Homegrown Hero: Dwyer Engineering

Case Study: Dwyer Engineering

Location: Harvey

Dwyer Engineering (Dwyer) is a family-owned engineering and construction company specialising in structural steel. Since 1999, Dwyer has successfully assisted their clients in the oil and gas, mining, power, and infrastructure industries.

Besides this, Dwyer can assist with large-scale pipe, mechanical and structural erection on site.

Location, Location, Location

Within the Booming South West Economy Operating within Australia’s strong South West economy has provided Dwyer with accessibility to large-scale projects at their doorstep, including the Harvey Pipe Project (WA Engineering Excellence Award); the Binningup Desalination Plant (Global Water Awards – Desalination Plant of the Year); and Greenbushes Lithium Plant (considered the biggest lithium mine in the world).

Locally-based business opportunities continue to grow with the expansion of the Harvey Region’s Kemerton Strategic Industrial Area (KSIA), home to many of the state’s largest natural resource processor plants. Importantly for Dwyer, proximity equals improved profitability and operating efficiencies.

State Wide Accessibility

Being situated in Harvey’s Industrial Precinct, (metres off the South Western Highway and within 90 minutes of Perth) opens doors to state-wide projects. Oversized loads travelling thousands of kilometres are also no problem for Dwyer through the use of escorted transports.

General Manager Jack Dwyer believes the Harvey Region provides a solid base for the business to service all parts of Australia.

Over the last few years, Dwyer has successfully delivered services and projects for the Cloud Break and Mount Whaleback mines in the Pilbara, and Kimberly’s Argle Diamond Mine. One Stop Shop Dwyer prides itself on being a one stop shop for its client base.

Their workshops are equipped with modern Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines which deliver services for all stages of any large-scale engineering project.

Attracting and Retaining Employees

Well-respected employers, Dwyer takes advantage of the Harvey Region to attract and retain employees who will uphold the company’s mission, vision and values.

They believe the Harvey Region’s many schools, health services, shopping centres, fantastic beaches and great climate play a key role in attracting many workers to relocate their families to work and live in the area, providing Dwyer with a talented and consistent workforce.

Eye on the Future

Dwyer understands that in today’s environment, it is a business’ responsibility to ensure their imprint on the environment is minimised as much as possible.

To reduce their environmental impact, they are continually implementing sustainable initiatives, such as installing solar panels at their Harvey workshop to take advantage of their location’s favourable climate.

The Harvey Region is extremely well positioned within the South West and provides close proximity to two major cities and their associated supply chains and industrial areas. Our future is here.
