On the back of a stellar year of growth, PJL Group is gearing up for another huge year announcing an $8 million contract win. The major fleet rebuild contract is a clear indicator that PJL Group is more than holding its own and is firmly muscling market position amongst the long-term larger industry players.
PJL Group General Manager, Luke Buckland, acknowledges these contracts are usually reserved for large Original Equipment Manufacturers, but explained the successful bid represented a shift in industry practices.
“This is recognition by the industry that expert maintenance organisations are winning out against equipment suppliers,” Luke said. “This presents new opportunities for specialisation by businesses like PJL Group. We have been able to leverage off our exceptional product support, which is second to none, and our commitment to living our values.
“Warranty is more than a statement on a piece of paper. Warranty, customer support and client relationships are at the core of PJL Group’s entire operation. Your business is only ever as strong as your ability to fulfil these expectations and promises made to your clients.
“Now with a national footprint and almost 300 employees, PJL Group provides 24/7 maintenance works to a growing number of key hard rock miners.
“This contract is significant to PJL Group in that it provides a long-term pipeline of work which will initially secure 12 more jobs in the Orange and Cobar operations. PJL Group has emerged as a market leader in expert maintenance across Eastern Australia and now in the West with a permanent site in Perth.
“Clients are looking to secure long-term service supply to achieve competitive market rates and PJL Group’s Fixed Price Rebuilds provide a major advantage for the entire industry.”
