Emigrated to Australia in 1966 as a single 19 year old with limited command of English. He found himself employed as a Boilermaker for MIM in Mount Isa. After proving himself with his “Aussie Mates” he met Tony Bosso and they established a small company to undertake steel fabrication on a contract basis. The rest, as they say, is history. The projects became bigger, more complex and diversified. The success of the business enabled them to expand to Mackay and become involved in the Coal expansion in Central Queensland. Finally to Brisbane and the commencement of a significant Building Development arm.
At 10 years of age, emigrated to Australia in 1958 as part of a family relocation. Tony was raised in Perth, WA. Tony commenced work with Humes Ltd in Perth then moved to Mount Isa where he met Gilberto. They formed a strong and enduring relationship based on trust and work ethic. Tony remained in Mount Isa and increased the business scope whilst Gilberto relocated to Mackay to start the Central Queensland operations. Tony has maintained the control of the Mount Isa operations during the intervening period.
