Hardware Australia : the Evolution of Hardware : March '19

National Industry Luncheon & Rising Stars 2019

Once again we connected with the timber and hardware community at the Hardware Australia’s National Industry Luncheon event. SYM-PAC is proud to be a long time sponsor of the Hardware Australia and to be part of this event — which lets us show our support for the industry.



The theme for this year was the Evolution of Hardware, with Special Guest Speaker Tim Reardon, Chief Economist of the HIA. You can catch up on Tim’s insights on the current economic climate for the industry, including the latest economic forecasts and trends, at Hardware Australia’s members’ portal.

The celebration of Hardware Australia’s 2019 Rising Stars was held at the MCG — and we have to say that it’s always exciting to see our logo up on the big screen at the ground!

Always a buzz to see our logo up on the big screen at the ‘G!
