who we are
the waterline story
Entrepreneur Randall Makin co-founded Waterline in 2011 from his office on the waterline in Bowen, having identified a niche in the market for site-experienced engineers to work with large asset owners to improve the safety, productivity and capacity of their operations.
Since then, Waterline has evolved into so much more, a multi-discipline engineering company that supports mineral processing facilities, mine sites and ports throughout the east coast of Australia. With over 85% of our clients in the mining industry, we support our clients on or off site to keep their assets running, now and into the future. At Waterline, we’ve got your back.
With his entrepreneurial spirit, Randall took this business model and co-founded RedEye, one of Australia’s fastest growing start-ups and the first software business to make engineering data truly mobile.
Together, the two brands frequently collaborate to combine engineering, drafting and software to help clients digitise paper-based processes and manage engineering information. This collaboration offers a true point of difference on the engineering stage.
