Our History and Profile

PRECISE CORPORATION saw its beginnings in 1999, known back then as Precise Maintenance and has since become one of Australia’s premier, privately owned Maintenance, Compliance, Inspection and Human Resource Company, servicing both local and mining industries.

Precise provides such services as human resources, fleet maintenance, field services, workshop repairs, car and truck servicing and repairs, road worthy certificates, mine inspections and brake testing…Basically ALL Car, Truck and Earthmoving servicing and repairs, on and off site!

Needless to say, going from sole trader to large corporation in a relatively short time is impressive, but the company's founder, owner and operator Ashleigh Rowe says the key to success is honesty, respect and appreciation.

Starting his first job at 14 changing tyres in a workshop, Ashleigh began this classic rags-to-riches story by landing himself an apprenticeship in Gladstone as an automotive mechanic and then later extended his training to include diesel fitting and then heavy equipment repairs on mining equipment. Coming from nothing gave him the drive for hard work, the building blocks for success and the ability to appreciate every opportunity that came his way.

Once qualified at age 19, he began working all around the country as far as Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. Constantly learning and gaining experience in every industry he could until finally returning to Queensland. Not long after accepting a resident field service position where he was required to maintain heavy equipment on various mines throughout the Bowen Basin, he noticed a major shortage and high demand for skilled tradesman. That was a light bulb moment, Precise was created and the rest as they say is history.

Precise has currently been in business over 15 years and at the peak of the labour hire boom employed over 150 people and turned over in excess of 2 million dollars per month. Ashleigh has experienced many highs and lows, both professionally and personally, all contributing in some way to gain a better understanding of business.

The current economic downturn in the Mackay Region, has been his toughest challenge to date, however this has turned out to be a blessing in disguise by relocating to City Gates, Mackay (where the Bruce Highway and Peak Downs Highway intersect). We are now in the most prominent position geographically for our area, combined with our core group of dedicated staff and reduced overheads, we now offer the best service with the best price.

“I have now consolidated all previous divisions of Precise and adopted a ‘back to basics’ approach (the person who owns the business runs the business). This current approach of personal management has been very well received by suppliers, clients, employees and supporters.

Precise is still 100% privately owned by Ashleigh Rowe guaranteeing the continued support of local communities through sponsorship, donations,employment and supporting other local businesses.
