In 2019, Rangedale Group launched Rangedale Drainage and Industrial Services (RDI) – a locally owned arm of the business focusing on servicing regional Victorian and New South Wales markets. This division of the group has extensive experience in heavy industrial cleaning, high pressure water jetting applications, pipeline CCTV, jet cleaning, relining, Smart Lock installation and more.
Justin Triffitt is one of three directors in the RDI business. “The RDI business is a trading entity that sits under the Rangedale Group, established in 2019,” says Triffitt. “We have a branch based in Wangaratta, a site in Western Sydney, and we’re in the process of setting up another site in Wodonga which will be operational from the end of February.”
RDI Services covers markets including oil and gas, petrochemicals, mining, manufacturing, water and municipal councils. Triffitt, along with Vince D’Alessio and Chris O’Conner, joined the Group in 2019 after carrying out high performing roles in the corporate sector.
“Joining Neil Kermeen and the team at Rangedale has been a refreshing change, allowing us to set up a delivery model that suits industrial services contracting, providing a great delivery model for our client base,” says Triffitt.
Rangedale had historically been a Melbourne-based business, and the company’s long-term strategy has been to push the business into regional Victoria and regional New South Wales. Collectively, the RDI directors have more than 40 years of industry experience.
“The Rangedale business in Melbourne has been in the drainage market for a long time,” says Triffitt. “We have solid experience in the drainage and civil market. From a service perspective, our background also gave the group an opportunity to extend the service offer into industrial services: heavy industrial cleaning and high-pressure water jetting in the oil and gas market, petrochemical market, and the mining industry as well.
“While RDI has a solid service offering in non-destructive digging and pipeline maintenance, our point of difference is our ability to deliver tank cleaning and plant cleaning applications – for example, heat exchangers, boilers, vessels and various applications requiring the use of cold cutting and industrial vacuum loading technology.”
Back in 2019, Triffitt and the team started the arm of the business with one drain cleaning combination unit at each site. “We had a very focused team that put a lot of work into both business development and quality delivery. We now have over 20 units working between Wangaratta and Sydney sites,” he says.
“It has certainly been a very chaotic and challenging two years, but we are really looking forward to the future. We are committed to strategic growth and to providing sustainable employment opportunities.”
With scale of fleet, personnel, industry knowledge and expertise, RDI Services is a logical choice for Industrial Services anywhere on the east coast. RDI has depots based in Wangaratta, Wodonga and St Marys (Vic & NSW).
RDI has the expertise to tailor specific solutions for a variety of problems, as well as a large equipment fleet to allocate high priority to emergency works and the ability to work 24/7.
