Who is Steve Fordham

Steve Fordham

28 -year-old Kamilaroi man Steve Fordham is the co-founder of Blackrock Industries, a multimillion dollar Indigenous owned and Indigenous operated business shortlisted for the 2019 EBA Awards.
At the age of 13, Steve Fordham was told he was about to die due to a benign polyp found in the middle of his brain.

In a yarn with NITV radio, he confided that this scary discovery in his brain is what sparked a dramatic change on his outlook on life driving him to fully embrace life and never let anything hold him back.

“I was dyslexic throughout high school, I taught myself how to read but when I was diagnosed with a polyp in my brain, with a short time to live, I became more focused on life than school,” Steve Fordham said.

The polyp in his brain eventually dissipated but his mindset was already altered and re-wired for greater achievements.

The only way we are going to fix the system is going out there and doing things ourselves.

 

He did an apprenticeship, worked for several years as a boilermaker; ventured in pet breeding and lawn mowing before starting his biggest and most successful enterprise.

In 2016 Steve Fordham launched Blackrock Industries with business partner Glen Finnan with whom he shares values and vision.

 

“Our goal was to build not only a viable business but also a company that gives back and helps people.” They started the business with just $20,000 between them, an old tipper truck and 2 employees.

The company started with a single $1000 contract at Mt Pleasant but they would very quickly diversify in earthworks, mine rehabilitation, demolition, fencing, construction, cleaning and labour-hire services.

Three years down the road, Blackrock Industries boasts a multimillion-dollar turnover and employs more than 100 people.
Steve Fordham says his company aims to grow and expand but what it does along the way supporting the local socioeconomic fabric and closing the gap is as important.
