Emeco Group and Kuuwa are proud to announce that they have entered a strategic framework to extend market access. 

Emeco is pleased to support Kuuwa’s growth by extending its access to equipment and jointly participating in large scale projects.   

This strategic growth framework enables Emeco and Kuuwa to facilitate better outcomes for Indigenous communities and businesses.

“This relationship is a game changer for Indigenous businesses servicing the resource industry,” says Wes Chapman, Managing Director at Kuuwa. “We have created a sustainable model that demonstrates that it is possible for Indigenous businesses to successfully enter the supply chain whilst supporting and contributing to Indigenous communities.”

“We are always looking for ways to advance the way we do business and delivering results to our customers is our priority,” says Ian Testrow, CEO, at Emeco. “Partnering with Kuuwa opens doors for us to be able to support Indigenous businesses and communities whilst providing additional solutions to our customers.

There are many other benefits we intend to explore as part of this relationship, some of those include:

  • Creating pathways for more Indigenous businesses to participate in the resource industry and to imagine what is possible
  • Genuine flow through for mining companies to achieve their Reconciliation Action Plans (RAP)
  • Creation of training and job opportunities for Indigenous people
  • Additional resources are now available for legitimate ESG outcomes for mining companies that engage with Kuuwa and Emeco
