Adopting a more commercially astute and sustainable business model has paid dividends for GEPL with the company winning $15m worth of contracts in the past six months.
The Western-Australian based mining and civil contracting specialist has been awarded competitive tenders with miners Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton Iron Ore, and secured maintenance and infrastructure projects with the Shire of Ashburton and the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions.
GEPL has now achieved certification with Supply Nation – the national database of verified Indigenous businesses – which will create further opportunities with government and the corporate sector.
Chief Executive Officer, Tim Larkin, said the company is firmly focussed on growth and diversification as it builds on its recent successes.
“Our aim has been to take financial, partnership and operational performance across the enterprise to new levels,” he said.
“We have strengthened our team, placed greater emphasis on training and safety and invested in better understanding the needs of our clients which has made us more competitive.
“The projects we have won include civil road works, major earthworks, rock sort for rock armour, shutdown works, fire-break clearing, road maintenance and upgrades.
“This shows our broad range of capabilities and our ability to respond to a variety of project needs.”
