Hastings Deering confirmed as gold sponsor for PNG Expo

As one of the top suppliers of Caterpillar products and services to Papua New Guinea’s mining sector, Hastings Deering understands how important the industry is to the Pacific nation.

Hastings Deering’s journey in Papua New Guinea began in 1949, and it has been delivering CAT products and services to the country’s mining industry since that time.

Having recently celebrated 75 years in Papua New Guinea, Hastings Deering is looking forward to being a gold sponsor of the PNG Industrial and Mining Resources Exhibition and Conference (PNG Expo).

“Hastings Deering PNG is very excited to be supporting the PNG Expo,” Hastings Deering country general manager PNG and Solomon Islands Andrew Dare said.

“Our commitment to PNG spans 75 years, so supporting and contributing to the industry is very important to Hastings Deering.”

Held from July 3–4 at the Stanley Hotel in Port Moresby, the PNG Expo is the premier event that brings together all sectors of the industrial, mining and resources industries into one location to create a marketplace where business is done.

“From providing the latest Cat machines, maintenance and rebuilds, to training local staff, Hastings Deering PNG is at the forefront of supporting the development of the industry and its people in PNG,” Curtis said.

“We are not only supporting the resource industry but also contributing to the local communities we operate in.”

Hastings Deering’s PNG division has 300 employees supporting five business centres located in Port Moresby, Lae, Tabubil and Kimbe, with an operations centre at Lihir Island supporting Australian gold miner Newcrest.
