Hilton has been involved in commercial and industrial development since 1975. As a developer of light industrial estates, his company Erolmore doubled the area of Cardiff Industrial Estate from 1989 to 1993. Cardiff Industrial Estate was the largest light industrial suburb in the Hunter at this time.
He formed Hunter Land with Graham Burns in 1993 and has been involved in extensive development activity throughout NSW.
Hilton also has very extensive business interests including ready-mixed concrete, quarrying, steel fabrication, plant hire, residential building projects and travel – to name a few!
Hilton’s philosophy is to keep projects simple and get them finished while all stakeholders are focussed.
