About Us

Our history

Established by John and Anna Parker in 2010, Central Maintenance and Welding secured a large premises adjacent to the train yards in Rockhampton.  This has enabled the business to provide services to the rail industry and further afield due to their logistic advantage.

In 2020, Jo Parker, John and Anna’s daughter took the reins of the business and is driving it forward. With her father’s passion for providing exceptional workmanship and timely services, Jo is forging the company in a new direction to facilitate and provide better products and more versatility. This is being achieved through focusing on research and innovation.
