Long Standing Members Honoured. Visit to Advanced Metal Industries
On Wednesday 13th of September 2017 the members of the Rotary Club of Coffs Harbour honoured two of their longest serving members, Ken Hall with 40 years service to our community and Ossie Benson with 48 years service. The presentation took place as part of a vocational visit to Ken’s former business, Advanced Metal Industries Australia now owned and operated by Chris and Rick, two of Ken’s sons.
Advanced Metal Industries Australia provided the venue, a brief quality presentation followed by tours of their packing and distribution, powder coating and metal fabrication factories. Our members learned the business has a turnover of more than 10 million annually up from 5 million in 2009, employing 62 local staff, and spending over $500,000- on freight alone annually.
A huge thank you to Rick, Chris, Tim, Wayne and Pat for their hospitality well into the evening after a full days work to make our vocational visit a huge success.
