It all started 19 years ago when Ben packed up and moved to Kalgoorlie from Adelaide to start a new adventure.
He loved the lifestyle of working hard and having a well-deserved beer at the end of the day.
The satisfaction of starting with a blank canvas and achieving a finished product by the end of the day was exhilarating.
From Kalgoorlie Ben packed his tools and traveled around Australia working for a lot of different contractors and concreting business learning different skills and methods along with dealing with different people and situations. We believe that experience is priceless as that knowledge is something money can't buy as there are no official courses or traineeship programs for concreting.
His favorite destination where he worked was Nhulunbuy/Gove in Arnhem Land.
8 years ago Ben took the brave move and began running his own business “Bencrete” in Perth and since then he has come home to Adelaide where he's been operating for 5 years.
Since being back in Adelaide Ben has branched out the business to not just be concreting but the legit one stop shop! Along with concreting, services now include shed installation, retaining walls, lawn installation, and earth moving what a journey so far!!
But the part he's most proud of is the investment in time and training of his team in all the above mentioned aspects of the business. Especially since Covid there has been a massive shortage of skilled workers.
So we have carefully chosen a few younger lads that show initiative, have a “ Can - do” attitude and come to work on time to pass on Ben's priceless knowledge to keep the concreting industry alive. We also teach them life skills and focus on positivity. We believe the sky’s the limit so we install this mindset in our employees too.
We have a tight team and make a point every day to have a laugh and ensure the atmosphere is upbeat and enjoyable no matter what site or project we are working on.
