On the first anniversary since the devastating floods that hit Queensland, Radcoflex Australia would like to say thank you for those who helped and supported their Brisbane office in their recovery.
On 11 January, 2011 the staff at Brisbane’s Radcoflex office, located at Spine Street in Sumner Park, received news or rising water levels and left work to assist their family and friends defend their homes. However, nothing had prepared them for what they saw when they returned to their office’s street several days later. The Spine Street complex was submerged right to the roofline.
The majority of the suburb was cut off and a jet ski was deployed to investigate the extent of the damage. Like many other businesses, the financial costs was not the concern, the floods had affected the morale of the people who were all too aware of the cleanup efforts ahead.
Despite the difficulties the community of Spine Street faced, local businesses rallied together and helped each other out through lending generators, Gernies, forklift and offering the use of dry storage facilities. Whenever possible, people offered ‘an extra pair of hands’ and always had a smile on their face.
Even though nothing could be salvaged from the Queensland floods, including flexible hoses and expansion joint stocks and many years of information and documentation, the Radcoflex Brisbane team are proud to have rebuilt their factory and office space and are currently in the process of extending the premises.
Radcoflex Australia would like to say thank you to all their suppliers who worked their magic to get them ‘up and operational’ as soon as possible.
Radcoflex would also like to thank their customers who stayed loyal and have been very patient during their recovery period.
