Summit named Games merch supplier
Queensland company Summit Sport has joined the ranks of GC2018 suppliers with a range of Games merchandise.
The Australian-owned sports manufacturer, which employs a staff of 12, will design GC2018 branded sports goods products including bounce balls, inflatable balls, beanie balls, soft balls, water balls and mini hockey sticks.
Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation Chairman, Peter Beattie, says many businesses across Queensland were experiencing growth and building capacity and capability to take on Games-related projects and sub-licensing rights.
Summit Sport General Manager, Chris Bath, says the company was incredibly excited to be developing product for such an iconic international event.
“Summit has developed product for Melbourne 2006 and Delhi 2010 but to be involved with GC2018, pretty much in our own backyard, has all our team really looking forward to Games-time,” he says.
