Mighty River Power…It was a pleasure to work with the team at (CMS) from the outset. The job in the Condenser was never going to be a straightforward job but with the collaborative effort from (CMS) and the MRP team a practical solution to the task was formed and the job was completed to a high standard.

…on many occasions it was mentioned to me by various individuals how impressed they were with the way your guys conducted themselves while on our site. Dennis I would just like to say it was a pleasure to have work with you and your team during the shut.

Lucas Engineering & Construction Pty Ltd“Contract Mechanical provided specialist ASME IX Pressure Welding labour for the 2011 Annual Shutdown at Visy Pulp & Paper at Tumut, NSW. Due to a sudden scope increase the labour was required at short notice, however Contract Mechanical were able to respond to this demand and still provide a crew of very high standard.

Over the course of the 10 days that the crew was on site, they were assigned a very diverse range of jobs throughout the mill, and quickly became one of the sought after resources within the larger Boilers Shutdown Labour on site. Many of the more difficult welding jobs were left for this crew.

The staff involved were extremely capable and possessed initiative to directly uplift permits and liaise with production staff to complete their tasks, making the management role effortless.

All tasks assigned to them were completed ahead of time and to a very high standard, so much so that some of the Head Contractors pressure welding apprentices were rapidly reassigned to TA roles alongside to observe and learn, such was the calibre of the crew sent.

The crew had a good level of oversight from Contract Mechanical management, who were regularly in touch to ensure the crew and client were well supported.

I look forward to the next opportunity to engage their services again.”

Orica New Zealand Ltd“Hi Dennis,

I just wanted to say thank you for all the preparation work and freight organising you and rob did for the Fiji trip. The trip was a great success and we got through a heap of work in the four days we were on site. Having everything made up, delivered and ready to go, made all the difference. I would say that 95% of all the planned work was completed plus a lot of unplanned work as well.

Please pass on a big thanks to Dan. He was a machine on site and put us ahead of schedule right from the start. Nothing was a problem; he worked with minimal breaks and made the trip a success.  I can see why you recommended him; you're lucky to have such an employee.”
