George’s Loader Hire continues it’s involvement in every major rail project in QLD, having being awarded the contract for Wet Plant Hire as part of the Rail, Integration and Systems (RIS) Works for the Cross-River Rail project, by CPB.
“We are honoured and excited for the opportunity to perform an integral role in Queensland’s latest rail project” said Kelly Cooke, Director of George’s Loader Hire. “As important, is how our involvement in this project allows us to provide a secure and ongoing working environment for our dedicated and loyal team here at GLH. A fact that we don’t take lightly, especially with the enormous challenges experienced by so many businesses currently”.
These sentiments were also shared recently by Kate Jones, Queensland Development Minister.
“Major State Government-funded infrastructure projects are crucial to Queensland’s economic recovery,” Ms Jones said.
“Right now, Cross River Rail is already supporting more than 2,000 jobs. At the height of construction, that number will be more like 3,000.
“But it’s the flow-on effects to local businesses that will help to stimulate our economy when we need it most.”
More than 90 per cent of Cross River Rail contracts have gone to Queensland-based companies.
“Local contracts mean local jobs – that’s what this project is all about,” Ms Jones said.
GLH has always been a family-owned and operated business since its inception in 1994. Their people are their focus, ensuring the most skilled and experienced are part of the team. In addition, GLH leads the industry through innovation with their equipment and attachments built for purpose on-site at their workshop in Willawong.
