Perth's Premier Vehicle Body Builder Since 1970

Starting up nearly 50 years ago, TL Engineering has its humble beginnings as a small backstreet Perth operation. Today it proudly continues as the dominant Western Australian motor vehicle body builder, operating one of the biggest and most up-to-date vehicle body building manufacturing facilities in Australia.

The pride taken in our work is reflected in the final product: our workmanship, tested designs and superior materials produce vehicle builds that are made to last. Our unparalleled range of products and services caters for all vehicle body building needs and applications.

Light Vehicle Solutions include steel and aluminium ute trays, custom built toolboxes, suspension upgrades, roof racks and canvas canopies and other accessories.

TLX 4×4 is a new addition to the family based here in Perth. A desire to build something heavy duty, yet lightweight, something that stood out from the crowd, products that would withstand the toughest Australian conditions lead to the new TLX 4×4 range of products. The quest to continually develop innovative products is in our DNA.

As our point of difference, TLX products are designed, tested, built, painted, fitted with power solutions all under the same roof. This means greater control of the build quality providing customers with confidence.

Our extensive Truck Solutions builds incorporate custom tray bodies, prime-mover fit ups,  hydraulics installations and much more.
