Encon builds on past experience

After 14 years of working together through the ranks at two of Western Australia’s largest construction companies, Mark Kepplinger and Mike Van Dongen decided it was time to establish their own business.

The pair, who previously held roles at construction firms Jaxon and Doric, founded Encon two months ago and have since built a pipeline of work within the construction industry across residential and commercial building, as well as providing project management and consultancy services.

Despite tough market conditions and following the collapse of several residential construction businesses including Builton earlier this year and high-end builder Quattro Homes in late 2016, Mr Van Dongen said Encon had identified a niche opportunity it could serve well.
