Our people

Who are we?

We’re locals. We know our community because we are a part of it. We take pride in this local knowledge because it helps us to do good things for our region. In fact, you’ll find the key motivator for our employees is the ability to positively contribute to our community. And you’re a part of us too.

We are better together

We have a deeply held belief that together we can accomplish far more than individually. We all have a common purpose – to consistently provide cost-effective, safe and reliable products and services, to the communities that we serve, today and tomorrow. As a team, we are proud of what we have already achieved and our future is even more energising.

We’re bound together by our values

These are our common beliefs, the things that keep us focused on the end goal even when the going gets tough. They’re clean, simple ideas with the power to accomplish great things.
Put simply, our values are care, courage and commitment.
