JW Cross has been involved in earthmoving and plant hire in the Bunbury Region of Western Australia since 1968. The company was founded by Jack Cross and is currently run by his four sons. In recent years the business has expanded through diversification, whereby sections of the existing business separated off to develop in their particular environments. JW Cross Maintenance, Picton Civil, Peel Resource Recovery, Cross Resource Management and West Coast Waste are now the operational businesses.
JW Cross Maintenance has become a trusted, reliable and community-conscious company supplying some of WA’s major resource and government bodies.
JW Cross was active in the construction phase of Worsley Alumina and has worked with Worsley every step of the way, through each expansion phase to everyday maintenance, to the recent Pipeline from Wellington Dam.
JW Cross Maintenance was created in 2012 specialising in Civil Works, Site Services and Maintenance plus Rail Maintenance and Construction. Thus continuing with our previous 30 years of service under JW Cross & Sons banner. We have recently added a Training section to the business as we continue to expand our areas of expertise.
JW Cross Maintenance uphold a high level of safety standards in our work places. This is important as much of our work is carried out in areas where high standards of accreditation are required, like mine sites.
All our plant operators are accredited with national operator certificates of competency and white cards. All employees are screened and we have an ongoing training program. We actively support a policy of zero harm in the workplace.
A standout achievement in safety was 7 years of operation without an injury that required more than first aid in a challenging environment (Active Brownfield Alumina Refinery). This was achieved through a strong focus on safety practices across the organization.
We understand the effects our work may have on the environment and we take every precaution to make certain our employees work within legislative guidelines. We endeavor to minimise all environmental impact on our work sites.
The company is always looking at ways to recycle materials and to use these when appropriate. One area of recycling is our crushed concrete product and recycled screened sand.
A large range of plant, predominantly Caterpillar & Komatsu, are available for either hourly hire or contract work. Our machinery is in excellent mechanical condition, due to regular maintenance by our in house mechanical team.
Family business; JW Cross was founded in WA’s southwest in 1960 by Jack Cross then later run by his four sons. Jack’s passion for industrial construction saw him capitalise on Government project opportunities in the early years. A range of industrial maintenance services grew steadily from heavy machinery acquisitions and expertise.
All our business owners reside in and around the Bunbury area and are therefore aware of and concerned with local issues.
Some of the local projects and organisations that JW Cross Maintenance has contributed to are:
DARDANUP BULL & BARREL FESTIVAL
WOLLASTON LIONS CLUB FUNDRAISING TRAIN
BUNBURY ROWING CLUB
ST JOHN OF GOD CANCER UNIT
and CHARITABLE DONATIONS TO DISASTER FUNDS.
