Any funny or heartwarming stories to share?

Mackay Fluid Power is the reason I am here in Australia, In 2022, I was looking to move from the UK to find a better work life balance for my family, Xiang our COO and George Trusiak reached out to me and here we are. They have supported my family and sponsored us on our move from England. We found immediate comfort from everyone in the team and they all continue to help us along this huge journey of ours and we will be forever grateful. 

Any employees that deserve a shout out?

Every single one of them! They all work as hard as each other. We are a TEAM, and I am proud of each one of them!
