  • Responsiveness to customers needs

  • The best available technology

  • A comprehensive service

  • Consistent quality




We are a family business, and have been for fifty years. David Batchen founded the business in 1965 to provide maintenance services to the chemical and LPG industries in Australia, with his sole employee a tradesman by the name of Doug Burdon. Doug worked for David for over twenty years, and in the process began one of many important Batchen traditions: the loyalty, experience, and longevity of our staff.


A business is nothing without its employees, and here at Batchen, we pride ourselves on ours. Our strength lies in the quality of our staff - highly qualified, experienced and skilled tradesmen; mechanical, chemical, electronic and manufacturing engineers. A diversity of experience on call for you, each one committed to meeting your needs in the most effective manner possible.

Modern generation of Batchen engineers

Since 1991, the business has been managed by James, David's son. Recently, two of James' sons have come on staff, marking a third generation of Batchen engineers. Since our small beginnings in 1965, much has changed, and much will continue to change. We are, and always have been, a forward-looking institution. It's all in our tagline: a tradition of excellence and innovation.


We look forward to hearing how we can meet your needs. You can let us know by contacting us here.
