Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update 11.01.2021

We require all staff, visitors and truck drivers to scan out QR Codes through out the sites.  We have now changed to the RMS QR Code. This is to keep  safe protocol in place.


At Macka’s we value the safety and wellbeing of our employees, customers and suppliers. Currently we are actively monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID19) situation and we are implenting our business contingency plans to keep our employees and sites safe.

We wanted to take this opportunity to share with you what we are doing to make sure we are reducing the risk of spreading the virus across our sites.

From today onwards we ask that Sales Representatives and visitors please not visit our site to help reduce the risk of spreading this virus by implementing social distancing. All Inductions will be processed via a email link and all washing out of trucks must be carried out using gloves.  

Please be aware that we are more than happy to continue to do business with you as usual over the phone.

During this time of uncertainty we appreciate your understanding and cooperation and look forward to things getting back to a sense of normality.

Child’s Play in Australia’s biggest sandpit – Volvo Magazine features Macka’s Sand and Soil

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.
