All In The

Driven by wholesome family values and innovation, the Batchelor family name has been in the construction industry for the past fifty years. Batchelor Civil Contracting (BCC) a division of The Batchelor Construction Group (BCG) was founded in 2010 after Adam Batchelor took up the opportunity and purchased the business from his parents Rob and Jill Batchelor.

Based in Southern Tasmania; BCC is a civil, earthmoving and building construction company providing a full suite of services for the infrastructure development for private, local and state government as well as associated entities throughout Tasmania. The company’s primary focus is to always deliver ultimate customer satisfaction whilst maintaining a safe working environment for our workforce.

Starting out in 2010 with a fleet of six machines and six employees, BCC has immensely grown and proven their tough presence in the Tasmanian earthmoving industry. Over the last 12 years the company has increased their plant fleet to eighty pieces of construction machinery and expanded their workforce to seventy employees.

Director of BCC Adam Batchelor acknowledges their business success and growth to the “skill set of our operators in conjunction with premium quality equipment. Hitachi excavators dominate our earthmoving fleet as having machines that don’t have issues is what we strive for, and Hitachi can supply this”.

“I’ve driven all the major brands, the standout points of the Hitachi are operator comfort, visibility, the ease of control on final trim including having the ability to bulk out with excellent breakout force while maintaining fuel efficiency” said Shanon Long, operator of  Hitachi ZX210-5 excavator which has done over 4000 hours.

The fleet of Hitachi excavators ranging from 1.7 tonne through to 87 tonne excavators are working tirelessly at the new $8.1 million Launceston City Council Waste Cell landfill. This business contract consists of over fifty thousand cubic meters of excavation, eight acres of geosynthetic liner and two millimetre HDPE plastic liner.  As well as other contracts including road, subdivision developments and freshwater pipelines for aquaculture and agriculture across Tasmania.

Overall Adam credits the relationship he’s built with Launceston Branch Manager, Steve Cheney over the years. “Steve provides our business with the imperative support and service we need, from day one we have had open communication and the business looks forward to a prosperous future together”.


Within Australia, HCA is the exclusive distributor of Hitachi and Bell branded products and is committed to delivering product service and support through a wholly-owned branch network and a customer support centre operating 24 hour 7 days a week.
