About McLeod Engineering Cairns

McLeod Engineering was founded in Cairns in 1976 by Bill McLeod, who built a solid reputation servicing the marine industry until his retirement in 2012, when he sold the business to current owners and long term employees, Dan McLeod and Dennis Bissett.

Dan McLeod is a qualified Diesel Fitter with a vast range of experience and troubleshooting abilities. He started his apprenticeship at McLeod Engineering back in 1993, and worked in a number of positions in the marine industry, both locally and internationally before returning to McLeod Engineering back in 2008.

Dennis Bissett started in a spare parts role with McLeod Engineering in 2003. Prior to that, he spent 17 years at MTU Detroit Diesel in spare parts, and provides a wealth of knowledge for our customers.

McLeod Engineering’s current team also consists of a further 4 qualified Diesel Fitters, who all boast many years of experience, 3 apprentices and 2 administration staff. In addition, we have the option to call on Bill McLeod as a consultant when required.
