The very first SVS workshop was located at 186 Draper Street and was about 180 sq metres. We quickly outgrew this and moved into a 220 sq mtr purpose built workshop at 110 Scott Street. In December 1991, we moved to 184 Newell Street which was a 360 sq mtr workshop. We purchased this building 5 years later with the view to purchase the joining building in the next few years. But with our ever growing business we knew that the adjoining property was not suitable so we had to choose a building carefully. Then in October 2011 we moved to our current premises at 19 Muir Street. This is a healthy 760 sq meters with 420 sq meters of fully fenced backyard for long term vehicle storage.
For a period of about 5 years we also ran a mobile brake machining business in conjunction with SVS. We serviced most of the mechanical workshops in Cairns and the surrounding areas, providing “on and off” car disc machining, brake drum machining and brake shoe radius grinding along with sound advice. The mobile side of the business was eventually sold but we have since purchased more modern equipment so we could still provide all of these services in house at a competitive price to our valued customers.
