Family-owned and operated Townsville signage company, Gracie Signs, is the newest business to benefit from the Adani Carmichael project.
The company has just completed a series of security and safety signage, which will be used at the Carmichael Mine site to help keep the workforce safe. Adani Mining CEO Lucas Dow said local businesses will see the flow on effect of the Carmichael project.
“We encourage businesses in north and central Queensland to register their details on our Supplier Portal, EconomX, just like Gracie Signs have done,” Dow said.
“We have jobs and opportunities for local businesses to benefit from the Carmichael Project but we need the Queensland Government to get onboard and give us the green light so we can deliver.”
Gracie Signs Owner Geoff Gracie said he is the second generation of his family to run the business.
“We’ve owned and been operating in Townsville for more than 45 years,” Gracie said.
“We welcomed the opportunity to work with Adani and look forward to future work as the project progresses.”
The Carmichael project will see a number of suppliers and contractors required.
Adani will draw on the skilled businesses and workforces from Townsville, Rockhampton, the Isaac region, Mackay, Bowen, Whitsundays and regional centres such as Toowoomba to deliver these work packages.
