Bitu-mill would like to welcome the addition of a new business unit that we have started in July – Micro Stabilisation.
Micro Stabilisation is essentially a spot-fixer for individual patches of road using the existing materials mixed with innovative binding products and recycling it to create a smooth, sustainable and above all, safe road surface.
Rather than closing road lanes and creating major disruption, Micro-stabilisation is designed around smaller plant (bobcats with mixing heads) and equipment that can undertake in-situ stabilised patches within a targeted environment and provide a quick set-up through to completion.
The new division will be headed up by Des Smith and ably assisted by Clinton Syme as the team Leader, Jeremy Harman and two ground staff.
The operation will be based out of Echuca and is focusing on works in Regional Victoria and Regional Southern NSW. Des and his team have all come from Citywide where this Micro Stabilisation business has been operating successfully for several years and has been subcontracting to Rural Civil during that time. We have also acquired Citywides fleet which included two trucks, two bobcats with grader and mixer attachments many attachments, a tractor, a roller and utes.
We have hit the ground running with projects already in hand and will start works in August in the Northern Region for VicRoads.
This new division will further enhance Bitu-mill Civil capabilities and we look forward to what Des and his team can bring to the business.
