BMA Hay Point Coal Terminal Family Day was held on November 2 presenting a successful opportunity for BMA to welcome staff and their families to a day of celebrations.
While obviously a great day for families and staff of BMA Hay Point Coal Terminal, it has also proven to be a great opportunity for small local businesses to supply to BMA Hay Point through the Local Buying Program.
What was beneficial to the local business community, was that, through the Local Buying Program, 11 local Mackay businesses were engaged to ensure the BMA Hay Point Coal Terminal Family Day was a success.
These businesses were suppliers of a range of goods and services including food and drinks, trophies, cleaning, venue hire and amusements.
The BMA Hay Point Coal Terminal Family Day brought more than $33,000 to small local Mackay businesses.
This is a huge amount going to a range of businesses that wouldn’t usually see themselves supplying to major mining organisations.
