Stella Industrial gets Gorgon boost
Stella Industrial’s project superintendent Colin Gregory and operations development manager Brad Iannello.

Privately-owned Kwinana company Stella Industrial is looking to recruit extra staff after winning its largest contract, on Chevron’s Gorgon gas project.

General manager Darren Iannello said major international contractor CBI Constructors had awarded Stella the contract for painting the giant condensate tanks on Barrow Island.

Mr Iannello said the work would be undertaken over the coming year and was expected to create up to 60 jobs.

Stella was established by the Iannello family in 2010, three years after they sold their original business Total Corrosion Control to UK company Cape plc.

Mr Iannello briefly worked with NSW-based contractor Giovenco Industries, which had been looking to break into WA, before establishing the new business with family members and some of the original TCC backers.

Stella services the mining, oil and gas, construction and maintenance sectors.

It has already been contracted by CB&I to complete the surface treatment coatings for the floor and roof plates of the condensate tanks.

Stella’s other wins include site works at Fortescue Metals Group’s Christmas Creek iron ore mine development.

This work was undertaken at Stella’s Kwinana workshop while the company also has a Gorgon project office at Fremantle.
