Brisbane Key People; passion attracts good people and good clients alike.
What makes a business succeed? RBG knows the answer to this question, put simply, it’s the people!
Indeed, a business cannot function without technology, processes, money and supply but at the foundation of it all is the employees who come together every day to make it work.
In Robert Bird’s words, “at Robert Bird Group, we recognise that passion attracts good people and good clients alike. It is vital to surround yourself with people who strive to push boundaries while keeping safety and sustainability in mind.”
RBG has built and maintained a competitive edge for the past 40 years by hiring staff who are dedicated to engineering, and the pursuit of excellence. We firmly believe in fully understanding a client’s needs and serving these to attain remarkable results.
The Brisbane office has seen countless individuals across the years that have guided colleagues with strong values that align with the business’ own. RBG sincerely thanks all staff, past and present, for joining us and developing robust solutions via innovation, continuous improvement, and benchmarking.
We celebrate our key long-standing staff who have seen most of, if not all, our 40 years in business.
