Supporting the Aussies
7 August 2015
Held at North Kirra on Queensland’s Gold Coast from 11 to 19 April, the 2015 Australian Surf Life Saving Championships attracted even more personal involvement from Coates Hire this year.
New CEO and long-time surf lifesaving participant Michael Byrne competed in ‘The Aussies’, as the competition is known, for the first time in his new role. Naturally his presence ensured that the Coates Hire supply of equipment went without a hitch, according to Area Sales Manager Specialist Product, Brisbane, Steve Holz.
It was a complex job to coordinate the site accommodation, judging boxes, power generation and lighting along with portable toilets through the Gold Coast Council and pumping services, capably performed by Area Product Specialist, Portable Buildings, Gary Miller working with the Kingston Portable Buildings and Reedy Creek Specialist branches.
The event was celebrating the centenary of its Australian inauguration and, fittingly, Coates Hire extended its previous supply partnership by supporting the iconic Surf Life Saving festival as an event supporter.
