Mr Twycross has 40 years’ experience in the pipeline industry having worked in South-East Asia, Africa, Central Asia, Middle East, United Kingdom and Australasia.

Specialising in electric power, telecommunications and pipeline infrastructure, the Australian market presents opportunities for Mears in the Australasian region. The company’s head office will be established in Brisbane, Australia, with focus for the first year on the Queensland and northern New South Wales market.
Mears Group President Scot Fluharty said the move would enhance competition in the Australian market.
“Mears is eager to show the Australian market a new and different offering to what they currently have,” Mr Fluharty said.
