South West Pipe Relining – growing young entrepreneurs in regional Victoria

Jay Stuart, founder, and Managing Director of South West Pipe Relining (SWPR), is gaining marketshare within the trenchless pipe rehabilitation industry whilst also being a leader in his local community. 

South West Pipe Relining, based in Warrnambool, Victoria, is a specialised company that provides high-quality trenchless pipe rehabilitation services across private and government sectors.

However, it is not all business for Jay. As an active member of his community, Jay ensures he creates path to employment through apprenticeships and training for young Indigenous people in regional Victoria. Beyond employment, SWPR focuses on supporting local sporting clubs, schools, and a boxing gym. 

Jay was also recognised for his commitment to his community in 2019, when SWPR received a Courage award from the Victorian Government for the repair of a 1200mm pipe in Mallacoota damaged during the bushfires.  

FAC is proud to be part of SWPR’s growth, with our recent investment of growth capital to support the business’ expansion. The capital enabled SWPR to purchase specialist technical camera equipment and vehicles designed for internal pipe inspections. 

SWPR continues to go from strength to strength, and branch out its services nationally, with the team recently securing contract works with the new Sydney Metro Tunnel.
