About us


Mechintel was established after Managing Director, Chad Wilsdon recognised a need amongst Australian businesses to reduce the costs and time involved in acquiring used equipment, necessary to upgrade or grow their fleet. It is evident that for many, the inspection and purchase process is a costly exercise and logistical nightmare, putting pressure on resources particularly during times of growth.

It involves research, travel, accommodation, inspection, purchasing and transport, many of these steps being repeated numerous times to find the right piece of equipment.

Our aim is to alleviate these stresses on your business by creating streamlined connections between you and equipment through the provision of specialist knowledge and innovative support services, allowing you to focus on your core business and grow.

Chad Wilsdon

Managing Director

Chad’s entire life has revolved around either the maintenance or operation of mechanical equipment…he learnt to count riding alongside his father in his truck. Having completed his Diesel Mechanic apprenticeship with Caterpillar dealer, Cavpower, Chad specialised in field service repairs of earthmoving, transport, power generation and marine equipment. He undertook further training in marine and deployed overseas for a period working as an engineer on luxury yachts.

Upon returning to Australia, Chad undertook roles as a mechanic on oil rigs along with driving roadtrains and transporting oversize equipment across various parts of remote Australia. The FIFO lifestyle allowed him

to complete a commercial helicopter pilot’s licence and fly professionally. Chad’s more recent position, saw him return to Cavpower tasked with the management of their infield oil and gas operation, focused on the provision of servicing and repairs to gas compression, industrial and power generation engines, transport and earthmoving equipment.This varied career to date has given Chad the depth of knowledge across a broad industry base required to support both Mechintel customers and inspectors alike.
