We are very sorry to announce that one of the founders of our business, Graham Banks has passed away.
Graham joined his brothers in the business at its outset in 1976, becoming Plant and Transport Director. He had a major input to the growth of the mining operations which became the foundation for the development of the Group. Under Graham’s direction and vision plant, transport and mining operations grew rapidly to become the standard setter for the industry, and to provide the foundations for the Group’s expansion into Property and Renewables.
Graham was a big-hearted man with a generous and pleasant disposition. He was popular both at work and in his community with a down to earth approach to life and to relationships. He had a very friendly and effective way of doing business.
After retirement Graham took his golf clubs to Thailand where he enjoyed his later years and passed away on Wednesday morning from a suspected heart attack.
Graham leaves six children, Joanne, Gary, Nicola, Victoria, Laura, Lewis and seven grandchildren.
Our thoughts are with his family and his many friends.
