Established in Melbourne in 2002, Vertex provides highly specialised engineering, management and on-site services relating to rigging, lifting and commercial construction.

Vertex employs a documented quality management system for the design, engineering, certification, fabrication, procurement, installation, maintenance and project management. The system is designed specifically around lifting & handling equipment, general mechanical plant and structures.



We are well equipped to understand the unique challenges of every project. Our design philosophy is one built on real-world experience with practical consideration to easy and cost-effective manufacture, installation and maintenance. Designs and advice are compliant with relevant Australian Standards, legislation and stringent in-house quality control procedures. The latest in 3D CAD software is utilised to assist in the development and documentation of new concepts.


Backed by years of practical experience and professional in-house systems, procedures and policies, we provide a total project management service. From feasibility studies and concepts, right through to final project delivery and handover, we assume responsibility for project and contract administration, scheduling, budgeting and coordination. This includes management of consultants, authority liaison, construction management and defect remediation.

We provide a full suite of on-site rigging and lifting services, including:

• Installation services     • Advanced rigging services     • Specialised lifts     • Assessments, inspections, tests and reports     • Regular maintenance, including development of custom service programs and templates     • Re-certification of existing equipment     • Decommissioning of old equipment

Custom Lifting Gear

Many rigging and lifting projects require tailored engineering solutions – in this case, custom equipment can be designed from scratch to meet specific user requirements. Where possible, however, we strive to design solutions around the use of readily available proprietary products, to keep designs as a cost-effective and simple as possible.

Lifting and handling requires skilled and experienced personnel to effectively assess, design, fabricate, assemble and maintain certified equipment. Our team employs its extensive practical knowledge and experience to ensure that equipment provides safe and cost-effective solutions to customers.
