Willhart scores WACA board

Howzat! The WACA has signed up the Subiaco-based, publicly-listed company Willhart Ltd to put some technology runs on the board at its slightly down at heel Nelson Crescent headquarters.

Willhart will initially provide electrical and mechanical “facilities solutions” for the cricket ground.

It is also likely to work with the WACA on its ambition to develop a “smart” sports stadium.

That may mean patrons will be able to order up food and grog electronically by touching a screen display in corporate boxes and the members’ stands.

Willhart provides management for the monitoring, measurement and control of operations as diverse as a CBD office tower, a state rail utility and a global telecommunications service.

The share price has been as high as 60c this year and as low as 15c. Recently it perked up to 23c.

The company incurred a loss of $2.1 million for the year to June 30. Willhart CEO Ken King predicts a turnaround in the current year. He is forecasting net profits of $2 million on doubled revenue of $17 million.

The WACA needs all the help it can get. With no more AFL games at the ground, executives are praying that the second Australian Test against the West Indies in December can somehow last a full five days.
