As we enter our sixth year of operations we look back with pride and some relief that our joint venture to diversify our civil operations into the heavy earthmoving arena has generated great success and appears to have a promising outlook for the future. With the support of a dedicated management and operations team we have grown the business, expanded our fleet of heavy equipment, broadened our range of expertise and proved our ability to work in remote and sometimes hostile locations.
In the past few years we have seen some significant changes in the industry as the development needs of our country compete with, and hopefully complement the growing environmental lobby and the needs of our communities. We are also proud to have been a part of the drive to improve the image of our wider industry in the field of occupational health and safety, and we are proud, but not complacent, of our excellent record in site safety management.
Establishing a new business is never easy in a tight economic environment where tender price is a dominant consideration. It is a source of great satisfaction to our company that every single assignment completed has either lead to follow up work or to discussions that such further work will be forthcoming in the future.
Our employees, subcontractors and loyal suppliers are the heart of our business, and we continue to improve our systems and relationships to ensure quality workmanship is maintained. Our industry does not always offer the most attractive of working conditions and these conditions are at times far from home base.
As we look ahead to the challenges that face us we look forward to being a part of the changing infrastructure base in Australia. There will no doubt be good and bad times in the years to come but it is our urgent wish that our relationships will overcome the problems and generate mutural benefit when times are good. We hope this short publication will be of interest to you and we will be able to do business in the future.
