National push for protector

AFTER suffering through a tough three to four years of downturn in its key resources market, Kwinana-based Total Corrosion Control is emerging with plans for national domination.

The company has taken on former Electricity Reform Task Force chairman John Hyslop as chairman and hopes that his contacts will help it to break onto the national stage.

The company’s clients include major resource and construction industry players such as Alcoa, Woodside, United KG, BHP Billiton, Clough Engineering and Worsley Alumina.

It has done work in Singapore and in Queensland.

However, TCC general manager Tony Iannello said he believed the company could become a much bigger national player.

He said TCC was offering clients a one-stop shop and a strong safety record.

“There are not that many companies around here that combine their services like we do,” Mr Iannello said.

“We want to find ways to save our clients money.”

The company’s core businesses include insulation, polyurethane foam, asbestos and lead removal, fire proofing, protective coating, rubber lining, scaffolding, asset management, training and rope access.

The rope access part of the business came through some of the jobs TCC was contracted to do. When the job was assessed, ropes were the only means of access that workers had.

Mr Iannello said Mr Hyslop would also help the company achieve its national growth goal through advising on joint ventures and acquisitions.

TCC has an annual turnover of $40 million and employs 350 people.

It started off 20 years ago as an entity part-owned by the Iannello family and the owners of United Construction.

United Construction sold its stake in TCC when it went public. The United share was picked up by FDS, a company owned by Gavin, Brian and David Argyle.

David Argyle is also a director of Christmas Island miner Phosphate Resources Limited.
