Leading Australian civil and mining company NRW Holdings today announced it had acquired Hughes’ East Coast coal production drilling operations.

Hughes’ East Coast operations comprise a fleet of 35 large drill rigs, and approximately 160 employees, providing services to a number of major mine operators and owners in Queensland and New South Wales.

With a forward order book of $50 million and annual revenues of around $40 million, the acquisition of Hughes’ East Coast operations aligns with NRW’s strategy to build upon their existing presence in Queensland and expand into New South Wales.
