Our History

historyCronin Fabrication was established in 1887 as TA Cronin & Sons and began operations from a small shop on Magill Rd, Magill.

The mainstay of the business was importing, tinning and wire products manufacturing. The company soon outgrew the premises and decided to expand the existing factory, rather than move.

Gradually the wire manufacturing side of the business began to dominate and the tinning and importing sections were dropped from the business. For the next hundred years the Cronin family owned and operated the business, employing many South Australian’s and teaching them the craft of wire manufacturing. Products made over these years include milk bottle holders, display stands, shopping trolleys and wire baskets.

By 1987 the business had grown and we moved to a new factory in William St, Mile End South. At this time the Cronin family sold the business and the name was changed to Cronin Wire Products.

In 1992, Cronin’s was again on the move, this time to our current address at Rosslyn St, Mile End South. Sheetmetal work was introduced to expand the business and Cronin Sheetmetal was formed. More recently the current owner purchased the business and the name was changed to its  Cronin Fabrication, to more accurately describe the mix of products we manufacture. Please be assured, we plan to continue to meet or exceed your expectations in delivering quality light industrial products and to be your first choice in the fabrication market so that you ask for Cronin Fabrication by name.

Today our business employs 9 people including apprentices in the sheetmetal trade. We still manufacture wire products along with a wide range of sheetmetal and general light fabrication components. We are proud of our history and with the talented team of skilled tradespeople we are confident that Cronin Fabrication will be supplying quality goods for another hundred years.
