Coast firms in Q400

SUNSHINE Coast firms have again made a good showing in the latest list of the state's top privately owned companies.

The Q400 list was revealed last week at a gala ceremony which featured Mike O'Hagan, the founder of MiniMovers, as MC. It is dtb's fifth consecutive year on the list and the first time Schultz Toomey O'Brien has appeared.

"It is an honour to be listed amongst such prestigious companies and it reaffirms that our approach to the way we conduct our business is really working," managing partner Travis Schultz said.

"As a region, we should be proud that we have a number of leading businesses who are helping strengthen the economy here on the Sunshine Coast.

"There are many more businesses that, over time, will also make this list; and they too will ensure the economic future of the Coast.

"Considering the economic climate on the Sunshine Coast, it is good to see so many local businesses in the Q400."

The overall ranking of a company is based on revenue performance, profitability and strategic outlook for growth.
