Schlam 500 Employee and Counting

As Schlam celebrates the addition of their 500th team member, they mark a significant milestone in their journey. This achievement not only showcases Schlam’s growth as a prominent employer but also highlights their steadfast dedication to nurturing talent and creating opportunities for individuals to thrive.

From the outset, Schlam has prioritised the cultivation of a diverse and skilled workforce, and reaching this milestone underscores their unwavering commitment to supporting their employees.

To truly grasp the significance of this remarkable achievement, one need only look back to the humble beginnings of Schlam in Yarloop in 1996, where Barry Schlam, along with just two others, laid the foundation for what would become a thriving enterprise.

At the age of 25, his son Ryan Schlam took the helm of the family business, taking ownership from his parents and steering it towards growth and success. Under his leadership, the company expanded from a team of 5 to 50 employees, marking a pivotal moment when they secured their first official contract with Newmont in 2009.

Only 15 years later, welcoming the 500th employee is not just about reaching a numerical target, but it symbolises the countless personal journeys and transformations of individuals who have found a home within our Schlam family.

Whether our people are innovative Engineers or dedicated Technical Specialists, each employee brings a unique set of skills, expertise, and passion that contributes to Schlam’s ongoing evolution and success.

Each member of the Schlam team plays a crucial role in driving the company’s success, and this landmark moment is a reflection of their collective hard work, resilience, and unwavering dedication to excellence.

Through their steadfast dedication to fostering a culture of growth, learning, and collaboration, Schlam continues to attract top talent from a variety of industries and empower them to excel both personally and professionally. Looking ahead, Schlam remains committed to expanding our team with individuals who share our drive for excellence, innovation, and pushing boundaries.

With each new addition, Schlam is excited to witness the collective impact tour employees will have in propelling the company to even greater heights.
