The Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section) understands the power that comes from meaningful partnerships.

Through a partnership with outdoor power equipment supplier Roy Gripske and Sons (RGS), the Flying Doctor is able to keep flying.

With a shared understanding of working in remote and rural communities, RGS has decades of experience in innovation and servicing customers throughout Australia.

Roy Gripske & Sons Managing Director Paul Gripske said that they see some similarities with the RFDS as a company with no geographical boundaries.

“We continue to grow and service our customers regardless of geographical boundaries within Australia,” Paul said.

“The RFDS don’t have geography boundaries either, offering health services to some of the most remote parts of Queensland and Australia.”

Paul looks forward to continuing to support the organisation, with another three-year agreement as a Major Corporate Supporter now finalised.

“We believe it’s important to give back and invest in our rural and remote communities, where our customers are,” Paul said.

“I am proud of the partnership we’ve had with the Flying Doctor for the past three years, and I’ll continue to support them for at least another three.”

Paul said the Royal Flying Doctor Service meant more to him than first meets the eye, with good friend Bevan Jibson having an aircraft name after him, following his significant contributions to the flying doctor.

RGS support the RFDS (Queensland Section) in a number of ways, but most recently, their BushRanger Power Equipment brand donated an additional $20,000 to the inaugural national RFDS Oceans to Outback Challenge as the first match-giving partner for the campaign’s matched giving day.

With the help of over 5,700 Australian participants and RGS, the campaign generated more than $1 million over the month of October 2022.

Roy Gripske & Sons Pty Ltd has been providing quality products and support to its customers in the Outdoor Power Equipment Industry for over thirty years.
