The Nautitech® QLD Field Support team has had a few changes recently.

We said farewell to Mitch Barnes, our long time Business Development Manager, as he and his family relocated to be closer to extended family.

With Mitch’s departure, Bruce Reilly has been appointed as the Nautitech® QLD State Manager. Bruce is a familiar face at Nautitech® and has been involved with underground mining for over 16 years. Bruce has previous experience with an accredited AS3800 overhaul workshop and brings a great deal of field knowledge to his new role.

Trent Rawlins joined Nautitech® a few months ago and has previously worked extensively in open cut coal and the mining construction industry in Western Australia. His more recent experience is with Hay Point Coal Terminal and other sites around the Bowen basin.

Jesse Eggins is our latest recruit, having joined us just last month. Jesse has 8 years’ experience in underground mining and extensive experience with AS3800 installations, inspections and overhauls. Jesse’s previous roles have included Hay Point Coal Terminal as well as Broadmeadows.

At Nautitech®, we aim to give our customers a competitive advantage by ensuring that their equipment operates at optimum performance and meets the high safety standards set by the industry.

Our team can provide assistance with methane monitoring systems, underground communications, IS lights, HD and Thermal Cameras, as well as Ex d displays and enclosures.
