Since 1990, we have been a family-owned and operated business committed to providing quality blasting and painting services to clients throughout the North Queensland region. Our first and foremost commitment is to our local community—utilising the local workforce and participating in major community projects.

As our operations continued, so did our expansion into new business avenues, transforming us into a multi-faceted blasting company today. We now supply a full range of services, including UHP water jetting, vacuum loading and extensive on-site services, in addition to our original scope of abrasive blasting and protective coatings.

Our Staff

Over the years, we have built a stable and skilled workforce with many long-term permanent employees. We promote leadership culture, loyalty, and commitment to values throughout our workforce, from labourers to top-tier management ensuring employee retention.

Our business is an EEO employer; we are proud of our diverse workforce comprising five different nationalities and ten ESL staff. Our ability to connect and welcome workers into our team has provided opportunities to those in the local community and skilled workers overseas.
