Teck Global solution powers growth

When Teck Global founder David Zucaro lost his job due to the collapse of his former employer, Forge Group, he saw an opportunity to fill a niche in the power systems and electrical engineering market.

Mr Zucaro said the status quo in the sector was for a firm to provide consulting and engineering or to manufacture power distribution projects.

To set Teck Global apart, Mr Zucaro set about doing both – covering entire projects from start to practical completion.

The company, which is the 2019 Rising Stars medium-sized business category winner, designs, engineers and manufactures electrical kiosk substations, switch rooms, integrated power transformers and custom control panels for the resources sector, growing from a two-person operation at its launch in 2014, to 35 staff in 2019.

Teck Global’s comprehensive approach has resulted in the company manufacturing, supplying and installing power systems for some of the world’s biggest resources groups, including BHP, Rio Tinto and Roy Hill.

Mr Zucaro said Teck Global’s next phase of growth would be driven by a move to new premises – a 3,000 square metre office and workshop facility to cater for its rapidly growing workforce.

“Our mission is to be the leader in electrical systems integration and engineering, and expand nationally and internationally,” he said.

Mr Zucaro said the company’s strategic plan was to build its business through the strength of its employees, with individuals chosen not just on their level of technical knowledge, but also how they would complement the existing Teck Global team.

He said Teck Global also targeted workers with real-world experience in the resources sector, providing a competitive edge through first-hand knowledge of clients’ needs.

“This strategy has definitely contributed to our growth - we design our products well from the beginning so there are less changes to design work, thereby making our turnaround time faster,” Mr Zucaro said.

“Our strategy of keeping our office and workshop together also means our engineers are on hand for any enquiries from our electricians straight away.”
