Toowoomba team meets market with enthusiasm
There’s a distinct ripple of excitement on Stephen Street, Harristown, in Toowoomba’s west this week as Qteq stamps its mark on buildings and vehicles while staff arrive decked out in new workwear.
The successful physical transition follows the purchase of the former WellDog business being financed by ProX Ltd, a company headed by energy and resources venture capitalist Simon Ashton.
But a much bigger transition is happening inside the building, according to Qteq’s Operations Manager, Adam Fitz-Henry, who said that renewed vitality had been injected into the company and his team were excited about a change that represented “a new beginning”.
“We are back in control of our own destiny, and the hard work the team continues to put in will enable even more growth and development,” Mr Fitz-Henry said.
“What’s most exciting is that this will bring about opportunities for our staff and, therefore, our potential is endless.
“You know this change is way more than just stickers and signs. It is an opportunity to put any issues with the previous company behind us and move forward with renewed focus and energy on being the best we can be.”
Mr Fitz-Henry said Qteq’s clients would certainly notice a more local focus, “with greater capacity for providing fit-for-purpose solutions in our low-cost, ‘budget airline’ model that delivers economic innovation”.
“We are a dynamic team and we’re proud of our ability to deliver exceptional service, safely,” he explained. “The personnel who have previously been delivering our unrivalled service here in Australia have not changed.
“Our team has stuck together, not only because of what the future may hold, but because we care about each other, and our customers’ needs.
“Our focus on safety will never waiver, and that has been on display with the incredible efforts of our field team throughout what was a challenging period.
“We have managed to deliver record service levels while under receivership and administration, so imagine what we can achieve with new ownership.”
