About The Owners
RIE co-owner, Elena Short is one of few women Nation-wide who is an Electrical and Instrument (E&I) Technician, as well as graduating with a degree in Electrical Engineering.
Elena and Jamie Short, worked as E&I Technicians in a variety of industries Australia-wide, before coming across Chinchilla in the Western Downs region of Queensland, in their travels.After researching the Western Downs region, they recognised the potential to service a previously unfulfilled gap in the engineering market within the resource sector, and the chance to make a home with the regional lifestyle they wanted.
RIE has come a long way from their humble beginnings working out of their Chinchilla home.
The team has grown over ten years from a team of two, to as many as 140 members during the CSG Construction phase and now to a manageable 40+ personnel. Jamie and Elena’s passion for the trade and getting things done properly is what grew their reputation and got them from their first sub-contract at Kogan Creek Power Station, to working with a variety of resource companies today.
The business recently opened an office in Roma, with a goal to leverage potential industry growth in the region.
RIE is involved in supporting school programs to encourage students to consider engineering and the resource sector for future employment.
