A TOWNSVILLE construction company has ditched its trademark green for bright pink in a nod to its support of women in the industry as well as two local charities. Mendi Constructions yesterday launched its Think Pink Week to support women in the construction industry and raise money for charities Unlock the Lachs and The Sky Foundation. The construction company will publicly reveal its new pink truck and trailer at tomorrow night’s Strand Night Markets before it hits the streets next week.
Mendi Constructions managing director Jeff Doyle said the company was in the market for two new trucks and believed it was the perfect time for a pretty in pink edition. “We decided to do it to recognise women in construction, quarrying and the transport industries,” Mr Doyle said.
“This is a very male-dominated industry so this a symbol of the great relationship we have with our female peers in business.” Mr Doyle said the company had a goal of raising $15,000 for the two charities, which are both close to he and wife Natasha’s heart. “We want to continue to give back to the community that gives so much to us,” he said.
Mendi Group is also running a colouring competition. Entries can be made at the markets or through
Brothers Leagues Club.
