From New Zealand to Australia, we enjoy pushing ourselves and the industry to get better value for our clients; constantly breaking down barriers to get where we are today. The Arrow Group currently undertakes more than $400 million worth of projects a year across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.
Ron Anderson and Bob Foster, the Arrow co-founders, believe that despite the concrete and steel outcomes, the construction industry is all about people. The secret to success is to focus on collaboration and building really strong teams. These key ingredients have created a culture within the Arrow business that goes to its very core. From the very beginning, Ron and Bob have merged work and play to build enduring relationships; many of these continue to this day.
In the late 1990s, Arrow was invited to Australia by Lion Pty Limited to confront the enormously complex challenge presented by the Stadium Australia beverage delivery and dispensing system. The project was a success and at the turn of the millennium, Arrow set up in Melbourne. Arrow was able to establish a relationship with Lion who was seeking to change the face of traditional hospitality outlets throughout Victoria. Through these first projects Arrow’s presence, capability and reputation began to grow.
Ongoing expansion into carefully selected markets ensures that each client benefits from our cutting edge expertise. At Arrow we know what we’re good at but we continue to focus on what we’re great at. Whether it is design and construct or early contractor involvement, working in a live facility that requires high levels of security and stakeholder interface, through to a brownfield or green field environment, Arrow thrives on every challenge. We have established key relationships with the DIBP, the DEECD and the Tune Group and have a valued, ongoing collaboration with the DHHS. We also have an increasing presence in the aged care and retirement living markets.
After 15 years in Australia, Arrow continues to grow in capacity and reputation through an absolute commitment to building for success. This is achieved by sticking to our core principles: committing to add value to any project; flexibility in thinking; demanding true collaboration of all parties to a project; employing only people who share that commitment; and above all forging true partnerships with our clients to ensure their business aspirations are forefront at all times.
