APTS invest in Darwin’s future

In an exciting move APTS have secured long term premises in the Darwin suburb of Berrimah and will open their newest branch in the next few months. This addition will add to APTS’ geographical coverage with our branch in Brisbane and our head office in Perth along with our Instrument and Gauge Calibration Lab in Bibra Lake.

APTS see Darwin as a strong emerging market not only with the upcoming Ichthys LNG project but more importantly the Northern Territory government’s strategy of making Darwin the service hub for oil and gas in the South East Asia region for many years to come. Many businesses are setting up in Darwin to “cash in” on the Ichthys project but APTS are focussing on the long term and plan to be in Darwin well past the completion of this project.

Executive Director and Founder of APTS Paul Newbound commented: “We are here for the long haul and want to establish ourselves as a strong member of the Darwin business community. Our business was built on family values and we want to continue that approach as we enter this exciting phase of our growth and provide strong ongoing employment opportunities for local residents”
