Whitsunday Times - - BETTER BUSINESS -

TO IM­PROVE the safety of your loved ones at sea, check out the lat­est tech­nol­ogy, prod­ucts and in­for­ma­tion now avail­able at Twenty16 Com­mu­ni­ca­tions.

The ma­rine elec­tron­ics busi­ness of­fers a pro­fes­sional ser­vice for the sale and dis­tri­bu­tion of qual­ity brands and has the skill to in­stall, ser­vice and sat­isfy your elec­tronic and com­mu­ni­ca­tion needs on the wa­ter.

Twenty16 Com­mu­ni­ca­tions is the brain­child of own­ers Laz Reynolds and Garry Pe­tot who opened the doors to their busi­ness at the Hawkes Boat­yard of Abell Point Ma­rina last Fri­day.

Mr Reynolds, who was born and raised in the Whit­sun­days, jumped at the op­por­tu­nity to bring his fam­ily back to his home­town and open a busi­ness to bet­ter serve the re­gion.

Both men have served in the Aus­tralian De­fence Force and have back­grounds in the com­mu­ni­ca­tions in­dus­try.

Mr Reynolds worked as an avion­ics tech­ni­cian in the Royal Aus­tralian Navy for 20 years while Mr Pe­tot, who was an in­fantry of­fi­cer in the Aus­tralian Army for 10 years, built a path­way into IT and com­mu­ni­ca­tions while posted in Cabar­lah.

The pair crossed paths in 2009 when they were both em­ployed at a leading com­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pany in Rock­hamp­ton.

“Due to our mil­i­tary back­ground in com­mu­ni­ca­tions, we had very sim­i­lar un­der­stand­ing of how we would like to run a busi­ness and thought we could of­fer a point of dif­fer­ence to Air­lie Beach,” Mr Reynolds said.

Both men pride them­selves on of­fer­ing a high level of cus­tomer ser­vice with qual­ity work­man­ship that is backed by leading brands and a full ser­vice war­ran­tee.

“We of­fer a 12 month war­ranty on our work­man­ship and are happy to of­fer our ser­vices out of hours by ap­point­ment,” Mr Pe­tot said.

Twenty16 Com­mu­ni­ca­tions is a Ray­ma­rine dis­trib­u­tor and ser­vice agent and are ac­cred­ited to un­der­take an ‘on-board’ war­ranty on all ap­proved in­stal­la­tions.

The busi­ness also stocks the lat­est range of au­topi­lots, fish fin­ders, GPS, in­stru­ment dis­plays, ma­rine au­dio, cam­eras, ra­dios and radars, satel­lite, soft­ware and ther­mal imag­ing prod­ucts.
