In 1988, as a self-employed contractor, 21-year old Alan Brown purchased a single Bobcat and truck. Over the next five years he continued to expand his business with new wife Belinda, and purchased his first excavator. This led to the creation of Browns Earthmoving Pty Ltd in 1997, an increase in the machinery inventory and the employment of their first machinery operator.

Significant contracts across Victoria – including the substantial Westgate Freeway upgrade project – saw Alan and the company begin to specialise in rock drilling, promoting the arrival of a new Italian-built mast mounted drill rigs. This heralded a new era in expansion of the company’s drilling fleet and was reflected in a change of name from Browns Earthmoving Pty Ltd to Browns Piling Pty Ltd.

Today, the Browns Piling brand has become synonymous with innovation and problem-solving in the field of rock drilling. A close R&D relationship is established with Digga Australia led to the production of specialised drilling equipment including custom-made augers, core barrels and rock drills. The company now boasts of one of the most impressive machinery fleets of its kind in Australia, and continues to break new ground in finding innovative solutions for complex rock drilling, close to the wall boundary drilling and full retention design solutions.

Despite two decades of tremendous growth and specialisation however, Alan and Belinda have never lost sight of the immense importance of their people: from clients to partners and of course, to their highly valued employees – the first one of whom is still with the company to this day.


Browns Piling is committed to providing quality piling solutions for our clients through innovation, service and the highest level of quality in every aspect of our work. We value the relationships we develop with our staff and customers, and, as a company, we continually seek new innovations, solutions and opportunities to enhance our position as Australia’s leading rock drilling and piling specialist.
