Inver Engineering, a privately owned company established in Melbourne in 1981, services ports and the rail, petrochemical, oil and gas, and manufacturing industries, while Inver Port Services, part of Inver Engineering, provides repairs, maintenance and crane refurbishment services for terminal operators across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.
