Sunshine Coast-based dredging, civil contracting and marine civil company Hall Contracting is celebrating its expansion within the international market, having recently opened a new office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Hall Contracting Managing Director Cameron Hall said as the first Hall Contracting branch to open outside of Australian borders since the company’s Fiji office some years ago, the new office opening in Kuala Lumpur was an important milestone for the 68-year-old business.
“While we’ve been working in the international market for some time now, it’s really exciting to be further cementing our presence abroad,” Mr Hall said.
“We attract work in a number of locations across Asia, so Kuala Lumpur struck us as the perfect location to open a new office; it acts as a great base for flying in and out of various countries across the Asia Pacific, and allows us to work closely with clients in these areas and develop new business leads.”
Mr Hall said the new base was already being used by numerous employees within the organisation and was headed up by Hall Contracting’s South-East Asia Manager Pieter Bogers.
He said the most recent editions to Hall Contracting’s fleet included the 10,000HP ‘Eastern Aurora’ and 4,500HP ‘Amity’ cutter suction dredges.
“Our fleet of dredges and ancillary equipment is continuing to grow and our newest acquisitions allow us to tackle an even bigger range of projects around the world,” Mr Hall said.
Hall Contracting’s new Malaysia office is located in the Menara Citibank building, 165 Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur.
