InfraBuild supporting local business to build sustainable future
A mentoring initiative is helping build business capability and secure a sustainable future for a local Indigenous company.
In February 2021, InfraBuild was approached by Indigenous Supply Australia (ISA) to partner with them to supply steel casing to drilling teams servicing the mining sector.
Established in 2020, ISA is a majority indigenous-owned and operated Australian business, supplying industrial consumables and services such as transport to the mining, oil and gas and construction sectors. ISA is also assisting companies with cultural awareness and sensitivity training and how to build capability and capacity in local communities and indigenous businesses.
With 100 years continuous operations and Australia’s largest vertically integrated long steel products manufacturer, we have been sharing our extensive knowledge and experience with ISA on things such as pricing structures, managing supply chain and inventory demands and marketing their products and services. InfraBuild is also assisting ISA by connecting them to other companies in the sector to enable them to offer a more complete package.
InfraBuild Steel Centre State Manager (SA and NT), Barry Kelly, said the strategic partnership with ISA aligns with InfraBuild’s Reconciliation Action Plan to strengthen relationships with First Nations communities and support new initiatives and partnerships.
“Our support of ISA extends beyond a commercial arrangement as we are supporting their aspiration to deliver long-term growth and sustainability – developing career pathways and improving economic outcomes,” he said.
“This flows on to support local communities through programs aimed at improving health and education outcomes – something that is important to both of us.”
