Transport firm rapt for teams
DESPITE being a state-wide business, Rocky’s Own Transport recognises the importance of local communities and takes pride in supporting and giving back to the regions within which it works.
Starting out with only two trucks, Rocky’s Own Transport has come a long way since first hitting the roads in 1985.
Over 27 years it has grown to a fleet of 137 trucks today.
Rocky’s Own Transport CEO Bryan Smith said the company had depots in Helidon, Yarwun, Brisbane, Kalgoorlie and Rockhampton and strived to always give something back to communities with which they did business.
“We try and sponsor a sports team within those towns to be a part of the community and to put back into the community,” Mr Smith said.
“Far too many businesses don’t put back into the community and we try to give back to the areas where so many of our people work.”
Rocky’s Own Transport has been operating in the Lockyer Valley for nine years and standing true to its word on giving back, it has thrown its support behind the Gatton Hawks reserve grade for a number of years.
Mr Smith said it was a proud moment to see the Hawks break a significant finals drought and to bring home the silverware for 2013.
“It was good, the boys were all pretty happy,” he said.
“It’s a great achievement and great to see them win the premiership.”
