Our welders are certified nationally and for all track variables such as crane, groove rail, heavy rail. In addition, they are certified to conduct welds on the track of all rail asset owners. Procurement becomes seamless as certification can, and more often is, provided in advance to avoid any delays to the project. Our welding crews are currently working Australia wide from Northern Territories to Tasmania.
To safeguard our standards, we conduct internal and external weld audits on a regular basis, also carry out random drug and alcohol testing.
