Latest technology, new water jet cutting…
IN THE 18 months since he purchased Marcia Street Fabrications, director Phillip White has invested in a range of new technologies that have turned the long-established and respected local company into a world-class facility. While the focus is firmly regional, Marica
Street Fabrications have undertaken projects as far afield as Dubai and China, a testament to the quality of services they offer.
Marcia Street Fabrications has been a trusted local business in Coffs Harbour for more than 30 years. When Phillip purchased the company in 2014 it was his vision to update the machinery in order to offer the highest quality and most advanced fabrication services in the region.
He has certainly done that. As well as the best welding machines money can buy, and a
range of new CNC machinery including a new CNC Brake Press, Phillip has invested $250,000 in a state-of-the-art Tech ni jet Water Cut ter. The Techni jet offers absolute precision, ac cu racy and the highest high-quality finish on everything from stain less steel to aluminium, stone and mild steel.
“The Tech ni jet brand is Australian-made, which is re ally important to us,” Phillip said.
“Being located here in Australia, it offers great service and ac cess to spares.
“The Techni jet offers an advantage over other cutters in that there is no heat in the
process which can cause heat distortion; and there is almost no clean up time of the cut edge due to the process of the five-cut quality set ting – from su per fine to course.
“Also, the bed is 4m by 2m, I would say this is the largest in the region. It enables us to
work on larger sheet materials and larger projects.”
Phillip and the team have been putting the Techni jet through its paces since it arrived,
testing its ca pa bil i ties on a variety of projects to en sure they have a full understanding of its capabilities.

“We even made a gear cog out of stone the other day, just to see if it was possible,” Phillip
said. “We want to keep testing what the ma chine can do, so when customers ask us if we can achieve an end result, we can answer with certainty.
“With the Techni jet, there isn’t much we can’t cut.”
As well as the technology itself, Phillip has invested in staff and training, ensuring the people operating the machines are as skilled as the technology itself.
“A big part of our decision to live and work in the area has been a de sire to create job opportunities for locals in the region, and we have invested in training for our team so they are highly-skilled. It’s great for our business, and great for the community.”
“The new technologies are important, but having the best staff is key to our success,”
Phillip said. “Our work shop manager Jamie Hammond has been with Marcia Street Fabrications for 12 years, and gives our customers a great deal of confidence in our continuity of quality and on-time delivery.”
