The Dion Mechanical Services workshop.

By Matthew Pearce

The place to go for all things mechanical and off-grid, mechanical services and TCT solutions from Dion have come a long way since their beginnings as a small one-man business over six years ago.

Located at 45 Derby St, Rockhampton, Dion’s Mechanical Services offers a range of automotive service and repair work for all makes, makes and models of vehicle, covering everything from logbook and general maintenance to air conditioning service and repairs, brake and clutch service and repairs, suspension upgrades, caravans and trailers and EFI.

Dion’s Mechanical started as a mobile business in December 2015, before moving to the current Derby St site around four years ago. There are now five employees between the two companies.

Company owner Dion Cain said staff “live and breathe” everything mechanical and outdoor and their hard work has been rewarded with a dedicated customer base.

“We’re sold out about three weeks in advance, but our clients are willing to wait that long because they believe in the quality of our work,” he said.

“We strive to get the job done right the first time, ensuring your vehicle is safe and reliable when you really need it.

“Our modern workshop and highly experienced team allow us to take our customer service standards to the next level.”

As an authorized Repco service center, Dion’s mechanical services are committed to providing high quality work, guaranteeing the best in automotive maintenance.

Dion’s Mechanical also employs a fully qualified automotive electrician.

A second company operating on the same site, TCT Solutions (which stands for Touring, Camping, Trade) was launched at the Big Boys Toys Expo last year, specializing in bespoke, high quality awnings for cars and trailers, as well as installation of battery systems, inverters, solar kits and accessories.

“TCT Solutions was founded on a passion for making camping and outdoor adventures easier and more convenient,” said Dion.

“The dream was to feel at home wherever you go. Whether for tourism, camping or trade, we can help you create a practical awning layout, adapted to your specific needs.

“We take pride in every job we do, with all products matched to the highest quality workmanship.”

TCT brands include Enerdrive, Camp King Canopies, Redarc, Narva, Morningstar, Simarine, Blue Sea Systems, Hulk 4X4 and more.

Dion Mechanical Services and TCT Solutions are open 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
