About Us

Since our modest beginnings in Brisbane in the mid 70s, G&O Kert has never lost sight of the importance of great customer relationships.

Over 45 years and 5 owners later, the company has gone from strength to strength. Central to G&O Kert’s success is the “old school” service that our first customers would have experienced. Our personalised and friendly service is in the DNA of the company and is core to our ongoing success. 

Ian Melville, the current owner since 2008, has built the company through the toughest of market conditions. Through a reliable, versatile and reactive approach, we have supported our key clients and maintained relationships that span decades.

Our Approach

Our experience as a member of numerous supply chains has taught us that an ethical and sustainable approach works. Knowing our customer’s business and the competitive advantage that drives their success is all we need to tailor our service for perfect integration.

Our client’s diverse requirements see us manufacturing complex parts and sub-assemblies that, in addition to precision machining, incorporate a range of material and surface treatments and specialised manufacturing processes that we manage through a network of premium Australian suppliers.

We understand that our suppliers are critical to the downstream success of all parties. Long term personal relationships built on trust and reliability underpin the service we are known for.
