DREDGING, civil contracting and marine civil company Hall Contracting has opened an office in Kuala Lumpur to support its work in the region.

Company managing director Cameron Hall said the company worked in a number of locations across Asia, with previous contracts in Papua New Guinea, Fiji and Thailand.

“Kuala Lumpur struck us as the perfect location to open a new office,” he said.

“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.

“Hall Contracting started as a one-man operation supplying sand and gravel on the Sunshine Coast, and has grown into an internationally-recognised dredging, civil contracting and marine civil business that employs hundreds of workers and operates one of the largest dredging fleets in Australia,” Mr Hall said.

Mr Hall said the most recent additions 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.
