Jo and Josh Gadischke at the pizza party to mark the completion of the refinery

June 16, 2016

Proteco Gold owner Josh Gadischke marked the completion of the first phase of his new edible oils refinery with an on-site pizza party for staff members and contractors last week.

Many of the local workers who have helped to assemble the plant – and their families – as well as the specialists from India who are commissioning the refinery, enjoyed piping hot pizzas served up by Richard Mason, beer and wine under the stars.

Many also took the opportunity to climb to the top of the refinery building to see the lights of Kingaroy from a new vantage point.

Josh thanked his family and employees for helping Proteco to get to this point.

A special thank you was reserved for former Proteco owner Graham Helmhold who has shared his refinery experience with Josh during the construction process.

All the piping and pressure vessels for the refinery were made in the South Burnett by Nanango-based G3 Engineering.

Proteco also used local electricians, plumbers, gasfitters and sheet metal workers during the construction.
