Historic Bundaberg site to be auctioned
ONE of Bundaberg’s historic engineering works will go under the hammer tomorrow.
Schultz Engineering, situated at 10-12 Childers Rd, just past the airport, has been operating in Bundaberg since 1961.
Owners George and Ivy Schultz purchased the land in 1959 and built the business up from scratch.
Schultz Engineering & Manufacturing Co was Established in 1961.
At its peak the company employed up to 100 people.
Brad Henderson from Elders Real Estate Bundaberg is the agent selling the property.
He said he had heard about many locals around Bundaberg who had a family member who worked at Schultz Engineering at some stage.
“The company also manufactured farm equipment, selling goods Australia-wide,” Mr Hendersen said.
“George invented an ingenious hammer mill, being one of his patents.
“At one stage the company designed and built cane harvesters as well,” he said.
A second part of the business, Semco Sales, started in 1968.
The three remaining sons Brian, Lyall and Jeff, have decided to sell the property.
It will be auctioned at noon tomorrow.
