“As someone who was taking a leap of faith venturing out for the first time on my own in business, the Business Development Centre provided the ideal situation and support to get established.

Being located at the centre put me at arms length to a number of government programs and workshops, which I could access to assist in developing and growing my business.”

And on starting a new business today?

“Don’t go it alone. There’s support out there. That’s what the Townsville Business Development Centre does.”

Marcel McLeod first opened Totalfab Engineering Services out of our business incubator in 2002. Within a couple of years he dramatically increased his profit and outgrew the centre, moving to his current premises in Rasmussen. He is a great example of the legacy of TBDC and what we strive to achieve.
