Maddison Safety was incorporated over 20 years ago in the city of Lake Macquarie. Keith Maddison began trading in a shared rental premises at Warners Bay with only one other employee. The Company then relocated to Gateshead where we established a manufacturing section, and gradually employed more staff. Extensive growth and expansion saw us outgrow the premises at Gateshead and in August 2006 we moved the business to our current position in Cardiff. In 2008 we opened a branch in Singleton to service our growing market in the Hunter Valley. The business has also continued to expand in Newcastle with an extension on our building at Cardiff which has doubled its size. This now enables us to have designated areas for receiving and dispatching to align with our quality standards. Maddison Safety now employs 30 people and our aim is to provide a happy, friendly and safe work environment for our employees. We are proud to be a locally owned and operated company, employing local people.
At Maddison Safety, we are very proud of the reputation we uphold in the Hunter, Lake Macquarie and Newcastle region. In the past 5 years our markets have expanded and we now service accounts in most states of Australia. Maddison Safety provides an honest, consistent service which has been successful for us from day one. Our Account Managers are trained to provide their customers with knowledge to create safer work environments.
Maddison Safety would also like patrons of this raceday to support Charlie's Run For Kids charity. Bucket collection will be available for patron participation just inside the main gates. Stubby holders and hats will be available for purchase. Charlie's Run 4 Kids is a local running group that raises money for a family. Our number one supporter Charlie Carr lost her battle with Neuroblastoma in April 2015. The charity continues to support other families and hospital facilities where these brave people fight their battles. Just recently the team completed a 150km run over five days from Seal Rocks to Dudley to raise money for Logan Taylor who lost his battle to brain cancer on the 25th of September. If you would like to know more about this great charity, please head to their website Charlie's Run For Kids.
Gates are scheduled to open at 12.00pm - First race is scheduled for 12.59pm and last race at 5.16pm.
Courtesy Bus will run three times from Newcastle Racecourse to Hamilton Train Station from 5.30pm.
