Dave McKenzie, 53, owner of Horizon Shores Marina based vessel repair and refurbishment business, Marine Team Australia did exactly that. After spending the majority of his professional career as a private contractor in supervisory and management positions on construction and mining projects, Dave and his partner Jane agreed it was time for a change. “My last contract had finished, and Jane and I had just sold a house on the Gold Coast that we spent way too long and too much money renovating,” explained Dave. “Having always worked away from home, Jane felt it was time for a change, and I agreed, but only if it was something I was really interested in. “So that narrowed it down to boats, wine, food or coffee. “I was researching them all when the ad for Marine Team Australia popped up on Google.” Dave grew up on the South Coast of the South Island of New Zealand, surrounded by boats, fishing and diving. Struggling to remember a time when he wasn’t on or around the water, Dave said the sea has always been a part of his life. “My passion for boats was ignited as a kid. Depending on the season, if it wasn’t rugby or skiing, it was “Can we take the boat out?”, said Dave. “Dad nearly always had a boat, even if at times it was only a dinghy for floundering in the estuaries.” At the time, Dave wasn’t sure if he was ready to take the plunge into business ownership, but as soon as he met the crew at Marine Team Australia, a business that started more than 20 years ago, he knew he had found the refreshing change he’d been searching for. “The people I work with, and our clients are the best part of my job,” Dave said. “The team here is dedicated to making sure the clients’ best interests are always met. “It is the only place I have ever worked where we can sit down with a client and actually tell them that as much as we would love their business, we don’t think you should be doing this or that, or have you thought about doing it this way as it will give you a better result or save you a few dollars. “By the same token, if the guys tell a client they really need something done, and done properly, they mean it. “It’s a great little set up.” Dave credits working with such a knowledgeable and experienced team as the reason his transition to the marine industry has been smooth sailing, even if the steep learning curve leads to frustration at times. “Even though I have good knowledge, there is so much more to learn,” said Dave. “I am blessed to have great mentors.” These mentors are Brad, Graham, Gail and newcomer Neil. “Brad and Graham are so knowledgeable, and true craftsman,” said Dave. Brad is a shipwright, and the Marine Team Australia encyclopedia. He has been in the industry more than 30 years, and owned and refurbished his own boats in all of that time. “To listen to him talk to a client about their boat, or things to watch out for in a particular brand is a real privilege and delight,” said Dave. Graham has been building and repairing fiberglass boats for more than 25 years. He can tell you the good, the bad and the ugly in most glass boats, and repair anything better than original. Neil has recently joined the team after many years working in the Cairns Shipyard, so the Marine Team Australia vessels are quite a bit smaller than the ones he used to play with. Gail runs administration and accounts, and can talk boats with the best of them. She has a long history with the marine industry from working shark boats off the coast to being a partner in her own boat building business, and later working for marine supply agencies. Dave’s advice to those considering a career change later in life: You are never too old to have a career change. “Find something you love, do your homework and don’t be scared (that will come later!) “If you’re passionate about it, you will make it work.” To learn more about Marine Team Australia visit or  Impact Steel relocates premises to improve delivery and handling efficiency. 2017-04-18T22:50:06Z impact-steel-relocates-premises-to-improve-delivery-and-handling-efficiency Leading distributor and processor of sheet and coil steel has moved to new premises in Clayton South.  Impact Steel is a leading distributor and processor of sheet steel and coil steel products in Australia with over 25 years of industry experience.

Durran, the Geelong Brush Co. began as a quality manufacturer for small and specialised industrial markets. During the early years, the company took advantage of improving technologies and gained entry into a wider and larger sector of the Australian brushware market. By 1975, Victor’s two sons Jim and Ken rapidly expanded its operations into every state of Australia to become the largest volume manufacturer of brushware products in Australia. Today, the family owned business continues to manufacture high quality brushware products in Australia led by Jim’s son, Ross. The Geelong Brush Co. remains committed to local manufacture by taking advantage of world’s best practice technology and production processes. It stands as the last bastion of local manufacturing capability for many brushware product lines in the Australian marketplace. The Geelong Brush Co. is constantly updating and improving its product range and have expanded greatly over recent years. Their extensive range is sold in major supermarkets, hardware chains and other retail outlets nationwide. The investment in local manufacturing and Jobs in Australia and Geelong Continues today. On the 21st of April 2017 Sarah Henderson MP, the member of parliament for Corangamite will commission our newest machinery.  A significant investment designed to increase manufacturing capability and skills in in the Geelong region. This machinery will reintroduce manufacturing skills and craftmanship lost to Australian production facilities. The Machinery will be commissioned on the 21st of April at 11am at a public ceremony For all media enquiries please contact Kelvin Murray Mobile: 0416 556 485  Email: The Geelong Brush Company Pty. Ltd. 40 Leather Street, Breakwater,  Victoria, 3219 Australia Phone: +61 3 5229 7663 Fax: +61 3 5229 7690 . Risk-Averse Engineers Create Pumps that Perform Perfectly Even In Extreme Conditions 2017-04-05T03:22:07Z risk-averse-engineers-create-pumps-that-perform-perfectly-even-in-extreme-conditions Perth, WA, 05 April 2017 - In 1990, a migrant German engineer established a small firm called Pumps and Services Australia. They developed numerous innovative hydraulic and vacuum solutions for clients in Australia and overseas in many industries, including mining, manufacturing and water. They would also create a vacuum pump system for transporting fish from ships to the wharf at the world-famous Geraldton Fish Market that is still in use today.That small company is now called Pump Solutions Australasia. Today, they focus on importing and servicing pumps from the foremost manufacturers in the world. However, they are still fully aware of their roots. They know the best engineering provides the best solutions. They also know which manufacturers have the best engineering.Engineering, Pumps and the Typical ManufacturerWhile engineering means everything to Pump Solutions Australasia, it is only one part of the manufacturing process. In a world perfect for engineers, every product that comes off the line would be just as the engineer intended it to be. In the real world, it usually doesn’t happen that way.Engineers are risk averse by nature. They don’t want to take chances. To an engineer, creating a product is a binary process. It either works or it doesn’t work. There is no “grey area.” The engineer creates a design for a specific purpose. He then creates measurements and specific parts out of specific materials to fit the design and do the job perfectly. Engineers don’t take chances because they want their products to work every time, all the time, even in adverse conditions.Sadly, engineers aren’t always listened to. Accountants want the product to cost less. Marketers want it to come to market quickly. Meanwhile, industry requirements may be changing too, requiring higher extremes of temperatures or more pressure. Designs are sent back to engineers with suggestions for adjustments designed to save time and/or money for the company. Engineers have to decide whether to loosen some of the precise tolerances they created or whether to say “no.”Many manufacturers do take shortcuts. They create perfect products and then back them down to a less than perfect model to save money or put a product out to market faster.At Pump Solutions Australasia, this is unacceptable. According to owner Mike Hurlbatt:“We may have a different name now, but we have never forgotten that we are a company that was built by providing engineering-based solutions. And that is why we only import pumps from manufacturers who have developed worldwide reputations based on their engineering. Our clients want solutions, not excuses. The best way for us to provide solutions is to make sure they are receiving pumps that are engineered and manufactured to exacting specifications so they can provide consistent, reliable performance. We simply won’t accept anything less and we don’t expect our customers to, either.” Pump Solutions Australasia import pumps from the finest manufacturers in the world into Australia. They are known for importing only pumps that are the best in their category for reliability, efficiency and long shelf life. They handle any size pumps from small submersible pumps to large, industrial pumping systems such as wastewater plants.

One in 8 are already using these types of services for domestic holidays which is expected to grow 33% in the short term.   China is leading the way globally with share economy adoption which in 2015 was worth US$299 billion and is expected to grow 40% by 2020.                                 Share economy accommodation already accounts for 10% or 13 million Chinese outbound travellers each year. Though the draw to interact more with local people and have new experiences meets key travel motivations, 1 in 4 Chinese still express concern around safety and quality standards.   Ed Steiner, Head of Travel and Leisure at Kantar TNS Australia said, “Though the share economy will continue to disrupt traditional tourism, people are conscious of the risk in variability and the unregulated nature of the offer. As ‘sharing’ grows in popularity, these perceived risks will diminish. To stand out, traditional accommodation providers need to better communicate the value of services where share economy providers cannot compete, and provide greater personalisation and customisation to grow.”     China’s Traveller Becomes More Experimental While group travel has traditionally provided a safety net desirable to most Chinese, the study found that this trend is quickly turning toward Chinese travellers seeking the spontaneity, adventure and flexibility that comes with free independent travel (FIT).   Chinese travellers want to ‘find themselves again’, nourish their souls through new experiences and learn new things. They are motivated to travel outside Asia for experiences which completely differ to everyday life and where there is an opportunity to learn – different customs, cultures, languages, cuisines, scenery and activities.   Top 5 motivations for travel outside Asia: 44% to relax 39% to try something new 37% to feel excited by new experiences 30% to reward myself for hard work 28% to meet interesting and friendly local people   “Although traditional Chinese travellers associate overseas travel with group tours, the rising Chinese middle class and strong economy are creating new drive and incentive to do away with tradition and venture into experimental travel. Australia is well placed to take advantage in the semi-FIT territory by responding to and creating packages that blend pre-booked accommodation and flights with flexible itineraries,” Steiner commented,” Steiner commented.     Rise of Regional Australian holidays The study shows that domestic holiday needs are best fulfilled through regional Australia. Of the key criteria the majority of Aussies look for in a holiday, one in 4 associate regional Australian destinations with peaceful moments of quiet and reconnecting with family and friends.      Top 5 experiences Australians want from holidays: 52% - peaceful, a moment of quiet 48% - leaving the cares of the world behind 40% - re-connecting with family or friends 37% - enriching and fulfilling 36% - indulging and rewarding   While Aussies look for luxury overseas, domestic holidays are more about the value of the experience making mid-range hotels, motels and serviced apartments in the region more relevant.   Despite concern over staying on top of things at work, holidays are non-negotiable in Australians’ lives, with rejuvenation central to the Australian holiday experience.   Kantar TNS’s Domesticate was founded 11 years ago and aims to understand the behaviour of travellers both domestically and overseas to provide strategic insights into what motivates and drives different travellers.   The report provides further guidance to the Australian travel sector to make the most of these opportunities. For more information, please contact:   Kantar TNS is part of WPP AUNZ, Australasia’s leading marketing content and communications group.     Note to editor: Here are a few state-by-state findings.   Australians that use share economy for holidaying domestically:  Those who live in VIC: 1 in 7 (15%)  Those who live in NSW: 1 in 7 (14%)  Those who live in QLD: 1 in 8 (13%)  Those who live in WA: 1 in 10 (10%)     Regional Australia best fulfils Australians’ needs as follows:    -Peaceful, a moment of quiet:  1 in 5 associate regional Queensland  1 in 5 associate regional NSW   1 in 4 associate Tasmania    -Reconnecting with family or friends:  1 in 6 associate regional Queensland   1 in 6 associate regional VIC  1 in 4 associate regional NSW  1 in 4 associate Melbourne 1 in 4 associate Sydney    – ENDS –   About Kantar TNS Kantar TNS is one of the world’s largest research agencies with experts in over 80 countries.

KLIKA BRINGS FORD BACK TO AUSTRALIA 2017-04-03T21:16:10Z klika-brings-ford-back-to-australia MELBOURNE, APRIL 4. KLIKA, Australia’s top 20 online retailer continues to aggressively expand its local operations with its recent appointment as Australia’s exclusive distributor of Ford Power Equipment. This makes Klika the first online retailer to partner exclusively with one of the world’s largest conglomerates. The exclusive Ford product range will comprise Pressure Washers, Portable Generators, Inverter Generators and Water pumps across both domestic and commercial verticals. This partnership agreement will see Klika expand beyond its traditional pure-play online presence and enter the Australian wholesale distribution chain. The agreement takes effect immediately and gives Klika exclusive distributorship for Australia. “Klika’s partnership with one of the world’s most iconic brands is true testament to the strength of our business and represents the next step in its evolution. We are now witnessing the merging of our local omni-channel offering between online retail and bricks and mortar, but rather than imitate our competitors by establishing physical pop-up stores, we will distribute directly via the national retail chains. We are already in discussions with a number of chains which are eager to gain access to the Ford brand, which Australians have loved for over 91 years, said Leo Zaitsev, Klika’s Director of Commercial Operations. “The Ford power equipment range will meet the upcoming strict Australian National Clean Air Agreement standards. We were very particular during our negotiations, as stringent quality, reliability and durability requirements is paramount. It’s definitely very exciting times for us as our growing team looks forward to the journey ahead of us”, Zaitsev continues Recently recognized as one of Internet Retailing’s 10 Rising Stars, Zaitsev concluded by saying “For decades Ford has held a global leadership position in the manufacture and distribution of vehicles and power equipment which will undoubtedly make a positive contribution to our business’ bottom line, especially given the success of this product range overseas”. “Yukon- Klika’s own private label in the online Trade sector, dominates the online retail space and it makes perfect sense to bring together two companies who are both leaders in their fields. The partnership agreement allows us to widen our reach to the high-end power tools market and thereby provide a more comprehensive offering to both our retail and wholesale customers”.

Dowling, who founded Just 1 Call, known for cleaning and polishing major supermarkets including Australia’s blue-chip premium retailers, decided to expand his business interests in late 2015 when approached to take over James’. “The previous owner did have some issues and they have been well publicised but we have moved on from there,” said Dowling, who calls the Gold Coast home. “When I looked at James’ Home Services, I could see the business model itself was sound. I also knew that if I worked on the infrastructure and management processes, I could really turn things around – and I have!” In fact, it took Dowling and his team six months to convince the Franchise Council of Australia to accept James’ Home Services back into the fold. “Let’s be honest. If I hadn’t come in with the right team behind me, the entire company would have collapsed,” he said. “At the time there were 114 franchisees and I felt I needed to save their livelihoods and their families’ livelihood. By reinvesting in the business, I know I have helped those people. They are thriving and I know this because I hear about the success stories every day.” Since taking over the company, five regional franchisors and 47 individual franchisees have joined James’ Home Services, but the team still can’t meet the high demand. “The issue we have is that we need more franchisees around the country to meet the needs of the community. At the moment, almost half of our customer enquiries go ‘unserviceable’, meaning we just don’t have franchisees in the local area able to undertake the work being asked of us. I need people around me to drive the business with me to make it number one in the nation.” Going forward, Dowling has plans to further expand James’ Home Services. “We have already added two services to our offering – pool and spa care and test and tag safety services. We are now looking to establish a commercial arm to service Australia’s larger companies. I want us to be recognised as pioneers and innovators of the industry. We are constantly pumping time and money into ensuring we have state of the art infrastructure to support our franchisees.” Dowling is also a dedicated philanthropist, husband and father. “I love to give back to the community and this job is giving me that opportunity,” said Dowling, who has donated more than $200,000 to charity in recent times. We all know that there is a gap between what the government can provide and what is actually needed. I like the way giving makes me feel. My wife feels the same and we know our children are watching and learning. As they get older, we hope they will follow my lead in helping others whenever they can.” MEDIA NOTE: For further information or to interview Mr Dowling, please contact Wings Public Relations Director Deanna Nott on 0422 504 540.  CCC Window Cleaning Becomes Trusted Cleaner's First Approved Window Cleaning Company In Perth 2017-03-31T04:05:16Z ccc-window-cleaning-becomes-trustedcleaner-s-first-approved-window-cleaning-company-in-perth Perth, AU – CCC Window Cleaning, a Perth-based full-service professional window cleaning business with special focuses in commercial, high-rise and residential homes and buildings, this week announced they have been recognized as TrustedCleaner’s first and only Perth-approved window cleaning business.

The 2016 Cost of Data Centre Outages report by the Ponemon Institute has found the average cost of a data centre outage in 2015 was a staggering $740,357, up 38 per cent from 2010.    While summer heat waves dominated discussion about power supply, it was the spring season that produced the most power outages in both Australia and New Zealand with more than one third occurring between September and November.   “Australia and New Zealand is a diverse, unique climate where almost 1 in 3 power outages is caused by bad weather and trees, so businesses and individuals need to plan for the unexpected. Uninterruptible power systems (UPSs), generators and power management software solutions can help deliver reliable power during outages – reducing the risk of data loss and costs associated with downtime or IT damage.”   This World Backup Day, Eaton is offering a complimentary consultation and Critical Power Site Audit to all Australian and New Zealand businesses that will assess the business’ vulnerability to power disruption. The consultation will provide businesses with recommendations on the steps that can be taken to minimise business downtime. To register for this complimentary service, click here.   Among the most unusual causes of power outages in 2016 included: Hayes Creek, NT: On 21 October, an olive python snake with a magpie goose in its mouth was found looped over a power line following a 30 minute blackout to the area. Eurobodalla NSW: On 15 April, a flying fox plague caused a large number of safety equipment activations resulting in several blackouts over a period of weeks. Canning Vale WA: On 16 November, the maximum-security Hakea Prison and surrounding areas lost power after an earthing wire was stolen. Bathurst NSW: On 31 November, a flock of birds was blamed for leaving 1,573 customers in the dark after they hit a power line which sparked the outage. Ashburton NZ: On 23 November, a cat was lucky to walk away with its life after a fault man tried to rescue it from a power pole. Instead of climbing down the ladder, the cat climbed higher. The power was cut to help it down safely.    Blackout Tracker Annual Report data is based on a full year of reported power outages across Australia. To view and download the entire report click here.
