Our Commitment to:
Norfolk Group operates from over 50 major locations throughout Australia, New Zealand and Vietnam. The scale of Norfolk’s operations ensure that mission-critical projects can be comprehensively resourced by approximately 3,000 in-house, expert technicians, engineers and support staff, supported by a network of subcontractors to extend our resources where necessary.
The ability to generate skilled workforce teams across such broad geographic areas means that we have the capacity to undertake and resource large and complex international projects, as well as service remote and diverse operations across Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific area.
Disciplined project management means our teams deliver on-time and on-budget with transparent accountability through our management information systems. We integrate our operations with customers’ systems for efficient management of projects while allowing the customer to maintain control on approvals and expenditure.
