A. Noble & Son Ltd.
Nobles is Australia’s leading specialist provider of lifting & rigging equipment, technical services and engineering design for complete solutions to your heaviest and most complex lifting requirements.
With over 100 years of experience, Nobles can provide a complete lifting product and service solution comprising engineering design, product selection and supply, technical service, manufacture, inspection, testing, repair, training and project management.
With locations across all mainland states of Australia and the Northern Territory, Nobles supplies and services geographically dispersed and highly demanding industries, such as mining, oil & gas, cranes & construction, shipping & transport, heavy industry & manufacturing, defence, utilities and ports.
State based warehousing and production centres carry substantial stock and testing facilities, allowing Nobles to undertake the manufacture and testing of products. These nationwide locations provide significant warehousing and distribution capabilities, so we can support an extensive network of regionally based service centres.
Nobles can partner with you to provide a full service lifting solution, working alongside you from the initial concept and design stage to the fabrication or supply of materials to overseeing the final lift, saving you time and money. We have recently invested significantly in our customer and technical service teams to ensure we provide a prompt and reliable level of service.
Proudly Australian owned and operated, Nobles employs approximately 200 staff across 14 locations nationwide, so you can rest assured that you will be serviced by someone local who understands your business. And, every product and service we supply is backed up by our Customer Promise guarantee.
We operate under externally certified and audited systems for quality, occupational health and safety and environmental management in accordance with Australian and International Standards (AS/NZS ISO 9001, AS/NZS 4801 and AS/NZS ISO 14001).
Partnering with world-class manufacturers and brands as well as directly sourcing quality product from Asia, Nobles ensures the product lines we stock are extensively quality tested for compliance with both Australian and International Standards. We work closely with our local and international manufacturers to provide strict safety and quality standards, ensuring we offer superior functionality, improved safety, ease of use and greater durability and service.
