Mipac celebrates 25 years in business

Mipac has reached an important milestone in its history today after celebrating 25 years in business. 

Since that first day on the 3rd  of March 1997, Mipac has grown from humble beginnings with a small ambitious team of seven founding members and shareholders, to now becoming a global organisation focused on delivering long-term solutions and optimising operational performance.

Fast forward 25 years, Mipac has achieved exceptional outcomes for their clients across more than 350 projects globally. Multiple award wins within the industry also reinforces Mipac’s recognition and achievements as it continues to champion projects and industrial innovation.

With a workforce that is now 90+ strong, Mipac offers expertise across engineering services in control systems automation and digital solutions within the mining, mineral processing, water, and wastewater across more than 50 countries including Australia, Africa, Europe and the Americas.

25 years and beyond

Eddie De Rivera, Managing Director of Mipac has been with the company since it’s inception 25 years ago.

“As one of the longstanding employees at Mipac since inception 25 years ago, it has been a remarkable experience and purposeful journey. One that I am truly proud of, and those who have been with us, past and present are proud of. Not only as an Australian business extending its global reach but as passionate, driven, hardworking individuals and industry experts who have time and time again established a proven track record of success, demonstrating unwavering dedication to solving complex challenges for our clients that others have struggled with.

We are deeply passionate and knowledgeable in what we do, and value the importance of providing a high level of service and individuality to the culture at Mipac. Everyone who has worked at Mipac has contributed to the success of our 25 years of continual national and global expansion, client and project successes, and the delivery of engineering innovation and industry solutions.

I am privileged to celebrate such a momentous milestone. I am equally as excited, as we continue Mipac’s pioneering legacy and the lasting impact we have had on clients and projects beyond 25 years.”
