Executive Officer’s Foreword


The Port Hedland Chamber of Commerce has undertaken a commitment to develop an office space designed to accommodate small businesses.

This office space, with the operational support from the likes of Spacecubed and Pollinators will
ensure that the following objectives are met:

  • Multi-functional
  • Strong base revenue
  • Create opportunities for interaction
  • Provide motivation and networking
  • Provide access to funding and business services
  • Provide physical and virtual space

One of our biggest and most popular networking events, the PHCCI Business Breakfast Series, continued to grow in 2017.

Our team works really hard to present an engaging program of speakers that provide exclusive, local insight into some of the issues impacting the day-to-day running of your business.

We’ve heard from high-level business, government and industry leaders with agendas that featured project updates, market forecasts, political policy decisions and expansion announcements.

And we can’t forget the biggest night on the Hedland business community calendar… The PHCCI Business of the Year Awards!

With an unprecedented amount of submissions this year the PHCCI Business of the Year Awards continues to be a fantastic celebration of the local business communities’ contribution to the regional economy.

Twelve very deserving individuals and businesses were recognised at the awards ceremony themed Masked til Midnight including the 2017 BHP Overall Winner of the Year Inline Engineering.

Winner of the People’s Choice Award with more than 200 votes was Raikas Café.

Well done to everyone who received a nomination in the PHCCI Business of the Year Awards.

I’d like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our 9 member Committee and Staff. Your energy and enthusiasm has driven impressive growth across our organisation including membership and business activities.

Thank you to all our members who have supported the PHCCI’s projects and initiatives – without your support none of this would be possible. Finally on behalf of all of us here at the PHCCI I hope that this directory is of significant value and remind you we are always available if you
require any assistance.
