Baker & Provan Pty Ltd
Baker & Provan is a heavy engineering workshop in Sydney manufacturing for Defence and industry, as well as servicing mechanical and hydraulic equipment on RAN ships on east and west coast since 1989.
Baker & Provan is a family-owned, Australian engineering company established by two ex-service men, Arthur Baker and Don Provan in 1946. The company has grown to now provide substantial manufacturing and on-site service capability including mechanical design, manufacturing and on-site services to Defence and industry in fitting, fabrication and machining including onsite servicing of mechanical and hydraulic equipment for the Royal Australian Navy. Baker & Provan entered the Defence market in 1989 with the design and manufacture of the slewing arm boat davits for the FFG’s and continues to provide through-life support for many other mechanical and hydraulic systems on RAN ships as the OEM or as the in-country service agent. Defence work now represents over 40% of company turnover with the balance in rail, mining, heavy industry and infrastructure.
For over 30 years, Baker & Provan has designed, manufactured, serviced and tested a range of RAN mechanical equipment including cranes, boat davits, winches, capstans, doors, hatches and fin stabilisers. We have key relationships with a range of equipment OEMs and provide site-based services to the RAN at Garden Island and Waterhen in Sydney, as well as Henderson,WA. We also have an operation in Cooma, NSW, to support the hydro and local industry.
Baker & Provan has a large workshop in western Sydney equipped with 18 small to very large CNC machines and large fabrication and fitting capability. We employ 85 people dedicated to providing quality engineering solutions.
Baker & Provan is accredited to ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 45001 (safety) AS/NZS ISO 3834.2 (fusion welding), DISP entry level (Level 1 in process), Lloyds Approved Supplier for servicing lifting equipment and NATA approved to ISO/IEC 17020 Type C for the inspection of lifting equipment.
We are expanding our role as a Defence manufacturer and service provider seeking to support Defence primes in manufacturing for Australian Defence projects as well as partner with larger international Defence providers for local support and service requirements. Baker & Provan is currently providing davits to the NZ Navy and is well positioned to support a range of international suppliers for components required under the SEA 5000 and LAND 400 Phase 3 programmes.
