I have been a member of ASBSH since…

2019

I am a member of ASBSH because…

Our business specialises in bulk materials storage and handling. And I am keen to network and be up to date with new information.

I got into bulk handling because…

Our family business had been building farm type grain silos. In the last 20 to 30 years, we have developed a more diversified portfolio which includes solutions for a range of non-free flowing bulk solids.

I am currently researching…

We are working on developing new and improved systems for monitoring the condition and quality of grain and food materials in storage.

I love my current work because…

In enjoy being in a family company and providing solutions in a quite specialised field.

In my role it’s important to…

Keep abreast of developments and to provide innovative and reliable storage and handling solutions.

The project I am most proud of is…

hard to choose. There are quite a few – from handling specialist materials to large storage projects. One of our higher profile projects would be the export facility at Port Kembla

My career highlight is… 

a special mention at the Bulk Handling Awards in 2012

I am inspired by …

My family including the next generation in our business.

The most valuable lesson I have learned is… 

When something doesn’t work, persisting until the solution is found. Mainly because that’s how experience is built.

My plans for the future are…

Transitioning our business to the next generation.

When I am not working you will probably find me…

Flying or farming.
