Business Gold Coast Testimonials
“Uniline Australia relocated to Yatala in 1987 to take advantage of what the Yatala area offered to growing companies. After over 20 years in the area, Uniline has experienced significant growth and is now located in one of the fastest growing corridors in Australia, with access to well developed transport infrastructure and a constant influx of people who are available for employment. Although Yatala has expanded, the area still has a sense of countryside meeting the city. It’s this community spirit which has limited security risk and enables business owners to talk freely and support each other when needed.”
Gilbert Da Silva, Chief Executive Officer - Uniline

"We set up on the Gold Coast because of the fantastic working environment and business opportunities the coast provides. After coming from Northern NSW we needed to move to a more robust area for business and into the heart of the surf culture and industry. The business climate is solid and attracts people to come and activate programs. The proximity to the airport and to the major surf industry was a big bonus for us. The Gold Coast ticked all the boxes.
Gold Coast City also provides a unique working environment that allows a great lifestyle and amazing opportunity with the flow and drive of a major city. It is Sydney in business terms without the traffic and congestion. It creates a good working environment as people love where they work and live. Being located on the Gold Coast means being located in the heart of the surf industry and in the heart of the best waves on the planet. For a surfing organisation that is essential."
Andrew Stark, Chief Executive Officer - Surfing Australia
