Norwest Crane Hire Pty Ltd is based in the Northwest of Western Australia, predominantly in Port Hedland and Exmouth.
Founder and Managing Director of Norwest Crane Hire Pty Ltd, Bernie Johnson, has over 25 years experience in the crane, construction, oil and gas and mining industries. He commenced his Pilbara crane career in 1995 at Brambles Industrial Services (BIS) as the regional Northwest Operations Manager in Port Hedland. Mr Johnson then took up the position of Northwest Operations Manager with Boom Logistics from 2004 until January 2008. Norwest Crane Hire Pty Ltd was then founded in partnership with his long-time partner Toni Jessop.
Norwest purchased Exmouth Crane & Truck Hire in January 2008 servicing the Exmouth community with its crane and waste removal requirements. By 2010 demand for Norwest Crane Services within the Pilbara area resulted in a base being established in Port Hedland and several management and administration changes resulted in 2010 and 2011:
In 2010 company growth led to the appointment of a Manager to oversee Exmouth operations later that year, a Manager to oversee Port Hedland operations. At this time Perth became the new administration support site. During this period Norwest Crane Hire has continued to expand its fleet to include late model, mine compliant cranes, trucks and equipment. The fleet acquisition strategy and sound policies and procedures has resulted in continued and sustained business growth servicing clients in the construction and mining industries.
