2023; A year of triumphs

2023; A year of triumphs

This year, we set ambitious goals for our business, and thanks to the collective commitment to excellence by our outstanding employees, we have propelled forward, allowing us to further establish ourselves as leaders in our industry.

From successfully launching innovative products to forging new strategic partnerships, and the expansion of our business into North America, each accomplishment has been a testament to the dedication and expertise of the Schlam family. 

In March of this year, Schlam’s Chairman David Haslett took on the Group CEO role, which has been a fantastic development for the business, with David being instrumental in forming and guiding its new medium-term strategy. 

Over the past 12 months, we’ve witnessed a remarkable transformation in our people business, now known as Schlam Cru, under the leadership of Mat Rigby. The recent accolades of winning both WA’s Employer of the Year at the Rise Business Awards and Employer of Choice at the Australian Business Awards speak volumes about Cru’s exceptional commitment to its people.

With Managing Director, Hendrik Mueller, at the helm, the Schlam Payload division experienced a transformational year, with significant product sales achievements. We reached major milestones, delivering the 300th Hercules Dump Body for BHP-WAIO, and building the 100th Barracuda Bucket since our inception. We expect more achievements in the near future, as we are fast approaching the delivery of our 2000th Hercules Dump Body. 

Our investment in new technology, plant and equipment will help us become safer, more efficient and provide new career opportunities for our people. Thanks to the dedicated Payload team, the division is thriving and poised for further growth in 2024.

Coming off the back of an incredible year, we want to express our appreciation to each and every Schlam employee for their hard work throughout 2023. It has been an extraordinary period of growth for Schlam, and we owe it to you for our exceptional success.

We acknowledge and appreciate the loyalty of the long-standing staff members who have continued to serve Schlam throughout the years, and we’d like to welcome the wave of new starters who have recently joined the organisation. Thank you for choosing Schlam to learn and grow in your career.

We would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the families and loved ones who provide unwavering support to our dedicated workforce. Your selflessness and encouragement from afar do not go unnoticed.

Looking ahead, we are confident that we will surpass even greater milestones in the years to come. Together, we will embrace new challenges, explore new pathways of growth, and continue to shape the future of our industry.

Thank you once again for your support throughout 2023.
