RIG - A Monadelphous Company

Our history Acquisition Capabilities Jobs with RIG Projects


Since when?

In July 2017, Monadelphous acquired RIG Installations, a Newcastle-based fabrication and maintenance business. Originally a family-owned company, RIG established a strong reputation in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley, proudly supporting major clients in heavy industry, construction, installation and maintenance since 1987.

The perfect fit

With closely aligned values and complimentary services, the acquisition of RIG was a great result for everyone.

For RIG, the acquisition by a leading engineering construction company was a proud moment. Donna Beiboer, Managing Director at the time of the acquisition (and wife of the former MD and owner Gerard Beiboer) said, “I’m so proud that RIG Installations has overcome adversity and shown such resilience that a leading engineering group of the calibre of Monadelphous wants to acquire its skills, expertise, experience and talent”.

Monadelphous has been operating in the Hunter Valley, in particular in the coal industry, since 2000.

The acquisition means clients can leverage off Monadelphous’ extensive experience, specialist knowledge and significant range of equipment whilst still maintaining the status quo in terms of the same RIG personnel and high-level of service.

Existing RIG clients can also benefit from a range of additional Monadelphous services, including rope access, scaffolding, marine maintenance, crane hire, heavy lift and electrical and instrumentation services.
