Duke Contracting Australia Pty Ltd is a Gold Coast based family company founded by Nick and Denise Duke in 1999.
Having completed his apprenticeship as a Diesel Mechanic Nick set out on his own at a young age as an owner operator of a small earthmoving business and has been involved in both the earthmoving and transport industries continually to this day.
It is a long held belief of Nick’s that making a good first impression is one of the strongest tenants of running a good business but you must also be able to back this up with a reliable, efficient operation. It is this philosophy that ensures only the best equipment is used such as Caterpillar, Komatsu and Hitachi and that it is maintained to the highest standards both mechanically and aesthetically.
With Nick maintaining a prominent “hands on” and “open door” approach to every aspect of the business, be it daily operations, R&M requirements or operator placements Duke Contracting Australia has been able to grow within the industry while maintaining a reputation for providing quality equipment with highly experienced operators at competitive rates.
To help maximise productivity and minimise downtime for both ourselves and for our clients we have our own float capable of carrying all our equipment. This has definite advantages in enabling us to guarantee delivery times to site and to relocate equipment at minimal notice. Nicks experience and ability with the road transport side of the business often see him personally delivering the equipment to site keeping him at the “pointy end” and once again on top of all aspects of the operation.
