An Industry Leader for more than 26 Years

As a smaller, vibrant and versatile company with a hands-on approach, James Trowse is able to meet and exceed client expectations whilst adhering to budgets and timeframes.

One of James Trowse’s competitive advantages is its two directors are very much working directors, who are heavily involved in the day-to-day operations of the business – a model which clients appreciate. It provides a personalised touch and professional attention at every step.

Specialising in small to medium-sized projects, the firm’s turnover has consistently grown year on end along with our roster of valued repeat clients. While our ability to problem solve just about any task means that many of the company’s projects are one-offs, the firm also enjoys repeat business, owing strongly to its reputation in the field. As Mr Mountford says, “the company always delivers,” and the Directors are known in the industry as men and women of their word.

At all times James Trowse has been professional. JTQ has at all times conducted its business honestly. With respect to performance, we have noted an above-average performance and quality and a particularly high level of details. This we believe is due to the hands-on involvement of the Directs and the fact that the company has a relatively large number of its own trade employees. Martin Cooper Director Ridgemill Pty Ltd

MDI Australia

It was a pleasure to liaise with key Trowse construction personnel during all phases of the project. The management team under Simon Mountford were excellent, the project administrator was constantly on the site and always available to resolve any issues. The site foreman was a most competent and efficient site foreman. The supervision of sub-contractors was first class and the quality outcome was extremely good. The project was completed on time and on budget. Trevis McKewen, Business Manager
