On Friday 5th May, Queensland Gaskets celebrated seven decades of manufacturing excellence among customers, industry figures and supplier partners.
As a third-generation family-run business, Queensland Gaskets has been providing high quality products and services for over 70 years, and the anniversary celebration was a great way to commemorate this milestone.
The event took place at the newly refurbished Jaybel Street premises, with attendees enjoying tours as well as live demonstrations and informative discussions with the team. Delicious food was served and many conversations and stories were shared.
There were speeches from Managing Director, Carl Quarterman, and former Managing Director, Guy Quarterman, who spoke of the team’s tireless dedication and hard work that has gone into the business over the years. Rheinmetall’s Chris Graham also spoke and shared kind words about the valued relationship between the two companies, and the on-going contributions to the Australian defence industry.
Awards were then presented to members of the Queensland Gaskets team who have demonstrated commitment to the company’s core values including recognition of their dedication to quality and customer service. The awards went to Andy Whyatt for Excellence in Accountability, Nicky Young for Excellence in Quality, Anthony Taikato for Excellence in Teamwork, and Byao Gurung for Excellence in Relationships.
Queensland Gaskets would like to sincerely thank everyone who attended on the day, and all of the customers and supplier network that has been a part of the company’s success over the last 70-years.
