Brain Industries sponsor Aussie Ark animals and recruit new team members

Brain Industries has recruited new members to its team, including a Tasmanian devil, koala and a brand-new Product Manager–Conveyor Products & Mining, Garry Mott.

Managing Director, Gillian Summers, said the team has named the male Tasmanian devil, Sir Neville the Devil.

And they are calling the female koala – Princess Poly (after polyurethane, which Brain uses to manufacture of their few products.)

Garry brings with him 30 years of experience from a variety of engineering, workshop management, andsales roles to the team.

Gillian says Garry has already hit the ground running to boost the domestic sale and export of Brain’s locally manufactured conveyor system products, such as belt cleaning devices, pulleys, and lagging.

“Garry will also be supporting our mining industry clients with customised solutions and product including pumps, vacuum recovery systems and stone dusting equipment.”

Gillian said the sponsorship of Aussie Ark is one-way Brain Industries and its staff can give back to the community to solve a major problem.

“We admire and share Aussie Ark’s focus on successfully developing innovative solutions to problems.”

“Aussie Ark now has 2,000ha of land in Barrington Tops,which they are gradually fencing, and they aregetting rid of feral animals so they can introduce native species.

“On a visit to Aussie Ark, Gillian learned feral cats and foxes are a major threat to Australian mammals. There’s also environmental degradation from rabbits and other introduced grazing species, as well as invasive weeds, such as Scotch Broom, displacing fauna-friendly rainforests, and woodlands in the Barrington Tops’ highlands.

“The success of Aussie Ark in helping to save the iconic Tasmanian devil from extinction has led to it expanding to being an innovative life raft for seven threatened Australian wildlife species,” she said.

Gillian encourages other businesses to support Aussie Ark or other charities if and where they can.

“It is a difficult environment for many businesses, but it is also even more challenging for organisations doing such great work to support local people, and local animals.”
