We take pride in sharing with you news of an exciting development for our company, its employees and our clients. We have entered into a Sale and Purchase Agreement – subject to a few Conditions
Precedent – for Citywide to acquire Gordon McKay Pty Ltd, and our Tasmanian subsidiary Frontline Electrical Pty Ltd.
The sale underwrites the continuation of the Gordon McKay and Frontline business’s in a complimentary harmonious relationship with a new owner that trades under the same values and
principles that over many years has established our enviable reputation in our respective areas of operation.
Equally important, Citywide values the established commercial relationships we have between our clients and our skilled and dedicated employees and staff that has been central to our ongoing business success.
To maintain and build on this strong foundation, there are no changes planned to the structure of our businesses with our management, staff and trades continuing in their current roles. Gordon McKay and Frontline Electrical trading names and branding will be retained.
The sale to Citywide is a commitment to “Business as Usual” for our current operations with the exciting potential to partner with an ownership that presents outstanding opportunities for
expansion and growth.
