Trans­port firm rapt for teams

Gatton Star - - Hawks Flying High -

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.”
