MadePartners joins forces with WA’s GBS Railroad and Mining

MadePartners has announced a new strategic partnership with Perth-based GBS Railroad and Mining, poised to provide world-class infrastructure quality services to West Australia’s rail, resources and energy sectors.

MadePartners is a widely respected provider of solutions across the continuum of large infrastructure project delivery in road, rail, mining, manufacturing, and defence across the world.

GBS Railroad and Mining Services is a leading supplier to the Australian railroad and mining industries, specialising in providing components for locomotives and freight cars.

MadePartners CEO, Paul Belcher, says that the relationship will ensure better procurement outcomes and improved performance of compliance critical infrastructure assets.

“The relationship with GBS will bring powerful synergies to reduce risk and optimise performance of infrastructure assets over the course of their lives,” he said.

GBS Managing Director Glenn Bell welcomed the opportunity to leverage ‘the wealth of experience and expertise that both companies bring to this new arrangement.’

MadePartners Board and leadership team have worked with Glenn for over 30 years and have an overlapping client base. This means MadePartners can provide a more integrated offering, particularly with the post-purchase phase that includes delivery, commissioning, maintenance, and asset disposal.

By implementing effective quality management of infrastructure, businesses are better equipped to meet regulatory compliance standards, minimise defects, reduce waste, and optimise processes, ultimately leading to cost savings.

“Having a sound Quality Platform for your infrastructure from inception through to disposal is a key element to optimise asset performance,” says Paul.

“The relationship we have formalised with GBS will round out our service offering in WA and provide tangible end-to-end benefits for all of our infrastructure clients.”
