We successfully collaborate with our partners to help support achieving a sustainable and prosperous Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander business sector.

DDR Australia partnership between Hutcheson and Co Holdings (100% Aboriginal owned) and Duratec Australia was founded in 2017 with the purpose of providing long-term Indigenous employment opportunities.

Having managed his Darwin-based, 100% Indigenous owned company Hutcheson and Co Holdings specialises in painting, coatings, building maintenance, renovation, electrical, plumbing and landscaping services for over 15 years, Thomas Hutcheson was ready to strengthen and expand his business nationally.

Duratec Australia, with their national footprint and diverse service capabilities was the perfect partner – a synergy of culture, quality, and business acumen complementing Hutcheson and Co Holdings’company vision and core values.

The founders of each business (Thomas Hutcheson and Phil Harcourt) worked together to build and align their vision for the new enterprise and DDR was formed.
