Pope Earthmoving was established by Garry Pope in 2007 as a 100% Australian family owned business. Garry started Contracting as an owner-operator with his first D7E Dozer around Townsville. Garry also established himself as a mobile Boiler Making initially with a welder and generator on the back of his Ute. Over the years Pope Earthmoving has invested in modern equipment and machinery, and a large multi-purpose Workshop in Black River, Townsville.
