The company has evolved over two generations with an extensive background in construction with many of the larger irrigation pumping facilities developed over the last 25 years within the region, designed fabricated & installed by our team and then maintained overhauled and upgraded as required.
The Crighton business philosophy is simple but proven “do it once & do it well".
Crighton’s have an extensive customer network from many industry sectors that utilize our workshop and field support services with policys and procedures that have seen us accepted to work at sites managed by major departmental bodies such as RMS (Roads and Maritine Services), Telstra, Public Works, State Water etc.
Crighton’s aim to offer a complete drawing board to field completion capacity. Our experience has been in servicing not only Irrigation facilities but we have over the last 25 years serviced most municipal assets from primary river lifts, weirs, municipal ground water facilities, water storage reservoirs, town supply lines and service valves, aquatic centres, waste depots, filtered water facilities and top to bottom maintenance of sewer reticulation facilities.
