Leading privately owned transit media company Go Transit Media Group has announced it has commenced operating from a brand-new, purpose-built production facility.
The Sunshine Coast-based business says the new 750m2 production facility is expected to significantly increase output at the industrial complex in Chevallum.
It was developed by local builder DB Constructions and will be home to up to eight Go Transit production team members.
Go Transit Media Group director of operations and partnerships Caleb Harriott says the new facility provides an increase of 350m2 of space for the business from its previous facility in Maroochydore.
“We are thrilled with the new production facility, it’s modern and spacious and, as the only transit advertising provider in Australia with its own in house facility, we believe this investment will enable us to continue our strong growth trajectory,” Harriott says.
“The new facility was purpose built and includes all of our requirements for the medium to long term along with 144 solar panels which will offset all of our power usage and save the business up to $20,000 per year.
“The Chevallum location also has excellent proximity to the Bruce Highway which will provide greater access and transport options for freight service providers.
“We anticipate that our output and efficiency will improve by 30-50 per cent in the new facility and we are already seeing benefits with our throughput and current volume at record levels.”
Go Transit Media Group was founded in late 2010 by media executives Rob Gamble and Rick Chapman, along with their long-term shareholder Australia’s Associated Media Investments.
As Australia’s only supplier of metro, sub-metro and regional transit, the business has assets across six capital cities as well as more than 400 regional communities in Australia and employs more than 70 staff.
