The Team

Northern Goldfields Earthmoving is owned and managed by Wayne Linke and his wife Martha. They oversee the business operations and employ a team that includes thoroughly experienced and highly competent earthworks supervisors, expert machine operators, and a cook.

This team has worked together for many years on NGE projects and ongoing contracts.


Industry Experience

Wayne started in road construction as a grader operator in 1998, regularly subcontracting to BGC, Brierty, Pavement Technology, Highway Constructions and Airport Management Services.

He started Northern Goldfields Earthmoving in 2003 with one grader and a truck and built the business over time to what it is today. NGE has been operating in the industry for over 15 years.

NGE is wholly owned by Wayne and Martha Linke, who continue to manage the day-to-day operations of the business. They have successfully grown the business and overseen its transition from family trust to privately held company.

NGE’s integrity as a family-run business is its core value.
