What our clients say

I would like to thank the team at Hawk for their professionalism in the way their carried out their jobs. It was a pleasure to train with Hawk after a previous seriously bad experience I had with another company. George was an absolute delight in his approach to the training which help me overcome my concerns. He basically had to rebuild my confidence as a plant operator fortunately for me I passed, however with George I would have still been fine if the outcome had have been different. I can see though the team that Hawk have why the company would be successful.

We have been using Hawk for a some years now. Mainly on the Safety and Training side of the business and on the odd occasion we have hired machinery. We have found Hawk very professional and the service very good. We have found the training instructors to be excellent and explain all points of training very well
