Professional Golfer Aaron Pike hits so well blind folded he is considering playing the up and coming MMC Northern Territory PGA Championships blind folded.
The MMC Northern Territory PGA Championship is on the 16th-19th of August at Palmerston Golf Course.
Come along and see more than 100 of Australia’s best professionals play the biggest State PGA event in Australia! MMC have taken the naming sponsorship for the NT PGA Championships for 2018.
One of the fantastic things about this is that through Cazalys this sponsorship is far reaching into the community. Cazalys are a not for profit organisation, providing sponsorship and funding for over 50 sporting clubs throughout to NT, including NTFL and NTFL clubs, NTRL, Motorsports, Pistol Clubs, Cricket Clubs, Hockey Clubs, Rugby Union Clubs, Soccer and even 8 Ball. On top of this Cazalys also support the Palmerston Junior Golf Clinic and the Palmerston and Humpty Doo Veterans Golf, who MMC have been sponsoring consecutively for more than 20 years.
MMC is a 100% NT owned business, who is passionately Territorian and proud to see this sponsorship flow throughout the Northern Territory community. 

The construction of the $30million Palmerston Police Station is now underway and supporting close to 200 local jobs for Territorians. This includes MMC who has the contract for all the steel.

Over the past year MMC has seen an increase in activity in the Defence world.
Already completing structural steel for Shoal Bay and Robertson Barracks we now have orders for shelters for several training areas in the Northern Territory. Current enquires with defence wharf remediation, upgrades and also building works are currently in motion.
Alongside the many large opportunities with both Australian Defence investment and the US Defence investment, the future of Defence contracting in the NT is looking promising.
Investment in Defence it makes Sense!

MMC have continued our apprentice programme with the employment of 4 new apprentices within the last year in Certificate III in Fabrication.

This however is not the limit we expect to employ this year, aiming to employ 2 or 3 others whilst we already have 9 apprentices employed.

We are also pleased to advise we have recently graduated Jason May, he is now an excellent fully qualified Tradesmen working within several areas of MMC. Clarence Pumpa is also soon to finish his apprenticeship off, a few more books to sign off and he too will be a fully qualified tradesman, he has also shown great skill in specialised pipework and fabrication.

We look forward to seeing what else they achieve within their futures at MMC. 

 
Showcasing MMC’s diversity, we recently supplied our labour hire services as well as managing specific scopes for a shutdown at Pine Creek’s power station.

A shout out to Todd Geddes, MMC’s resident Rubber Liner.

Recently MMC has invested in 2 more trainee rubber liners as we continue to grow & service our clients. Here’s a project recently completed by Todd and trainee Dwayne, they did a great job in getting this done and dispatched in time!
