Macka’s Sand and Soil staff travel to Asia.

Robert Mackenzie traveled with a group of his skilled staff to Malaysia, Thailand, India, China, and Hong Kong. They strengthened existing ties with clients while forging new friendships in the resource sector.

Robert said, “I went as an ambassador for Macka’s Sand and Soil as well as the Australian sand industry as a whole. Links were made with some fantastic people and, I believe, based on mutual respect and understanding. In fact, I had a great time and learned a lot, not just about the Asian industry, but about their rich cultures as well.”

Macka’s provides a premium and highly sought after product used for the glass and foundry industry.
