TEAM AKURA, CARING FOR OUR COMMUNITY
Akura’s origins extend back to 1976, when Central West builder, John Wallace, founded a construction business.
From its humble beginnings of one builder and his truck, Akura has grown to a 100 strong team, completing over 550 projects across NSW, Canberra and Victoria.
Over 46 years strong, Akura’s family values remain firmly entrenched at the heart of the business, extending to the communities we live and work within.
The team culture at Akura is fostered by mate ship and joining together to achieve a common goal. This attitude, coupled with the desire to support others, has helped many communities in need.
With recent floods and fires causing further devastation for already suffering farmers, the true Australian spirit of Team Akura has been out in force.
Over recent weeks Akura staff and families have banded together to help people in need throughout three major disaster-affected areas in central western NSW.
The Eugowra township, located approximately 300kms West of Sydney, suffered devastating flooding late last year and the repair effort continues to require full support.
Akura truck driver, Jason Honeysett, dedicated a week delivering five portable self-contained housing units from Cessnock where they were built, to Eugowra, a round trip of 1000kms to-and-fro.
Last week, Akura’s Managing Director, Troy Wallace, along with the Rapid Relief Team (RRT), joined a convoy of trucks delivering 653 A-grade hay bales to assist 120 farmers in the flood affected community in and around Condoblin.
This incredible commitment follows on from other much-needed hay bale deliveries by the RRT volunteer team, along with additional services including mental health support, rural financial counselling and veterinary support.
Closer to home, our Bathurst team responded to an urgent call for help with out-of-control fires around the Hill End area. Within 24hrs, a team of dedicated volunteers from Team Akura, RRT, friends and family, packed 2,955 meal boxes to feed volunteer firefighters. Taking over the kitchen and spilling outdoors, the team worked tirelessly to pack and deliver meals daily for seven days, providing much needed care and nourishment for firefighters on the front line at Hill End.
What an amazing effort! Thank you to the wonderful RRT volunteers along with our Akura team!
