Tony Shepherd amazed at Fortescue's progress


PORT HEDLAND, Western Australia, 20 July 2012 - Mr Shepherd said: "I was staggered by how much Fortescue has achieved in such a short time. It is obvious that the enthusiasm and commitment of all the staff and the culture that has been created are the driving forces behind the company's success."

Mr Shepherd saw the progress on the expansion and was briefed about Fortescue's award winning Managed Aquifer Recharge Scheme at Cloudbreak. He was interested to learn more about Fortescue's VTEC and employment programs through which Fortescue is now directly employing more than 400 Aboriginal employees with another 630 employed by contractors.
