Our History

Sentinel and its wide-ranging services for the mining, construction, agricultural and transport sectors began with a passion to offer a local and reputable option for Central Queensland customers. Our Managing Director started his career in underground mining and took the opportunity to grow Sentinel from its base in Emerald with an expert team to service locals right across Central Queensland.

The team quickly outgrew their worksite and facilities and now offer customers a modern facility on a 10-acre site with further workshops planned to suit future service demands.
