In 1993 Australia was a very different place to work in, Paul Keating was prime minister, Essendon defeated Carlton to win the 97th VFL/AFL premiership and the precursor to Bostech Drilling Australia, was registered as a new company. With experience stretching 20 years, we have survived three economic downturns, and seen the best and worst that the industry has to offer. Safety has been a consistent factor that must be maintained if a company is to survive.
