About Strzelecki Engineering

Strzelecki Engineering Pty Ltd (‘Strzelecki Engineering’) was formed by two friends, Carmelo Mancarella and Paul Van de Rydt in 2002. The business is based in Mirboo North, South Gippsland.

Strzelecki Engineering initially focused on servicing clients in the agricultural, residential and industrial sectors with mechanical, structural steel and metal fabrication products, structures, plant and equipment. Over time, it  built a strong reputation for quality and service. This enabled it to expand its geographic coverage from Mirboo North in South Gippsland to Mallacoota in East Gippsland, Melbourne and as far as Geelong, working on both local projects like the DPI Dairy Research Centre at Ellinbank and the Coles Distribution Centre in Melbourne.

Over the past few years, the business has also focused on commercial and industrial buildings, multi-storey steel work, architecturally-designed houses, bridges, heavy maintenance shut-down work and infrastructure projects.
