History

The Hopkins family have a transport business history in the Rockhampton region dating back to the 1880’s. Prior to the establishing Hopkins Brothers, our Company Directors gained a wealth of experience working in transport, earthmoving and commercial fields.

Hopkins Brothers commenced operations in 1987 and moved operations to our current headquarters at 380 Alexandra St Parkhurst in 1993. Quarry operations commenced at Midgee in 2002.

From humble beginnings, owning one truck and one end-loader, Hopkins Brothers has expanded into a fully-equipped leading supplier of hard rock quarry products, sand, soil and gravels, earthmoving, transport, rail maintenance and construction services in Central Queensland and beyond.

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Based on strong foundations of over thirty years in business, Hopkins Brothers operates with high standards, and is a company of action and reliability. All six company directors are active in the day to day running of the business, and together with our skilled and dedicated workforce, deliver products and services of the highest quality.

Hopkins Brothers has not only survived, but has thrived in highly regulated industries such as quarrying, road transport and rail infrastructure due to high work standards, robust risk management, and stringent safety and environmental procedures.

We take pride in our reputation for getting the job right the first time (no re-work), safely (no injuries), on time (or before time) and on budget.

Hopkins Brothers is committed to the local community. We are proudly locally owned and operated, and use local suppliers whenever possible. We also support a number of community groups, sporting clubs and charities.
