Founder and Principal
Carey O’Keefe is renowned for his engineering capability, his knowledge of the sector, and his passion to overcome design challenges and deliver industry leading equipment.
Carey has nearly fifty years’ experience, working in progressively senior engineering roles for companies such as Australian Iron and Steel (now a BHP Subsidiary) and Southern Engineering Services, before co-founding Transmin PTY Ltd, in 1987.
Over the next eight years, Carey established the business as a market leader in the design and supply of Bulk Materials Handling and Feeding equipment.
In 2005, Carey left Transmin to set up Lime Systems Bulk Handling Storage Solutions and establish a truly ‘customer first’ organisation.
Since its inception, Lime Systems has been involved in overcoming many complex and challenging engineering projects, including building one of the largest flocculant plants in Australia – the Iluka Jacinth Ambrosia Flocculant Plant.
Carey’s energy and demand for quality never waivers. His mantra to Lime Systems remains simple and consistent:
“Lime Systems must design and build every piece of equipment better than the last one, because better never rests”.
Head of Drafting
Clint Turner, the Head of Drafting, joined Lime Systems in 2009 as a Draftsman/Project Manager, utilising his management skills gained from previous roles outside the industry.
His proficiency in transforming designs from the screen to high-quality equipment led to his promotion to the Head of Drafting in 2011.
Clint’s leadership guides a team of five skilled draftsmen and is integral to Lime Systems’ leadership team.
Notably, he considers the design and construction of the complex Lime Slaker at the Lihir Gold plant in Papua New Guinea as an exceptional example of turning design concepts into reality.
Branko Matic, the Estimator, leads the Estimating function at Lime Systems.
Branko brings extensive expertise to his position with over 21 years of experience in various engineering roles at companies such as Schlumberger, Halliburton, Yokogawa, and SCEE.
In addition, he holds a Bachelor of Technology Degree in Instrumentation and Control Engineering, an Advanced Diploma of Engineering in Instrument and Control, and a Postgraduate Certificate in Project Management.
Branko thrives on creating value for Lime Systems’ clients by developing tenders that leverage the company’s engineering and problem-solving capabilities to meet their needs and overcome challenges.
