Road maintenance is vital to keep Ipswich moving, and one local company has been at the forefront of constructing and maintaining our roads for over 37 years.
Now, for the first time, RPQ Group from Swanbank is a proud sponsor of the Ipswich Jets for 2021.
With their head office based in Ipswich, there’s a good chance you’ve driven on a road that has been laid and constructed by RPQ, with successful projects all over the country that has them in demand by councils and businesses alike.
Best of all RPQ is a company that likes to be green, in fact one of their products is created from recycled car tyres, as Business Support Officer Stacey Pearce explains.
“RPQ offers a range of Asphalt and Spray Sealing services, and we are very proud of our Crumbed Rubber, which is a sustainable alternative from bitumen that is blended with end of life tyres that would usually be disposed of into landfill, stockpiled or illegally dumped,” Ms Pearce said.
“We cover metro areas as well as going way out west. We predominately cover Queensland and New South Wales but we also do work in Northern Territory and currently have a crew working in Tasmania!”
The company saw an opportunity to support local sport, and jumped at the chance to be involved with the Ipswich Jets.
“RPQ Group are incredibly excited to get behind the Ipswich Jets for the first time this year. As a company we strongly believe in being involved in the community and the Ipswich Jets are a standout sporting team and club within Ipswich.
“We are looking forward to attending the games and networking with other local businesses, while we enjoy getting involved in our community.
“We were a major sponsor for the Mental Awareness Foundation’s Walk for Awareness in Kangaroo Point last year and look forward to getting behind that walk again in October. We are also sponsoring a team of employees for the Gold Coast half marathon, myself included!”
RPQ is also the presenting partner for a new Ipswich event this May.
“We are also sponsoring the first ever Planes, Trains & Autos event which is being held over the May long weekend at the Workshops Rail Museum and at Willowbank Raceway!”
Look out for the RPQ logo at Jets this season, and remember that driving to see the team may have you on a road that the sponsor built.
“Local sport provides so many opportunities especially to young members of the community,” Stacey added. “Having children getting involved in local sport is a great way to start their commitment and dedication which then helps through schooling and developing a great work ethic.”
