Auto & General revs up with Kawana expansion
Auto & General insurance providers are renowned for avoiding “Captain Risky” in their popular TV commercials but they have every confidence in the Sunshine Coast as an ideal region to grow their business.
The company, part of the international Budget Insurance Group, will expand its current operations at Birtinya to an adjacent 2234sq m site which will house additional staff – a sign of its long term commitment to the Sunshine Coast.
Auto & General CEO Ram Kangatharan said the strong performance and staff commitment at the company’s Birtinya office, along with a growing local economy, meant the Sunshine Coast was a logical place to expand.
“The Sunshine Coast has a very strong vision for the future growth of the local economy and an outstanding plan to help achieve that aim,” Mr Kangatharan said.
“The Regional Economic Development Strategy has outlined the keys to long term prosperity here and this gives us the confidence to continue our investment in this region.”
