Our Story

In 2017 CP Metal Fabrication celebrated being in business for 60 years. We’re still going strong and the outlook for the future looks good.

The company began its journey as C&P Plumbing and Sheet Metal Works in 1957. The business was started by the late Ron Porter with a silent partner Ray Coogan, a local Bulimba builder who financed the venture.

The original premises was in a single garage out the back of Ron’s house in Carina with the large machinery being located in the driveway to the house. 


In the early 60’s the workshop moved to Taylor Street, Bulimba where the business grew rapidly and soon a new extension was added to double the size of the premises.

In 1974 the workshop moved from Taylor street into Carbeen Street, Bulimba the weekend before the 1974 floods.

With the water rising Ron, his sons and some of the staff lifted all the machinery on to benches to preventing them going under. The workshop had about 300mm of flood water go through it, but luckily no damage was caused.


Unfortunately, Ron passed away in March 1981.

He left the business to his son Graham who continued Ron's legacy and ensured the continued growth of the business. It wasn't all easy though. The first few years were bumpy, however Graham learned very fast, with loyal staff and direction from his accountants the business began to grow substantially.

In November 2020 Graham sold the business to local family man Matt, who has continued this growth today.

Our clients have been many and varied, cotton ginneries, saw mills, furniture makers, boat builders, food processors and many other industries that all call CP Metal Fabrication for their metal work requirements.

CP Metal Fabrication have a trusted team of workers. The main four combined have over 110 years of service with the company, with this experience there is nothing that we can’t do. 

Remember “If you can draw it, CP Metal Fabrication can make it.’
