Adam Sarota from Bridgeman
Adam Sarota is a proud Yidinji man from Gordonvale in Far North Queensland. You may recognise him from the football field, having had an enviable career which includes being a three-time Socceroo and Brisbane Roar midfielder.
But Adam has also been kicking goals outside of the football field.
One of these accomplishments is becoming an owner of Bridgeman Stainless Solutions in Brendale just over three years ago. As the Managing Director, Adam manages a team of around 80 employees and oversees a huge variety of projects—ranging from residential kitchens to large-scale mining and construction projects.
This includes creating customised metal products for the defence industry, for example, delivering a commercial kitchen at the Military Vehicle Centre of Excellence in conjunction with Besix Watpac, an international construction group.
“Joining the defence supply chain has been an important addition to our client base, creating new and ongoing revenue streams for our company.
“This ultimately means more jobs for Queenslanders, and greater security for our current workforce.
“We have also facilities operating in Townville and Cairns and we want to continue to keep supporting our regional communities in this way.”
Adam is just one of the faces of defence industries in Queensland. This sector provides thousands of jobs for Queenslanders, so we’re helping it grow even stronger.
