Baker & Provan made the Weld Australia NSW division news in September after being awarded AS/NZS ISO 3834 Part 2 Certification for meeting the Comprehensive quality requirements for fusion welding of metallic materials both in workshop and at field installation sites. It was a long and rewarding process for Baker & Provan, one which adds an additional layer to our quality system and in turn provides our customer with confidence. Congratulations Team!
Baker & Provan were recently engaged to manufacture bogie wheels. By our customer choosing to manufacture these wheels in country, provided them with the confidence that they were manufactured to specification and to the highest quality. Results of which speak for themselves.
Baker & Provan have been assisting with the refurbishment of concrete moulds which will be used to manufacture the tunnels, part of the Sydney Metro 2 project. As detailed within the video below, construction starts this year with planning approval received for Sydney Metro between Chatswood and Sydenham. The project includes new twin rail tunnels under Sydney Harbour and through the CBD. Program completion is 2024
Baker & Provan wish to congratulate Luke Stanton-Mount for winning two My Gateway apprentice of the year awards. Luke walked away with both third year apprentice of the year and the overall My Gateway apprentice of the year.
Luke was nominated by Baker & Provan's Management Team, for recognition of his enthusiasm, eye for detail and overall work ethic. Luke then had to undergo competitive assessment by My Gateway which included management interviews, assessments and review of references. The result of this process crystallised when he was both third year apprentice of the year and the overall My Gateway apprentice of the year in late November.
For over 30 years My Gateway employs apprentices and trainees and places them with a host business to receive training in their chosen industry. In Luke's case, Baker & Provan was the business which fulfilled the requirements for his career development.
Earlier in the year, Luke competed and came third in the World Skills Regional Competition 2017. Since 1981 World Skills have been the leading voice for skills excellence in vocational, technological and service oriented careers in Australia. It has raised the awareness of hundreds of thousands of young Australians and their parents, industry and employers, that our nation’s future depends on effective skills training systems.
Baker & Provan are delighted with Luke's achievements as he progresses to master his craft.
At a recent My Gateway awards night, Baker & Provan were recognised for supporting and developing apprentices and trainees within our industry.
Baker & Provan, being a fabrication and machining business, understands that our industry will not survive unless we continue to foster and support new apprentices. Whilst more and more of our work is going off shore, we believe that it's imperative as a nation that we continue to mentor, develop and grow our industry to ensure Australia retains this capability.
We are extremely humbled to be recognised for this.

On the 15th May, Baker & Provan launched its new website and social pages; Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin. "Its been a long time coming. The old website has served us well but now it's time to modernise and also improve our social presence" said General Manager, Bob Findlay.

Inspecting our quality workmanship onsite, Baker & Provan continue their relationship with the OEM's to be preferred support provider for Davits installed on the LHD and FFG naval vessels. We not only offer onsite service, we also remove, provide complete refurbishment and installation services. A complete support service.
Not taking any risks associated with machining, Baker & Provan stress relieves each bogie prior to machining. Without stress relieving, the potential for error when machining increases due to metal movements. The furnace has been a great investment, it gives us the capability to increase our production and improve our quality.
The Big Nomura
