What is your story?

Behind every great brand is a great story…and TFG have been fortunate to work with many individuals and brewing companies whose stories began with a passion for great beer and a commitment to share it with the world.

TFG started our brewing mechanical installation journey at Matilda Bay back in 1995, then onto The Swan Brewery, and in early 2000’s, Little Creatures in Fremantle and Geelong. The culture and vibe installing at these iconic establishments is aligned with TFG’s passion for developing relationships and working with others who truly show care in their organisations and value their people.

TFG has worked with some well respected and recognisable brands in the brewing industry over the past 25 years. We ventured across the Tasman to Boags Brewery in Launceston and back to the mainland to mechanically install Bluetongue Brewery in Newcastle.

TFG has forged strong relationships with Lion and Coopers and completed major upgrades at their respective breweries in the last 15 years. More recently we have been excited to install several breweries in the Craft Brewing industry and have enjoyed the independent journeys of Pirate Life, Balter Brewery and BrewDog.

In October, Justin and Tom were invited and honoured to be speakers at the ASSDA PacRim Stainless Conference on the Gold Coast and presented TFG’s history of mechanically installing breweries within Australia. It was apparently very humourous, informative and of course a little beer was involved!

We are super proud of our collective wealth of knowledge and our expertise in brewery installations and look forward to being part of many more stories and journeys. Sharing both our challenges and triumphs is real and all part of the narrative that weaves our lives and stories together.

We are ever grateful for our TFG team who are based in Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane and value all who contribute to our own story and to consistently building things that matter.

Next time you are enjoying a cold beer, imagine all the stories that have been “mashed” together to make it real.

TFG’s Austline Fabrications Division

At TFG, as well as our Foodline Division, we also have our Austline Division, aptly named Austline Fabrications. Austline Fabrications specialises in mild and stainless steel, aluminium and exotic alloy fabrication for a wide range of clients in the resources, capabilities/water, food & beverage and commercial industries. Austline also undertakes highly complex fabrications and installations for the food & beverage and pharmaceutical industries supplying specialised components to TFG Group’s Foodline Projects division.

Austline Fabrications has experience in the foodbeveragebrewingdairymining & resourceschemical and water industries across all states of Australia. We are very proud of our ability to provide our clients with the experience and a wealth of knowledge that allows for the successful delivery of metal fabrication projects. 

We have teams of welders and fabricators available, and with over 23 years in the stainless steel & metal fabrication, Austline Fabrications can handle any project involving:

  • Stainless Steel Welding
  • Stainless Steel Fabrication
  • Orbital Welding 
  • Pressure Vessel Fabrication
  • Stainless Steel Tank Fabrication

A recent project completed by Austline Fabrications that utilised many stainless steel welders was a project for Clough Suez. This project saw the fabrication of a 10,000-litre Sulphuric Acid Storage Tank. Our stainless steel welders fabricated the tanks using 316-grade stainless steel which was welded to full penetration, X-Ray standards with various sized 316 pipe and flanges. 

Similarly, a project for Evoqua saw the stainless steel fabrication of 32 header spools to the Queensland Water Authority Standard and Specification. Austline’s stainless steel welders fabricated the 16 X 250 NB Spools and the 16 X 350 NB Spools in stainless steel 316 Schedule 10 Pipework. All 384 X 80 NB Victaulic connections. There is 12 per spool, and they were fabricated using both MIG and TIG welding. The delivery was scheduled and on time and met all QA and safety requirements. Our stainless steel welders are proficient in stainless steel fabrication, as demonstrated in this project. 

Austline Fabrications ensures we deliver high-quality fabrication from one-off pieces to full turnkey projects for mechanical and processing systems.

Using stainless steel to weld with maintains Austline Fabrications high standards and quality assurance. Stainless steel is highly sanitary, making it perfect for installation in various food, beverage, dairy and pharmaceutical industries. Austline Fabrication has used sanitary stainless steel welding for Process Partners, where we fabricated and installed pasteuriser skids. Naturally, this environment must be kept sterile, and that is why stainless steel fabrication by TFG Austline was engaged. This project was also delivered with a tight schedule and on time. From receipt of drawings and equipment, the skids were delivered to site within a six-week timeframe. The skids arrived fully assembled, and this enabled the connection on-site to minimise installation and testing time at the Wetherill Park Dairy.

In conclusion, TFG’s Austline Fabrications sector allows for high-quality stainless steel welding and stainless steel fabrication. It is also sanitary, which enables us to work in human-grade environments and even sterile pharmaceutical environments. TFG Austline Fabrications is proud of their hard work and commitment to get the job done right every time through careful planning and quality stainless steel welding & fabrication.
