Bibby Marine Limited
"We do business in many countries around the world, and in most jurisdictions there are publicly funded bodies which aim to aid the local economy however these are usually bureaucratic and ineffectual in my experience. In contrast, the ICN in Northern Territory has proved to be both practical and relevant. The website and gateway are very useful tools which are easy to use and understand both for small unsophisticated businesses and for foreign organisations.
We were particularly pleased to get a direct lead from an organisation who had approached the ICN with a problem of how to accommodate their workforce in Darwin. Our understanding is that as well as discussing the traditional providers, you also advised them that there was the possibility (pending planning permission) of using our floating accommodation in Darwin which is aimed at requirements such as theirs. The organisation (AGC) then contacted us and we have an enquiry running with them. Whether or not this results in a contract, I think this is an excellent example of how the ICN can work and it benefits both suppliers and customers."
Jon Osborne, Managing Director of Bibby Marine Limited

ICN assisted in developing the relationship between JHTC and CCA and in doing this, we have put CCA in a great position of being able to respond quickly when tender opportunities come through"

David Gilder, SA/NT State Manager, EzyStrut
