Dave Neenan moved to Nhulunbuy from Perth for four weeks. That was 18 years ago.
Dave and his wife Tanya own and operate Gove Rentals and Mechanical. The company was a ‘broken down old shed’ with about 25 hire vehicles when Dave’s dad Brian bought it in 2002. It now has a new HQ, three mechanics and 70 hire vehicles, including a Tilt Tray recovery truck, servicing north-east Arnhem.
The company has diversified – it is now a one-stop shop, offering mechanical services, plus panel beating and spray painting.
The majority of Dave and Tanya’s business is still government and corporate, such as contractors to the nearby bauxite mine, but they are also seeing a growth in tourism.
Dave and Tanya Neenan will present at October Business Month in Nhulunbuy.
Date: Friday 2 October
Time: 10am to 10:30am
Venue: Gulf Room, Walkabout Lodge, 12 Westal Street, Nhulunbuy.
