About the Gladstone Engineering Alliance

Gladstone Engineering Alliance exists to strengthen Gladstone business and industry, and enable continued sustainable economic growth in the Gladstone Region. A not-for-profit, Incorporated Association, GEA has been operating since 2003.

Formed initially as a response to the growing need in the Central Queensland region for the minerals / chemical processing supply chain to strengthen capability and become globally competitive, GEA has since expanded its focus to include current and future industry sectors including; Coal, LNG, Steel, Nickel, Construction and Services.

The organisation is responsive to the needs of industry in the region, and provides a strong network of member companies seeking to provide engineering, manufacturing and support services to clients in both the private and public sector.

GEA is self sustained financially through GEA membership, managed functions and events. The GEA advocates for Corporate and Government funding on a project-by-project basis to the benefit of its members and the community generally.  

Predominately, GEA members provide engineering, construction and maintenance services to major industrial plants in Central Queensland and the coal mines to the west. These industries are owned by major global players and GEA sees the importance for its members to work towards meeting Worlds Best Practice.

GEA facilitates the collection and dissemination of information which is crucial for assessing the specific needs to be met before developing and delivering projects, training and networking events to our stakeholders.

GEA is committed to promoting the use of productivity improvement, safety, quality and environmental programs within stakeholder businesses.
