The team at Tyree Transformers continue to grow our business with the number of people we employ in Australian and New Zealand operations increasing by 60 permanent employees in the past year. This continued growth has also enabled us to increase our training positions with a total of 5 new apprentices and graduates commencing in 2018 at the Tyree Transformers operations at Mittagong in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales.
“The Tyree Transformer’s operations continue to grow year on year and we are very proud to be creating long term employment opportunities for the young and long term unemployed from the regions in which we operate. The team at Tyree have a proud history of training skilled workers, tradespeople & engineers and this year’s graduate intake will go on to provide their skills to the Australian community for the next generation.” said Keian Barnard, Tyree Group CEO. “In addition to training within our businesses, each year up to 50% of our annual profits are gifted by the Tyree Foundation toward engineering education and medical research which we are all proud of at Tyree. Training and education are firmly embedded in the Tyree Group’s DNA and operating principles to ensure the ongoing legacy of our founder Sir William Tyree and the Tyree family.”
