History & Values
Joe Wagner Group, originally Joe Wagner Earthmoving, was founded by Joe and Mary Wagner in 1985 to service Toowoomba and the surrounding districts. Starting from humble beginnings as a plant hire business, JWG now delivers high-quality construction outcomes in civil construction, rail, drainage, and earthmoving whilst maintaining a comprehensive and modern fleet of equipment and machinery.
Directors Nick and Jim Wagner have carried on the family tradition of maintaining a focus on giving back to the communities in which we operate and adhering to our four pillars of Support, Lifestyle, Pride and Value. Over the years, it has been their ability to communicate well, get the job done to a high standard and their hands-on approach that has earned Joe Wagner Group the loyalty of our clients and the respect of our peers.
