilbeck, Toms son leads the Eilbeck business in a full loop, and is operating and growing a stand alone division focused on CNC machining, fabrication, refurbishment and engineering solutions as it did in the 1960’s.
