A MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, DEAN MEHMET

At Hastings Deering we take great pride in our history. Since being founded in Sydney in 1932, we have been delivering premium quality products and services.

We are a long-standing partner of Caterpillar, the world’s leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment.

Hastings Deering’s Papua New Guinea (PNG) journey began in 1949, when our operations started supporting the construction and forestry industries. The company also provided machinery to support the local agricultural, government and marine industry sectors.

Today, we continue to supply equipment and services across a range of industries – these include mining, construction, forestry, materials handling and the government.

We have played an active part in enhancing Papua New Guinea by providing improved infrastructure, better access to minerals and energy, improving the flow of resources and creating training and employment opportunities for the people of PNG and their communities.

Hastings Deering PNG provides world-class products and services, whatever your needs are, we have an extensive range and always aim to exceed our customer’s expectations.

We are a proud employer of 350 people across seven sites in Papua New Guinea - Kimbe, Kokopo, Lae, Lihir, Port Moresby, and Tabubil.

Hastings Deering PNG also proudly supports the communities in which we live and work. The company is a platinum sponsor of Buk bilong Pikinini, which helps increase literacy rates in Papua New Guinea by setting up children's libraries in community based localities.

We supply premium new or used equipment, rental products, servicing, maintenance, parts, training, finance and insurance – quite simply, we are the one-stop shop for our valuable PNG customers.

Technology is also an exciting space for Hastings Deering PNG. It allows us to make significant improvements to our customers’ ability to plan preventive maintenance, reduce downtime, and ensure the best out of your machine.

Moving ahead, we will continue to use the best of our technical abilities to keep our customers safely working, keep costs down, provide the best support services and network in PNG and keep businesses running as efficiently as possible.

Hastings Deering PNG has been an active partner to the people of Papua New Guinea for more than 60 years – our plans are to continue this successful partnership for many more years to come.
