Thalib Sathaar currently holds the position of General Manager of BES-TT Projects, a joint venture between Bianco Engineering Services Australia and Toyota Tsusho Australasia. Thalib was instrumental in creating this alliance where the simple concept of offshore manufacturing utilising Australian manufacturing expertise has led to the creation of a niche market within the Mining, Infrastructure and Oil & Gas markets in Australia. This business unit turns over about $30million annually and is growing about 30%-40% annually.
Within the last four years Thalib has become the Major Share Holder of Bianco Engineering Services Australia and India and recently taken the role as CEO of Eco Engineering and Services Malaysia. This has enabled the BES-TT Projects part of the business to supply engineering product from a facility that is now owned and operated by Thalib.
It’s all about soul. The last four years has been rather difficult with starting up from a garage/backyard operations to now being represented across Australia, Japan, the Netherlands, Abudhabi & Malaysia. With a gross turnover exceeding $30million dollars and anticipated growth to double in the year 2016.
There is no end to what can be achieved with a bit of will and a lot of soul, believes Thalib.
