Qube’s new operations in Papua New Guinea have passed with flying colours, according to company logistics director John Digney.

Digney toured the LCR Group facilities for the first time since Qube acquired the mining and infrastructure services company for $135 million last month.

LCR provides lift-and-shift materials handling solutions across Australia and PNG, "driven by innovation with a strong focus on safety first", Qube notes.

"I have been very impressed with the LCR operations after my visit this week to their PNG sites," Digney says.

"In talking with the various members of the LCR team, the company's single-minded focus on safety first is strongly evident throughout their entire business."

At the time of acquisition, Qube noted the deal was a significant addition to its portfolio, providing an ability to deliver enhanced broad spectrum mining and industrial services to its existing and future customers.

With depots in Port Moresby and Lae, LCR is able to service PNG and also out to the Pacific Islands "with reliability and efficiency", Qube adds.

"LCR is well-known and respected within PNG, operating in a rapidly growing industrial and mining service business since 2009."
