With a career spanning 55 years in the mining, oil and gas industry, you would be hard pressed to find anybody with a broader knowledge base and skill set than Brian.

He started his career as a trade plant mechanic and his leadership and technical competency were soon identified, and he found himself thrust into the high-pressure environment of running workshops for mine sites. Downtime is a swear word in the mining sector and Brian became the go-to when you needed the job done right the first time, a quality trait that has endured to this day.

Brian is a qualified mine inspector and started his own business in 1989 specializing in cranes, heavy plant and forklifts. He also owns a specialized training company with facilities in the Pilbara. If its a question on heavy lifting, shifting or safety within the industry Brian will undoubtedly be able to assist.
