Luke Manager


“What encouraged me to follow in the footsteps or my father and grandfather? It was the working lifestyle. They were always able to do stuff, starting early and finishing early. They always had time for family and time to take me to footy games and training. Those sorts of things really appealed to me as I’ve got a young family myself.” Luke – Line Foreman

“If they’re keen to move up and progress, and they’ve got the ‘go’ about them, then it’s endless. They can end up as a plant manager, shift manager, foreman, QA or there’s other corporate roles. A lot of people from head office have moved up from here.” Jordan – Trainee Plant Manager
