Our aim is to help events of all sizes become safer for audiences, crew and artists.”

Nicola will be supported by Operations and Account Manager Craig Edwards, who has led more than 50km of barrier installations across Australia and Europe, equipping him to provide expert product knowledge and site installation management.

Cees Muurling, Mojo Barriers’ managing director, comments: “We’ve had a very successful decade in Australian and the opening of the new office allows us to build on this.
