Irish Chamber

2018 Finalist - Eire Workforce Solutions

Irish Australian Business Awards Peoples Choice 2018

Harte Group was established by Andrew Harte and today consists of four companies. It all started when I came to Australia in March 2011 at 25 years of age with my wife Denise. I quickly identified a huge shortage of quality labour within the construction industry. I was aware of the amount of skilled personnel coming out to Australia from Ireland and other countries  at the time and decided there was a great opportunity to link these skilled people with companies in Australia. So then in June of that year I set up Eire Workforce Solutions which provides labour hire services.

Our main point of difference at Eire Workforce Solutions is our experience in the civil industry. We use our knowledge of the this industry to train all our recruiters to have a sound knowledge of each specific trade. We now have offices in Melbourne and Sydney.

In 2012 I established Harte Excavations which was a natural extension to Eire Workforce Solutions by providing our clients with access to plant and machinery. Harte Excavations started with 2 excavators which I imported from Ireland. We have continuously added to this fleet over the past 6 years and now have over 30 units of heavy plant which we hire out all over Melbourne.

In 2014, Eire Traffic Services was established which added a traffic control offering to the business. In 2017 I established Harte Civil Vic which completes contract work as a main contractor and brings together the other 3 businesses.

Harte Civil Vic started in 2017 and employs a great team of civil engineers and skilled civil workers and have completed major road projects for local councils and government bodies. Solving our clients problems by offering a one stop shop solution has aided the success of the company by being able to offer a full service and this is what gives us the edge over our competitors.

Harte Group employs 15 office staff and employ a total of 180 Employees. The company has earned the globally recognised ISO accreditation by demonstrating robust systems and management practises.  We have grown to achieve an annual turnover of 18.5 million last financial year and we forecast 30 % growth in revenue this year. Our Vision is to continue this growth while maintaining the excellent reputation we have established.

Our growth story is proof of what a young ambitious team can achieve from small beginnings in a short few years.
