Corporate Profile

In 1922 Percy Robert King started P. R. King Pty Ltd Engineers and Machinery Merchants in the Sydney suburb of Marrickville. After the Second World War Percy’s two sons Lindsay and Alex, both graduate engineers from The University of Sydney, upon their release from the services joined the business and a proud father changed the company name to P. R. King and Sons Pty Ltd. The two boys, both keen design engineers, moved the firm into more of a manufacturing company. They designed and built such things as stern doors for roll on roll off cargo vessels, winches for the Snowy Scheme, Formwork Hoists that were able to climb up new buildings as they were being constructed, window cleaning hoists for multi story buildings and the first ‘Inclinator’ in 1952. Many of their designs were patented and two were featured on the front cover of the internationally acclaimed journal, Elevator World.
