East Coast Diesel Service was established in late 2005 as a one person operation offering all types of diesel machinery maintenance and repair services to the Bowen Basin mining industry and wider Whitsunday community. In the past ten years East Coast Diesel Service has grown to become a highly skilled professional team.

A close working relationship with many of the leaders of the Australian mining industry has given the team at East Coast the competitive edge. Word of mouth has spread about the quality of workmanship and reliability of the staff and now there is a demand to have them be part of their operational teams. This is an additional benefit to our valued clients, as it offers them an easy cost effective alternative means of recruitment.

East Coast Diesel Service offers family flexible rostering, excellent remuneration rates and a friendly, cohesive team environment. Being an industry specific family orientated company is our point of difference. We enjoy an enviable staff retention rate which has been achieved through mutual respect and the development of an open, enthusiastic, professional workplace. We encourage staff input and provide opportunities for staff training including apprenticeships and on site mentoring. We strongly believe that a business is only as good as its employees. We pride ourselves on being able to attract and retain excellent staff and attribute our success to this.

East Coast Diesel Service has in place policies and procedures to meet all the statutory requirements required of professional organisation and to help guide staff in the preservation of a safe, comfortable working environment.

We are proactive and committed in our approach to OH&S, training, employment, equal opportunity, conduct and environmental issues that arise and have clear guidelines on how to best deal with them. Continual improvement is highly regarded at East Coast so we offer employees opportunities to further their knowledge in many practical and theoretical areas.
