Standing at the forefront for profound change. HeartKids is the leading research funding body in Australia that is a game-changer through its non-stop work for children with congenital heart disease. They fund many of the country’s top scientists and physicians who are studying how we can better treat and manage heart disease to support children who are in need.
For 2021, Plantman Equipment and sponsors Mt Gibson Iron, Sign On, Hankook Masters, Fennell Tyres, Atlas Copco CEA, and DMB Fluids Technology have joined forces to fight against heart disease by sponsoring Plantman’s appeal on their HeartKids Service Truck. Plantman is the first Western Australian mining, construction, or civil company to be an official supporter in this way and is proudly donating a percentage of each month the HeartKids Service Truck is out on rental for the cause.
The HeartKids Service Truck, a big bright red and blue hearty truck with the words “Proudly supporting HeartKids” written on it in bold letters, has been deployed to Mt Gibson Iron’s ‘Shine’ mining project located 230km east of the port city Geraldton. The truck will head out there for its first job to shine (pun intended) light on the cause of congenital heart disease. Shine Mineral Resource is a vast and impressive mine-site, estimated at 6.5 square kilometres in size rich in iron ore with state-of-the-art exploration going on around the clock.
“The entire team at Plantman is proud to be supporting HeartKids and we’re excited to have the opportunity to use our service truck for this great cause,” said Shaaron Whitton, Director of Plantman. “We hope that by shining light on congenital heart disease with The HeartKids Plantman Service Truck, others will become more aware of this wonderful cause”.
Overall, the HeartKids Service Truck is the latest and greatest addition to our service fleet on a mission to all things awesome for children’s heart health. The HeartKids Plantman Service Truck is looking to raise $50,000 or more in donations throughout this year.
Our goal is to raise awareness generally across Western Australia & in particular in the mining industry for the needs of children with congenital/heart disease. In supporting world-class research focused on the cause, treatment, and management in creating a profound change in children, families, and carers lives.
Cecilia Donovan, the HeartKids state manager said that appeals like Plantman’s are essential because they provide funding. She added, “It is huge for us because we don’t actually have a lot of government-backed support”. “We support families through practical and emotional support in the hospital at Perth Children’s Hospital and rural areas.” “We have a variety of programs and services; we do hospital visits daily and provide emotional and practical support like meals and financial assistance”. “We are so happy to have Plantman and their sponsors support in raising money and awareness for HeartKids with their Service Truck, it really does makes a difference”.

Excellent Service, catered to our needs with ease, delivered on time and very competitive prices. Kept in touch through the whole process, the machine was in excellent condition, operating above expectations. Ashley was very easy and professional to deal with, talked us through the whole process. The operator is very pleased with the machine. Would highly recommend it.

From the start working with Frank regarding setting up a different style of service body was more than helpful, and this enabled us to get a truck that meets our requirements. Pricing was good and there were no issues when we made changes when they were requested. The response was excellent, I have made multiple requests to have other things added and modified from learnings here on-site and these were done to a great standard. The delivery was good even due to the Covid restrictions. We were very happy with the result and will be recommending Plantman if requested and hopefully dealing with Plantman in the future when we upgrade trucks again. Thank you again for the work put into the truck and body.

The flatbed has been very well received across the MEM department. As expected it was delivered in a clean and ready-to-go condition as promised and all facets of the truck have been put to good use. Overall everyone is impressed with the truck and having it on-site has allowed for work to flow a lot smoother.
