Allenby Engineering was started by John Lee in 1988, John seeing the benefits a rotary platform could bring to his dairy farm decided with his previous skills & experience to build his own rotary platform. The business grew from John’s own platform into a few orders for platforms quickly into a full-time business with platforms being built nationally and exported into 14 countries.

John’s son Steve Lee joined Allenby Engineering in 2002 with a trade background and worked alongside John until 2017. Steve now operates the business allowing John to enjoy semi-retirement.

The Lee name has a strong association with rotary dairy manufacturing and Allenby Platforms are quite often referred to as a Lee or John Lee platform.

The original Allenby Engineering platform constructed in 1988 is still in operations today which demonstrates the reliability and durability of the Allenby Platform
