Olympic contractor directory out

Olympic identity Rod McGeoch has officially launched the Business Club Australia Directory of Contractors.

Compiled by Business Club Australia in conjunction with the Sydney Organising Committee for the Olympic Games, the Olympic Coordination Authority and the Industrial Suppliers Office, the directory is available both as an Internet file and in hard copy.

It contains detailed information on the more than 220 Australian companies which been involved in the preparation for the 2000 Games.

The companies, which include WA businesses Vigil Anti Slip, Future Engineering & Communication, and Wundowie Foundry Pty Ltd, range from caterers, landscape architects, planners and building management system providers to environmental experts, clothing manufacturers, communications strategists, refrigeration and air-conditioning suppliers and geotechnical engineers.

According to Austrade global manager Olympics and sport David Faulks, who was co-presenter with Mr McGeoch and Australia Sport International chief executive Stephen Porter at the launch, the directory constitutes a showcase of the Australian business capability and expertise that played a major role in ensuring a smooth build-up to the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“The Directory of Contractors is a unique piece of intellectual property that we are confident will play a major role in securing exports for the many Australian companies contained within its pages,” he said.

“The companies listed have already played a key role in ensuring the 2000 Games will prove a major success.

“The directory is a prime example of how we, and our partners in this venture, have combined resources to not only co-promote Australian business and industry capability under the spotlight of the 2000 Games but also deliver long-term economic benefit to this country,” he said.

The Directory of Contractors can only be accessed by Business Club Australia members who now number close to 8,000, including more than 6,000 overseas-based members.
