Founded by Jim Lovick in 1959, J. Lovick Engine Reconditioners started operations in a backyard garage but soon grew to become one of the largest full service engine reconditioning shops in Australia. That original business specialised in the reconditioning of petrol engines as well as small diesel engines and over the proceeding years many thousands of engines were reconditioned and shipped throughout Australia.

John Lovick bought the business from his father Jim in 1988 and since this time has continued to grow and adapt the business to suit different markets and clients. Since 1988 the business has specialised in the machining of diesel engines up to 4000HP and including all configurations up to V20s. With over 32 years of experience in the diesel engine reconditioning field, John Lovick is one of the most experienced engine reconditioners in Australia and takes a very hands on approach to the daily operations of the workshop and business overall.
