Gold Rock Investment, one of Fiji’s largest stone crushing quarries, began its first shipment of sealing chips overseas.

The company exported 1800 tonnes of International Accreditation New Zealand-tested and approved sealing chips grades to Vanuatu last week.

And Gold Rock general manager, Joseva Gavoka, said the shipment boosted the company’s reputation and their production level, especially when exporting to other countries.

“This first shipment generates foreign exchange for Fiji and also creates job opportunities for locals,” Mr Gavoka said.

“Gold Rock is an asset to the country, and other countries wish to have plants like this.

“Companies are contracted for road and civil building in Vanuatu. Our first export companies are very experienced and well-established in the region. They understand the value of quality and delivery.”

Mr Gavoka said they would be exporting more of their barge loads overseas, in the future.

Ocean Logistics Limited chief operating officer, Sean Griffin, said the shipment would boost trading ties between Fiji and Vanuatu.

“Fiji is a steady economy in the Pacific, and such shipment would also be a positive indicator of the Melanesian Spearhead Group relationship,” Mr Griffin said.

In terms of development plans, Mr Gavoka said: “Gold Rock Investment plans to fulfill the shortage of best quality road material and specialised aggregates in Fiji and the region.

Gold Rock Investments also thanks the positive feedbacks they have been receiving from their clients.
