Schlam Engineering’s history began when it was originally established in 1996 as Schlam Welding.

Barry Schlam saw a need for high quality precision welding and fabrication services in the South West industrial sector of Western Australia. Schlam Welding quickly established a reputation for outstanding quality and service throughout the area by the time Barry’s son Ryan joined the company in 2001.

Since then, Schlam has grown from a small Yarloop-based workshop with four employees to working on major resource projects across the state armed with a mobile workforce and a state-of-the-art maintenance facility.

With a shared passion to succeed, Barry and Ryan expanded and evolved the business to emerge as one of Western Australia’s leading maintenance and asset management companies servicing the resources sector. This fast-growing success was demonstrated by two significant events in 2011 – the renaming of the business to Schlam Engineering and the construction of a brand new flagship facility.

Today the company continues to progress and employs over 80 mining professionals operating in a variety of locations. As we strive to build on this quality foundation, we commit to staying true to our values and delivering on our “Can do, Will Do, Done Safely” ethos.
