A message from Stewart Morland
Since our last newsletter IOR has completed the major celebrations associated with our 30th year with functions at Eromanga and Chinchilla. I always feel proud after attending these type events in outback and regional Queensland because of the quality of the people that make up these communities, our great staff and how IOR has been readily accepted as a participating member in these vibrant communities.
Once again a big thank you to everyone associated with IOR over the last 30 years. Ross and I are certainly proud of the company’s achievements.
With these celebrations now consigned to IOR’s history pages we have been busily growing the business with new customers, new staff and of course expanding our sites, products and services available throughout our national network.
Work continues to progress rapidly on our sites in Goondiwindi, Bundamba and Charlton. We now have a permanent staff member working with our customers to identify new sites and fast track them to operational status. Feel free to contact me with any suggestions for the potential locations for IOR diesel stops to ensure we can service your network needs.
In early October I was fortunate to attend the Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprises “Ag in the Asian Century” Conference which clearly demonstrated the tremendous opportunities that the agricultural communities will be exposed to as a result of Asia’s requirements for fresh produce and the opening of the Wagner’s Brisbane West Wellcamp airport.
IOR has been a member of TSBE for almost two years and under the leadership of Chairman – John Wagner and CEO – Shane Charles we now have a membership based group that is clearly driving the economic agenda for the best interests of the surrounding regions and its members.
If you have not attended one of TSBE’s monthly networking functions I urge you to come along and see the benefits that your company is presently missing out on.
With Christmas just over one month away I look forward to speaking with as many of you as possible. IOR is committed to improving our products and services available to all our customers and any input you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to contact either Ross or myself directly.
