Our Company

People choose us because we don’t shy away from ‘hard’. This is because we embrace challenges and through a holistic, creative, team-based approach, we deliver a value-engineered solution.

Control Power Systems P/L was established as an electrical and mechanical consultancy and contracting company based in Ballina NSW. In that time, CPS has evolved to become one of the premier mech/elec engineering companies on Australia’s eastern seaboard. Our broad influence and expertise has seen us provide outstanding engineering outcomes from Sydney NSW to Bundaberg Qld, Echuca, VIC and Moora, WA

At CPS, we pride ourselves on providing turnkey project solutions for new projects or upgrades to existing sites from conceptual design through to completion of construction and beyond.

We provide a “whole of lifetime solution” with ongoing technical advice and service. Our customer base is long established and is a testament to the quality solutions our company provides.

CPS also has the capacity to integrate various other specialist skills in mechanical, civil and other engineering disciplines to meet our customer project requirements.
