End of an era

Earthmoving services in the Barossa are decreasing, with two long-serving companies closing their doors in the past six months.

EB. Marschall and Sons, Tanunda will close on Friday – just six months after Nuriootpa business, Linke Contracting shut their doors.

Family members involved in the partnership are retiring and were unable to sell the working business as it has no fixed contracts.

It is the end of an era for the family business, which has been operating out of Tanunda for almost 60 years.

Business partner, Mr Kingsley Marschall said the decision to close had been extremely difficult, but with his brother, David’s ill health along with his own wish to retire, felt the time was right.

“I am going to miss it. That said, I am proud of what we’ve done. We have built up a very successful earthmoving business that has evolved, and is absolutely debt free,” Kingsley said.
