Today marks a new chapter on the PlantMiner blog. Following the successful merger with Felix, PlantMiner is now known as Felix Vendor Marketplace and in line with this change, the PlantMiner blog will also sport a new look and name – Felix Project News.
To learn more about the merger, please read the announcement here.
Over the last five years, the PlantMiner blog has built up a reputation as one of Australia’s top construction blogs and we thank all our thousands of loyal readers for helping us achieve this.
Though we have changed our name and overall look, our goal is still the same – to bring you the latest construction, mining and infrastructure project news.
And after taking a week off from delivering your daily dose of project news, we are now back to regular programming.
Again, we thank you all for your continued support and stay tuned for our future posts.
