August 2008 – Sureflo

Outstanding Business of the Month: Sureflo

Macarthur Workplace Learning Program (MWLP) connects business with students for ‘hands on’ learning. Each month a dynamic Macarthur business is selected from student evaluations and Sureflo Exhaust is the latest well-deserved winner.

Operating in Ingleburn since 1991 Sureflo Exhaust specializes in exhausts from standard cars to performance and race cars. It is the only exhaust shop in NSW that has a dyno (dynamometer) that measures car power to ensure what exhaust system will work best.

Sureflo Exhaust has been providing work placement for students for seven years. Owner and manager Greg Stevenson says MWLP’s program “is a great way to find keen young people to fill positions within the company. Several of these students have been employed as casuals during school holidays and weekends and it keeps us in touch with the youth market. They even help to bring us customers, long after they have left school.”

Students get the opportunity to learn stick, mig and tig welding. They can use the plasma cutter (which apparently is great fun). They use air tools to cut pipe, polish stainless steel and are shown how to use a tube bender. This is vital ‘hands on’ learning for those students studying Metal and Engineering.

Greg commented that over the years he has been impressed with the calibre of the students. He is more than happy to continue taking students and having won MWLP Business of the Month, Sureflo Exhaust will receive profiling in the Macarthur Chronicle, 30days free advertising on C91.3fm, exposure on MWLP’s website and thanks to Greater Union Macarthur, Gold Class movie tickets.

In his spare time Greg’s passions are fishing and drift car racing. Sureflo Exhaust owns, maintains and races a Nissan 300ZX Gen 3 V8. Greg loves living and working in Macarthur. “Macarthur is a great place to live. It has virtually everything here without the hussle and bustle of the city”, he said.
