Brothers Ben and Joe Dickinson are the drive behind the ROPS Engineering brand, starting operations in Bibra Lake in 2008 before business expansion forced relocation to Forrestdale in 2012.
With a purpose-built property of 8000 square metres and 2000 square metres under roof, the company has the space to handle the biggest and hardest tasks with ease, whether that be fit-ups, rebuilds or refurbishments.
“We listen to our customers’ needs and try to accommodate them wherever possible. It’s all about getting the small things right and the bigger things fall into place,” Ben says.
“We don’t want to follow. We want to innovate and produce the best possible ROPS/FOPS as well as re-styling vehicles for optimal use by the client. We do that all in-house, something we are very proud of.”
ROPS Engineering has more than 20 staff with a wealth of experience, from sales people, draftsmen, boilermakers and welders to mechanics, painters and hydraulic engineers. With this huge investment in staff and training, we have a talented team with expert knowledge to find the best possible solutions for the customers.
