New Front End Loader

24 January 2024

 

Demed recently received our New Front End Loader The new Loader will continue to help our ever expanding Civil Team grow and offer our employees additional career and training opportunities.

 

With our civil program expanding rapidly with continued contracts with Kakadu National Park, West Arnhem Regional Council, Bawinanga Aboriginal Corporation and our contract with Government to build new houses in Gunbalanya, this new Loader will increase operations and efficiency.

 

Demed would like to thank the cooperation with National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA) for awarding both graders and seeing the economic benefits to our region. Without their support, our civil team wouldn’t be able to grow this fast and members of the  Demed civil team wouldn't have the opportunities to develop their skill further.
