AusGroup Limited (“AusGroup”) is pleased to announce that subsidiary AGC Industries (“AGC”) has been awarded a three year maintenance and shutdown support contract by BHP Nickel West (“BHPNW”) for all Nickel West assets across Western Australia including Mt Keith, Leinster, Kwinana and Kalgoorlie.

This multi-disciplinary services contract will be supported by AusGroup’s specialist rope access capability.
