2018 may be half over, but with some exciting announcements to share at Civilex it feels like just the beginning! We are delighted to announce a new era for our growing construction family with a new line up of companies in our fold: Civilex, Conset, and Grampians Excavations.
Existing as “cousin entities” for over a decade, Civilex and Conset have now formally merged, and Civilex has also acquired Stawell-based company Grampians Excavations. The consolidation of these three entities better positions our company for growth within the state and civil engineering and construction industries.
So, What Has Changed?
In July 2018 Civilex announced additions and developments to the Directorship of its associated business entities.
No one left. Everyone came on board.
Conset – a full structure concrete construction services business – has merged with civil construction company Civilex. The two Civilex Directors Ray Dando and Andrew Fairbairn have formally come on board as Directors of the Conset entity, whilst Joe Bartolo remains as Managing Director. Conset now has access to more resources which will allow the concrete business to grow and expand its wings into the civil space to participate in higher-end infrastructure projects across Victoria.
All three Directors – Joe Bartolo, Ray Dando and Andrew Fairbairn – acquired the Stawell-based Grampians Excavations with founding Director Jim Leithhead retaining a 25% sharehold in the Grampians business. This strategic acquisition gives the group a greater regional reach and expertise.
Managing Director Joe Bartolo says, “We are excited about our future and will continue working hard to create and consolidate our high-performance culture that delivers projects on time, on budget and to the highest standard. We also look forward to welcoming employees working across the three entities into our shared company culture and values, and ultimately becoming one team.”
So, although it is now past the halfway mark for 2018, within the walls of the Civilex family this new line up really does mark a new beginning. Civilex is growing bigger and stronger, and the quality services we offer our clients reflect this. From our humble beginnings in 2008 to where we are now, Civilex has proven itself to be a company to watch. So, just keep watching.
