Congratulations to the August 2023 Business of the Month; Mine Spec Industries…
Straight out from meeting the owners of Mine Spec, I was impressed about how passionate they are about their business but also just as much about Whyalla. Jason and Stefanie Tatchell are inspiring and dedicated people who like to talk about how positive the future is for both business and employment in Whyalla.
Mine Spec Industries (MSI) has been operating since 2014 but that’s not entirely where it all started. Jason has been working in the hire, maintenance, and transport industry since a young age after starting his apprenticeship with MJ Sherrin Plant Hire in 1990 and has gained extensive experience ever since. Stef started her career in the hire industry in 2007, however she came with her own extensive experience in the Industrial and Material Handling roles having worked at the Steelworks. Together, they have over 50 years of experience between them to show just how capable they are.
MSI is encouraged to have long term contracts and work agreements and can be considered a foundational company that is dedicated to staying in Whyalla. They currently employ 6 local people but are hoping to expand on this with their recent purchase of another property on McBryde Terrace. The new property will offer a larger office and workshop capacity to deliver on their ever-growing clientele.
In keeping with the community spirit, MSI support local suppliers and providers and return what they can back into Whyalla. They are proud sponsors of local community and sporting groups who they consider to be the volunteers that hold communities together.
In Jason and Stef’s words, ‘We’re in Whyalla for the long haul, and we’re so very happy to be a part of such an energetic and thriving City. Can’t wait for what the next few years bring’!
Please remember, shop local, shop Whyalla…
