How UON Supports Pilbara Communities

Jul 6, 2021

UON has been backing local communities in the Pilbara for over 15 years. Our success has been founded on strong local connections and a company culture that emphasises teamwork. It is vital that communities are sustainable in the long term. This requires a commitment from mining and mining services companies to support the ongoing socio-economic development of regional areas.

UON undertakes a range of community initiatives from our base in Newman including our support of:

  • The local Tom Price Swimming Club (led by long-term team members Karl Griffiths and Brad Thompson);
  • The Tom Price T-Ball Association providing shirts and equipment as they tour the Pilbara to play other teams;
  • The Tom Price Townsite Eagles Football Team (competing in the Fortescue National AFL Football League) as Gold Sponsor; and,
  • The Pannawonica Primary School by pitching in with other contractors to help install the new sandpit.
