Their growth is no fluke and is testament to a lovely family providing great service to their customers. The Port of Brisbane have provided them with an outstanding solution that is going to be a first class facility, allowing their projected future growth.”

    The agreement was negotiated by Shaw Harrison from Savills, with the facility to be designed by SPARC* Architects.
