Lighter Note: WA on the world scene

It’s not just our miners who are international players. The Note is regularly bowled over by those rushing from West Perth to all manner of exotic locations, all because those from the city’s own golden mile can read dirt like the rest of us understand a children’s book. But frequent flier points are also being earned by those who don’t have geology in their veins. Earlier in the week, we were reminded of this when some international bad news hit, prompting one local player to let the market know they had fared OK. South Perth-based Style Ltd, which makes flooring products from Chinese bamboo, made it clear that the weekend’s horrific earthquake had not badly disrupted its operations which are in the affected region. Back in West Perth, Hillcrest Litigation Services Ltd showed it is not constrained by borders or oceans either. Hillcrest have taken on a new client in South Africa’s National Potato Cooperative Ltd which has made a claim against its former auditors PricewaterhouseCoopers for a cool $73 million or thereabouts.
