It’s no surprise Holmwood Highgate CEO Wade Mellish and Logan City Councillor Cr Jon Raven hit it off . . . they’re both passionate about creating local jobs and boosting the Logan economy.

Holmwood Highgate, a third-generation Aussie business, is a world leader in the design and manufacture of bulk liquid storage and transportation systems.

Cr Raven, who chairs the Council’s Planning, Economic Development and Environment Committee, got to witness firsthand the big goals they are kicking, particularly in the defence industry space.

Wade and his team played an integral role in World Fuels tender for JP8190, delivered 30 Mobile Tactical Refuelling Modules for the Australian Defence Force and works with Rheinmetall to deliver fuel and water modules for Defence’s fleet of logistics trucks.

To top it off, Holmwood Highgate was awarded a ‘Made in Queensland 4’ Grant to introduce robotics into the manufacture of transport units for commercial and military applications.
