Resource Industry Network (RIN) is a peak industry association representing companies actively engaged in the resource sector and those allied to the sector, including the engineering and heavy industrial sectors.  RIN aims to build a prosperous and resilient Mackay-Isaac-Whitsunday community by leveraging the collective capabilities of the region’s world-class engineering and heavy industrial sector.

While we are located in Mackay, Queensland on the doorstep of Australia’s Bowen and Galilee Basin mining regions, the businesses that RIN represents work across Queensland and Australia, with an ever-growing number of these companies are doing business around the globe.

Businesses in this sector assist the region’s 44 operating coal mines to deliver consistently high coal production. The region’s diverse range of businesses provide services in project management, engineering and design, maintenance services and manufacturing, and work with mining houses to deliver innovative, cost-effective and production-efficient solutions.  Through decades of development and commitment, the region’s heavy industrial and engineering sector has grown to be known as a world-class hub of excellence in engineering and heavy industry solutions.


RIN has effectively introduced international mining operators to specific suppliers in this region and aims to connect the right people with the right levels of influence in the resource sector as well as provide a valuable member network. RIN also develops practical pathways to businesses succeeding and assists in developing regional capability. The organisation promotes the area as a region of excellence in the resources services sector, highlighting the innovation and capability of its members and industry as a whole.

Resource Industry Network actively pursues opportunities for its members by continually promoting their strengths to commercial decision makers in the resource sector, as well as to key stakeholders including peak bodies and governments.
