Bundy firm a win­ner al­ready

Isis Town and Country - - News -

A BUND­ABERG company will be at the fore­front of the AFC Asian Cup after man­u­fac­tur­ing in­no­va­tive play­ers’ benches for the com­pe­ti­tion.

Pro­duced by In­ter­seat, the benches will en­sure world-class foot­ballers, lead­ing coaches and hordes of support staff are com­fort­able on the side­lines when AFC Asian Cup matches kick-off across the coun­try next month.

Min­is­ter for Tourism, Ma­jor Events, Small Business and the Com­mon­wealth Games Jann Stuckey said this suc­cess­ful lo­cal ten­der was cho­sen in favour of in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion.

“The New­man LNP Gov­ern­ment’s strong support for ma­jor events is con­tin­u­ing to boost lo­cal busi­nesses, support jobs and build a stronger Queens­land,” Ms Stuckey said.

“Hav­ing the play­ers’ benches de­signed and con­structed by a Bund­aberg company is a vote of con­fi­dence for Queens­land man­u­fac­tur­ers.

“An es­ti­mated global tele­vi­sion au­di­ence of 500 mil­lion will watch the Asian Cup, the big­gest foot­ball event ever held in Aus­tralia and Bund­aberg’s own In­ter­seat will be play­ing a ma­jor part.

“New Queens­land-made benches will also leave an AFC Asian Cup legacy when they are used for Bris­bane Roar home games.”

Ms Stuckey said the work com­pleted for the AFC Asian Cup demon­strated how busi­nesses in all cor­ners of Queens­land could ben­e­fit from up­com­ing ma­jor events sup­ported by the New­man Gov­ern­ment.

The Asian Cup kicks off in Bris­bane on Fri­day, Jan­uary 9.
