Alcan Engineering opens office
GLADSTONE'S industrial footing has resulted in another company setting up an office locally.
Alcan Engineering (Alceng), a member of the Alcan group of companies which own a large stake of Queensland Alumina Limited (QAL), celebrated the opening of their first Gladstone office yesterday.
Alcan Engineering manag-ing director Greg Wood said the opening of the office would provide an opportunity to provide engineering support to Gladstone industry.
'We want to be in a position to deliver Alceng's expertise to businesses in Gladstone and the greater Central Queensland region with a direct presence,' Mr Wood said.
Alceng provides engineering services in countries all over the world, including to the Gove alumina refinery in the Northern Territory.
Minister for Natural Resources and Mines Stephen Robertson said the commitment shown by large companies to Gladstone was a good indication of a robust and expanding region.
Alceng's new office is in the Country Plaza building in Goondoon Street and will be managed by Gladstone engineer Dale Coward.
