Clay was born into the earthmoving industry and after completing his senior schooling in 1995 joined his father in a civil construction company based in northern NSW, working predominantly in subdivisions and quarrying. Four years later Clay accepted a position with a large nationwide construction company and in 2003 he saw an opportunity to follow a dream. Baden Plant Hire was established by Clay and Brit in March 2003.

We commenced business with the purchase of a 20t excavator and Clay began working as an owner operator on residential subdivisions and for private rural land owners around the Gold Coast hinterland.

"Continued growth since then has enabled Baden Plant Hire to expand its fleet and our range of services. In mid 2008, following the award of a large drainage contract in South East Queensland, Baden Civil Contracting was born with the establishment of civil construction and drainage crews."

Baden Civil now have 20 Caterpillar machines, 2 drainage & earthworks crews and upwards of 20 longstanding subcontractors have been working as part of the Baden team. We have been involved in large scale government funded projects from Brisbane to Byron Bay and continue to provide services to many large contractors and joint venture alliances.
