Significant growth in Queensland for asset management services group CW Pope has allowed the group to post their best year to date with a turnover in excess of $5 million per annum in Central Queensland.
The growth is attributed to the regional management team headed by Queensland regional manager David Smith since 1997.
Further growth was recently achieved with the purchase of M-Test branches in Blackwater, Dysart and Townsville, extending the group's presence to these centres from the Gladstone region office.
CW Pope said the purchase of the M-Test branches enhances the company's ability to remain at the forefront of asset management services for Bowen Basin coal mines particularly. The company currently provides specialised asset management and condition monitoring services for four Queensland longwall mines. Longwall mines represent about 35% of CW Pope's Queensland business.
Services include non destructive testing and material engineering for a broad range of clients from its New South Wales and Queensland branches.
