Boasting around 800m2 of warehouse, state of the art service facilities, offices, and training rooms / facilities, the centre will cater for both on and off-shore safety businesses in a fully air-conditioned modern environment.

A top notch premises and currently being repainted and carpeted throughout. With ducted air-conditioning to over 250m2 of training rooms and office space, and a cool high-clearance warehouse packed with high-tech training props the business will be well and truly up and running in February.
The confidence in Queensland is well founded with over $150 billion being spent on known investments of coal seam gas in Central to SE Queensland, along with additional Coal Loaders in Gladstone and Abbot Point near Townsville to cater for large coal deposits being developed in the west. These are exciting times..
