Our New Line Up

on Jul 25, 2018 in Uncategorized

Grampians Excavations enters a new era with the company announcing its acquisition earlier this month by leading Melbourne-based civil construction company Civilex. The recent acquisition means trading as usual for Grampians Excavations with plans to further support, develop and expand its civil capability and scope in regional Victoria. 2018 may be half over but we are delighted to announce a new era for our growing construction family with a new line up of companies: Civilex, Conset, and Grampians Excavations. Existing as “cousin entities” for over a decade, Civilex and Conset have now formally merged, with Civilex also acquiring Stawell-based company Grampians Excavations. The consolidation of these three entities better positions our company for growth within the state and civil engineering and construction industries. As a company, Grampians Excavations closely aligns with Civilex’s diverse range of infrastructure clients in both the private and government sectors and further complements the myriad of Civilex projects presently delivered. The acquisition provides Civilex immediate access to its large fleet of specialist excavation and earthmoving equipment, and – most importantly – some of the most experienced regional operators in the industry. Grampians Excavations Founders Jim and Karen Leithhead established the business in the 1990s in Stawell. The acquisition will see the Leithhead family retain 25% shareholding and Jim will continue to manage the day to day business. The Civilex Directors – Joe Bartolo, Ray Dando, and Andrew Fairbairn – alongside Jim, will focus on expanding the company in preparedness for Victoria’s largest infrastructure boom.

Despite these changes, Civilex Managing Director Joe Bartolo says the core business and project operations of Grampians Excavations will remain unchanged. Last week, Civilex Directors and key staff traveled to Stawell to meet current Grampians Excavations employees in person and to answer any questions they may have had regarding the recent acquisition. Civilex would like to thank the Grampians Excavations team for a great turnout at both the Melbourne and Stawell meetups and we look forward to working...

Civilex Victoria acquires Grampians Excavations.

on Jul 1, 2018 in Uncategorized

Civilex is excited to announce their recent acquisition of Grampians Excavations. The well-established Stawell-based company has over 25 years’ experience in the civil construction industry providing earthworks and civil construction services in both regional Victoria and inner suburbs of Melbourne. Founders Jim and Karen Leithhead established the business in the 1990s in Stawell. This acquisition will see the Leithhead family retain 25% shareholding and Jim will continue manage the day to day business.  The Civilex Directors, alongside Jim, will focus on expanding the company in preparedness for Victoria’s largest infrastructure boom. “We’re excited to embark on a new journey with Civilex. Today our regional business opens a door which will result in a multitude of opportunities for regional growth, expansion of our business and furthering the expertise development in our people,” says Jim Leithhead. As a company, Grampians Excavations closely aligns with Civilex’s diverse range of infrastructure clients in both the private and government sectors, and further complements the myriad of Civilex projects presently delivered. The acquisition provides Civilex immediate access to its large fleet of specialist excavation and earthmoving equipment, and – most importantly – some of the most experienced regional operators in the industry. Joe Bartolo says, “Jim’s connection with the local community and his hard work in building Grampians Excavations over the past 25 years is evidenced by his business success, legacy and the people working for him. We’re thrilled to invest in Jim’s business to further support, develop and expand Grampians Excavations and together foster an employer of choice culture well into the future.” Following the July 1 acquisition Grampians Excavations will be known as Grampians Excavations Pty Ltd, and the change in name will be reflected in a new company logo. Despite these changes, Joe Bartolo says the core business and project operations of Grampians Excavations will remain unchanged. “July 1 will see Grampians Excavations continue operating like any other day. Most importantly Civilex is wholly committed to maintaining the people-focussed culture Jim and his team have established. We look forward to providing Grampians Excavations access to resources and opportunities that further establish Grampians Excavations’ reputation as a contractor of choice in regional Victoria.” The acquisition is expected to assist in Grampians Excavations growth...
