Bitu-Mill Movember 2016

Bitu-Mill Movember 2016

WOW what a hairy MOVEMBER month we have had!

During the 30days of growth, our Bitu-mill MO Team including David McNamarra, Lachlan Williams, Craig Williams, Ricky Ludwig, Bryce Nichols, Adrian Parisi, Colby Foo, Dwayne Nesbet and Steve Merry have had some fantastic support and looked great while doing it.

The total funds raised for the MOVEMBER Foundation $3245.00

The support, encouragement and assistance with organising the fund raising has been extraordinary.

A very special mention to Boris Stefanov for shaving his MO after 23yrs of ownership, this alone raised $480. A HUGH shout out to all sponsors – Star Training, NAB, Cloud Edge, All Over Kleen, Worldwide Printing, Stay Safe, Barrier Designs, Rocla, Selective, Office Fruit Druit, Nutrimetrics, Take a bite café, Cooper street Café, Bridie O’Reileys, Mars Food, Focus Commications, One for men, Bakers Delight and finally to ALL our the Bitu-mill staff members!

Micro Stabilisation

Micro Stabilisation

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.

Friends of Africa Charity Golf Day

Friends of Africa Charity Golf Day

Bitu-mill has just completed its 9th Annual Charity Golf day and with the funds raised from this year’s event being directed to help build a solar power station at Nzara Hospital South Sudan.

Nzara Hospital was supported by Bitu-mill back in 2013 and is where the Ultrasound Machine that was donated is currently in use for diagnostics in the hospital ER and for out-patient. The Ultrasound is being used by the US Army Medical team where previously no diagnostic services where available. The US Army Doctors have trained a local nurse in the ongoing use of the Ultrasound.

Nzara hospital is about to embark on developing X-ray facilities, being provided by the US Army Medical Corps. To operate the X-ray facility Nzara need a solar power station that will cost $250,000. With $100,000 already allocated to the project Bitu-mill has committed to help raise the shortfall of $150,000 in funds over the coming years.

This is happening with the expert assistance and partnership of renowned hospital architects, Ian Laging and Helen Berthelsen (new Royal Children’s, Epworth) and Martin Dingemanse (www.modelelectrical.com.au) who has a personal and company track record of delivering innovative and sustainable development solutions including his projects in South Sudan.

This was the 9th annual event where we raised $50,288 in cash  To date we have raised in excess of $596,000 as well as a generous donation of a portable Ultra Sound Machine now in use in the clinics in East Africa.

Congratulations to the winning team from Fleet Plant Hire

The golf day remains an annual event through the commitment of our sponsors. Without them it is nothing.
