Local businesses team up to support others

Steve Donaldson from Display Power Group delivers the new hand sanitiser unit to Member for Gosford Liesl Tesch.

Two Central Coast businesses have teamed up to provide personalised automatic sanitisation stands for businesses, sporting clubs and community organisations as fears of a second wave of COVID-19 in NSW grow.

West Gosford based Display Power Group and Onyx Coffee Spirits have joined forces to deliver the stands.

Display Power Group owner and manager, Travis Canobie, said supporting other local businesses had always been central to the organisation.

“Our objective with the sanitisation stand was to produce a personalised and good quality product for our community, without breaking the bank,” he said.

“As part of our business model we’ve always prided ourselves on ensuring that we source what we can from the Central Coast and this product is no different.

“We’ve been working with Onyx Coffee Spirits for a while and we wanted to ensure with our sanitisation station we could provide a complete product.

“We have always recognised the importance of Central Coast businesses supporting other local businesses all year round, but now it’s more important than ever to drive that value home because if we don’t support each other who will support us?”

Member for Gosford, Liesl Tesch, was one of the first to order a sanitisation unit.

“Here on the Coast we are all about supporting each other in good and bad times,” Tesch said.

“It’s amazing to see our local businesses stepping up and teaming together to keep us all safe and healthy while at the same time working to keep our local economy afloat.

“These last couple of weeks have shown just how quickly COVID-19 can spread and it’s a serious and timely reminder that we are still not in the clear.

“We all need to keep our hygiene practices up to ensure we are protecting ourselves and each other,” Tesch said.
