Their monthly revenue has increased threefold, and their business has grown from being run from over the kitchen table, to having a factory with a team of 11 people in that short time.

He had a greater understanding of the importance of numbers. Glenn quickly realised he had to stop thinking like a locksmith and start thinking like a businessman.

Paul McRedmond, Stefan Shulz and Ross McDonald purchased Traffic Diversions Group in 2012 with a vision of become the “best traffic control company in Victoria”.
