AstroHire was founded in 2018 by Karl Joyce, a local to Gympie who has lived in the area since 2005.
It started with Karl hiring equipment and realising there was an opportunity to hire equipment to others in Gympie and the surrounding areas.
Karl’s Vision was for AstroHire – originally named Kookaburra Hire to be the industry leader, setting best practices for innovation, equipment and customer service in the dry hire of earthmoving equipment to the QLD civil, construction, mining and municipal industries.
Astro’s vision is to be a lifelong partner to our clients, by listening to their needs, earning their trust, and fulfilling their requirements, becoming an asset to their business or project.
Our goal is to become the preferred partner for earthmover dry hire to the civil and construction industries. By providing a service where our clients enjoy an agile, knowledgeable and responsive service it will contribute to AstroHire being a major supplier to QLD’s earthmoving needs.
Astro’s mission is to make ”Project Fulfillment Made Easy” and improve the level of knowledge, skill and productivity within the civil and construction industry.
Karl's passion for exceptional customer service and his desire to see the civil construction industry make productivity gains through the use and implementation of technology is what keeps him going.
With a background in accounting, business and the construction industry, Karl is well placed to steer Astro through the maze of today's connected world and bring cutting edge technology and equipment to the civil and construction industry.
