TAC News 2020 Vol. 1


What an incredibly unforgettable and challenging start to the year we have all had!

Record summer temperatures, calamitous bushfires, statewide power outages threatening major disruptions to homes and essential services and then, with hardly enough time for any of us to catch our breath – we were pulled into the global COVID-19 pandemic, plunging into a national state of uncertainty that affected lives at every level.

In the case of the bushfires we at Tomago Aluminium, like everyone else in Australia, were able to help. Some did it physically as Rural Fire Service volunteers, most of us did it financially and we were not backward in coming forward.

We dug deep to help our ‘firies’ and as a group raised an impressive $50,000 which was divided equally between our four local RFS units - Salt Ash-Williamtown, Medowie, Thornton and Raymond Terrace.

Just as we were recovering from the bushfires, the COVID-19 crisis bared its teeth and even before the full effects of the disease were being felt around the country we were making plans at every level to bring the business through the pandemic using methods that would keep everyone safe at work while maintaining production.

I am extremely pleased to say our careful planning brought complete success, despite everyone having to work with a constantly changing situation and it should come as no surprise to anyone that we dealt with COVID-19 the Tomago way – together.

I hope you enjoy this edition of TAC NEWS and let me say thanks, once again, to everyone for the ongoing support and the great effort put in to help meet those incredible challenges.

Please enjoy reading our latest edition of TAC News here.

Best regards,

Matt Howell - CEO
