Greymouth-based Liddell Contracting was established in 1992 and has built a reputation as one of the South Island's most diverse contractors with Engineering, Crane Hire, Civil Construction, and Blasting and Coating divisions.
Liddell Contracting Operations Manager, Anna Liddell, says: “The funding and support DWC's Upskill initiative is providing local business is incredible.”
“Tania’s team has given us the opportunity to train staff into roles that benefit not only them but also us as a company. With the funding that is being allocated to infrastructure on the Coast, it is the perfect time to invest in our staff and keep the work as local as possible.
"Through Upskill we have been able to bring industry recognised welding trainers into the workshop to train workshop staff who did not have qualifications, to become certified welders. This helps us to get more work and increase productivity whilst committing to our employees. Upskilling current staff helps us to grow and create new employment opportunities.”
