On Thursday 1 November 2018, members of our Townsville Defence team, who are currently delivering the EOLRP project at Mt Stuart, attended the Building North Queensland Defence Supply Chain Forum. Run by the Queensland Government, the industry event was held to facilitate opportunities between the local Townsville supply chain and prime contractors, such as St Hilliers.
The event was attended by over a dozen fellow prime contractors, united by the common goal of increasing local industry participation in Defence projects and other key infrastructure programmes planned for the region over the next ten years. The response from local industry was fantastic, with the ‘speed-dating’ concept between prime contractors and local businesses proving a great success.
The forum proved to be a great event and was a valuable opportunity to demonstrate St Hilliers’ commitment to the Townsville region and strengthen the existing relationships that have been key to our success in Far North Queensland to date.
