ProfileThe Cooper Group of Companies (CGC) is a privately owned, fully Western Australian enterprise.

Cooper Group (CGC) is controlled, directed and beneficially owned in equal holdings by brothers Brent and Peter Cooper. CGC has two trading operations being CGC Dredging - a dredging contractor and CGC Projects - a property developer and landlord. Both are situated at CGC’s owned property at Henderson in Western Australia.

CGC Dredging is a medium sized specialist dredging company, first formed in 1980, which has since evolved to suit the wide range of requirements of the Western Australian dredging industry. The company does most of the maintenance dredging for the Department of Transport (WA). It also serves the wider general marine industry. It performs specialist dredging for the mining community, mostly in the area of tailings management. For example, the company has undertaken all of Alcoa’s dredging work in WA for the last 20 years. It has four dredging units of various sizes and configuration as well as a wide range of support equipment.

CGC Projects has a large portfolio of quality commercial and industrial properties which it leases only to high quality tenants over longer terms. These properties have all been designed and developed or re-developed by CGC Group to high standards.

In the recent past, CGC Group also had two other business units, CGC Hireplant and CGC Equipment. These businesses were sold in a rationalization of the group whereby the Directors wanted to specialize in dredging and property.

CGC Hireplant was a hirer and contractor of crushing, screening and conveying services, the business being formed in 1989. CGC Equipment was a designer and manufacturer of quality crushing, screening, conveying, dredging and processing plant and equipment. Its foundation year was 1980. Obviously a lot of experience was gained from the exposure to these industries.

The Cooper Group’s vision is to excel in the areas of client service and satisfaction, provide real value and technical improvement, to provide quality management with team oriented workers and to have a 100% safe working environment for employees, clients and the public. Safeguarding the environment to the highest standards is also paramount to our mission.

Our aim is simply to be the best at what we do and to stick to what we do best. 30 years in the highly specialized areas of dredging, earthmoving, crushing, screening, materials handling and plant design & construction have positioned the group to be a formidable problem solver and performer.
