And we’re not even starting to act our age, having just opened a new office in Brisbane earlier this year. A half-century of experience, 10 offices Australia-wide and more than 50 staff: That’s a lot to celebrate.
Although our team works around the nation, throughout Asia and overseas, we never forget where it all started: in two rooms overlooking the car park at the back of Devonport’s Formby Hotel. From these humble beginnings in November 1964, the firm quickly grew and, in the mid-1990s established itself as the leader in what was then brand new technology—3D laser scanning. Among Lester Franks’ achievements is our pioneering use of 3D scanning in areas ranging from rescaling of major sculptural works, mapping of underwater cracks in hydro-electric dams, modelling of internal industrial plant structures to reverse engineer new or innovative parts and much more. So join us in raising a toast to the vision, creativity and innovative thinking that Lester Franks continues to bring to the world of spatial engineering.
