The values of CPH are unchanging.
In 2004, founder Colin Ritson purchased two Caterpillar 637 scrapers and set them to work on an urban development project in Sydney NSW. From there, the operation moved to agricultural earthworks projects in central western NSW. As more scrapers were added to the fleet, CPH (then known as Champion Plant Hire) took on civil works as a sub-contractor to Abigroup on the Wodonga Bypass (Hume Highway) project and the Karuah to Buladelah (Pacific Highway) project.
CPH’s growing reputation as a reliable and cost-effective contractor then created an opportunity to work as a sub-contractor to Leighton Contractors on the South West Transport Corridor (Centenary Highway) project in Brisbane.
In 2008 the next chapter of company growth began with a move into the coalfields of Queensland’s Bowen Basin. Beginning at BMA’s Goonyella Riverside Mine, CPH initially carried out topsoil and rehabilitation works for HMP Constructions, followed by works on a tailings dam raise for Watpac. As CPH’s reputation for quality, hassle-free delivery grew, opportunities arose to contract directly to mining giants BHP and Thiess on mines including Lake Vermont, Peak Downs and Saraji. Today, CPH continues to focus on work in the Bowen Basin but welcomes opportunities in any location.
