Our mission is to provide the highest quality aluminium and glazing products and services to our clients.
Here at ALFAB, our client range includes both the general public and manufacturers within the marine, automotive and original equipment industries of Australasia and abroad; including some of the biggest names in marine vessel manufacturing.
Our highly experienced and knowledgeable team is constantly researching and developing the engineering processes to improve our approach to customer service. This commitment to innovation and quality has earned ALFAB its reputation for reliability and excellence.
For more than 60 years, ALFAB (Aust.) Pty Ltd has pioneered the development of window systems and marine glass products for a complete range of marine and vehicular applications. This includes the manufacture and installation of marine windows and boat windscreens for vessels of all shapes and sizes.
Here at ALFAB, our brand is synonymous with quality. This is achieved by using experienced craftsmen and high-grade materials. We have QA procedures at every stage of processing to ensure we build products that will stand the test of time and withstand some of the harshest environments on the planet.
Family owned and operated, ALFAB is based in two convenient locations—Melbourne and Brisbane. We started in aluminium fabrication, which then expanded into the marine and automotive industries. This was through the provision of standard and tailor-made marine glass products, including boat windows, windscreens, hatches, doors and accessories.
Some of the applications for our products include various marine vessels such as sailboats, houseboats and yachts. We also provide our services to automotive vehicles including mobile homes, caravans, trucks, horse floats, emergency vehicles and even earth moving equipment.
The infrastructure at ALFAB’s headquarters makes it possible for our team to achieve a flexible approach to manufacturing, which inevitably maximises the worth that a customer receives from ALFAB products.
At ALFAB, we’re not a ‘one size fits all’ business model. We understand that different applications have different requirements. This inherent company philosophy caters to prototyping and provides the adaptability that is required for a large variety of applications.
Our ability to custom make glass, marine glass and a range of windows and windscreens allows us to supply crafts of 10’ right through to large passenger-carrying high-speed ferries. We also manufacture an extensive range of hinged and sliding doors to suit many applications including houseboats and yachts.
ALFAB’s success story is rooted in the foundations of a flexible holistic approach to manufacturing:
“What’s so unique about the ALFAB brand is when we’re dealing with a customer, we give a customer a choice with variations of how a product can be built for them, which gives the customer the ALFAB engineering advantage.”
Each plant is guided by a strict adherence to quality materials, excellent workmanship and the use of computer-aided manufacturing equipment. Our quality inspections ensure that our finished products conform to specifications, have moving parts that operate correctly and adhere to exacting aesthetics. All aspects of our manufacturing process are to provide you, our customer, with years of reliable service and satisfaction.
In our years of manufacturing, we have become specialists in the production of windows, both fixed and sliding, for all types of marine vessels including houseboats as well as the horse floats and horse truck fraternity, motorhomes, caravans, mobile homes and large-scale earthmoving machinery; such as cranes, commercial forklifts, backhoes, excavators and bulldozers. Today, we supply the majority of these manufacturers on Australia’s East Coast.
We have developed and extended a Computer-Aided Design Technology that has given us an enviable edge when it comes to original equipment, custom specification for individual or production projects.
Here at ALFAB, we’re a “service” oriented company and all our products are quality built. We stand by them united and with an enthusiasm and professionalism that we believe is unequalled in our field. For quality glass work including all forms of marine glass, boat windscreens and marine windows—we’re the experts you can rely on.
If we can be of assistance to you with any of these products or new requests—please do not hesitate to contact us.
