Quik Corp Gives Back to Local Community
As a company with close ties to the Sunshine Coast community, Quik Corp recognizes the importance of Wishlist’s charitable work in the close-knit community and are extremely proud to have partnered with them to support their efforts, by giving back to local Sunshine Coast families.
The Wishlist Foundation exists to harness the support of local businesses—like Quik Corp—to enhance the work of the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service for the benefit of local families that are visiting the hospital, working to keep families together at critical times of need and offering funding for research and vital medical equipment.
Quik Corp Managing Director, David Wardle, said the company wanted to support something in the local area that they felt made a significant difference to people’s everyday lives.
“After visiting the hospital and seeing what was being done to help, it was an easy choice for us. Our staff can appreciate what it feels like to have a family member or friend ill. It is never a good time. So, to actively contribute to improving facilities and accommodation to help those who are doing it tough, was supported by the whole business as the best way to give back to our community,” Mr Wardle said.
Since 1998, Wishlist with the help of a generous and committed community has raised and directed more than $18 million towards the Coast's local health system.
Annually the foundation pledges more than $1 million towards:
- Research Projects
- Medical Equipment & Support Projects
- Staff Scholarships & Education Funding
Wishlist’s Lisa Rowe said the partnerships are crucial to the foundation and its fundraising efforts.
“In the case of Quik Corp, our charity is proud to be partnered with a cutting edge, locally-based business leader, achieving incredible things in the world marketplace. As with all our partners, Quik Corp shares a passion for the Coast community which is a win for Wishlist and potentially every Sunshine Coast family who visit a local hospital or health service.
“We are incredibly excited to be working with the Quik Corp team,” Ms Rowe said.

Quik Corp Backs Defence Charity for Legacy
An evening of entertainment and charity all in the name of supporting our Aussie troops, the Defence Charity Ball was a fantastic event for Quik Corp to attend. Hosting guests from the corporate scene and Australian Defence Force, the charity ball raised funds and awareness in support of those who have lost loved ones during service, and face hardship after serving in the armed forces.
As a company with links to the defence force, Quik Corp recognises the importance of Legacy’s work and are fortunate to support this valuable charity. Quik Corp were thrilled to be presented with an authentic Australian Flag won at auction, with all proceeds going towards the Legacy fund. The work Legacy does helps to change the lives of the families of those who have served our country.
Individually numbered and a very unique item, the flag was presented to Managing Director David Wardle at Quik Corp Headquarters today.
Hand delivered by the Lieutenant Colonel Stephen Jenkins himself who is on leave from Afghanistan, the LTCOL personally held on to the flag as they flew over Qargha coalition base in Afghanistan.
Complete with a full-sized flag folded into a timber presentation case, memorabilia coins and certification of authenticity, the flag will hold pride of place at the front entrance of Quik Corp's Head Office for all to admire.

Quik Corp Announce Company Expansion
After securing some longer term contracts and a boost in sales from existing and emerging markets, Quik Corp have recently expanded their facilities both locally and interstate to facilitate this exciting growth.
This has seen the addition of a new facility at 89 Cherry Lane, Laverton North in the western suburbs of Melbourne. This sites primary function is to output fire vehicles under a 5 year agreement with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning. The site has 30+ new staff, complete with seperate fabrication, assembly, customisation line and vehicle service centre. We aim to expand on our current work to better service existing and potential customers to provide a stable presence in southern Australia.
Meanwhile in Queensland, Quik Corp's Sunshine Coast site have doubled their warehouse space, expanding their fabrication and assembly lines over two substantial locations. In addition to this, we are also looking to add value to our Crows Nest location. Again the aim is to be able to best react to the market and provide the best possible products and customer service.
Managing Director David Wardle believes that these expansions highlight what is an exciting time for the business. "While presenting quite a number of financial and logistical challenges to get these areas up and running, we could not be more happy with the results. Servicing our clients needs over the past 12 months had been becoming difficult in our existing premises, so this expansion has been very timely. It has led to a broad range of new opportunities and the creation of a lot of new jobs, which in the current climate is even more pleasing. We are seeing a really good return on investment from this increase in quite a short time and are very confident that these expansions will provide sustainable growth long term."
