The History of C & L Sales and Services Pty Ltd
The two directors of C&L Services P/L started their career within the oil/aviation industry back in the bicentenary year of 1988. Both were then employed by the now defunct company, National Valve & Engineering P/L.
At the time, N.V.E were the leading supplier to the aviation / oil industry of anything related to aviation refuelling equipment. Sadly, N.V.E were to close after a few disastrous company takeovers.
C&L Services P/L was formed back in 1994 initially employing just three staff. Today and many years onward, a great deal has changed. Employee numbers did climb to include casual aircraft refuellers but now we returned to an easier to manage number of around ten trades & several sales persons.
Mostly during 2004, the company direction moved from one that focused only on aviation refuelling equipment servicing, to the supply of parts and equipment within the oil/aviation industry.
C&L went from strength to strength and in a very short time we found ourselves distributing for several large global companies within the oil/aviation industry.
Mid-2005 we took on more work at Sydney’s (Kingsford Smith) Airport. C&L now service & supply all of the major oil companies based at Mascot Airport. A fleet which consists of over 60 refuelling vehicles
Early in 2008, C&L Sales P/L was born. C&L Services as you know it was split into two companies. The sales side of the new company doing what the sales side of companies should do and the services side of the old company doing what service companies should do.
The start of 2012 brought another change. The challenge of managing two separate and very busy companies became a real issue with the accountants and the C&L office staff. At the beginning of the 2012 year C&L Sales Pty Ltd and C&L Services Pty Ltd were merged to become C&L Sales & Services P/L C&L specialise in aircraft refuelling equipment and everything associated.
It’s what we do and we do it well. C&L are based at Australia’s busiest airport (Sydney Kingsford Smith) and have history that goes back to 1988.
As of August 2012, C&L began operations at Melbourne Airport. C&L are not the largest company in the world nor are we the largest company in Australia but we are the company with the best reputation and the most real hands-on experience.
C&L will and do, travel Australia and sometimes the world. C&L were recently invited to assist in running a maintenance training course for Pertamina Aviation located in Indonesia. C&L have since been invoved in many onsite Indonesian projects.
C&L are available for your on-site maintenance and also to assist in your training, inspections and auditing.
C&L operate out of Sydney and Melbourne Airports.
Shell Aviation recently “again” awarded their maintenance contract for the above two airports to C&L.
