Rabs Group have been supplying profiling services to the industry since it started back in 2010, this service was previously supplied through sub-contractors.
The group owner decided that to support his in house needs and customers further it would be better to purchase and run profilers in house rather than through sub-contractors.
The Rabs Group now run and own 5 of their own profiling machines; our flag ship machines are the Wirtgen W210- 2 metre wide Profilers, followed up with a Wirtgen W150, 1.5 metre wide profiler and the Wirtgen W100, 1.0 metre wide track machine, these machines are mostly used to support our own works however are available for hire on hourly rates or project specific rates if required.
Rabs Group have executed varied civil contracts for example:
Rabs were successful in the 3.8 million dollar construction of the North Dynon Intermodel Services Area for Pota Holdings Pty Limited (P&O Australia). The work in this contract was originally designed around the construction of pavements for the storage of 3000 empty shipping containers, a refueling facility for container forks and 2 train locos, 2 x 36 metre light towers and a container repair/wash/pre-trip facility.
During the early stages of the work the client changed the construction from empty 3000 containers to 800 full containers and 3000 empty containers. This meant the re-engineering of the hard stand pavement and associated works. Including the fuel facility being capable of fuelling 8 diesel locos simultaneously.
Rabs sweeping services owns and operates 2 x 2016 605 series Macdonald Jonson suction sweepers.
We currently supply sweepers to the road profiling industry to customers such as Bitu-mill and Central profiling as well as road construction clients such as Leighton’s M80 project, Watpac Albert Park & Point Cook projects and BMD on the M80 project to name a few.
