Whether it’s finding a single employee or an entire team for your next construction project, you surely know the recruitment experience, patience and grit it takes to attract – and keep the most talented and reliable workers in the industry. Regardless of the size and scope of your project.
At PME, we’re always innovating, and always incorporating new and better technology as we work towards a safer and more efficient future in construction in PNG. That’s why we’re happy to announce our latest partnership: with Nexans.
The year has flown by, and Christmas is upon us. For many businesses, it’s a welcome break on the horizon; but it’s also a time to prepare ourselves for a surge of extra demand on our resources, which are limited at this time of year.
The team here at PME are proud to announce we are again sponsoring the PNG Tennis team, this time to the 2017 Mini Pacific Games in Vanuatu.
