What Our Clients Say

A few years ago business became really tight. We were under constant pressure and could really feel the heat building as cashflow became tighter with rising fuel prices and labour costs.

– Brian Harper, Director, Region Peak Transport Pty Ltd

An opportunity presented for me to buy into a business. Whilst I knew the industry, I didn’t know where to start in terms of determining what the business was worth and how I could protect myself and my family.

– Nick Stehr, Director, Healthcare Lifting Specialists Pty Ltd

Thank you Progression Group for caring, assisting in obtaining some restitution and saving our business. We now have the tightest internal control mechanisms of any business!

– Timothy Eagle, Director, Eagle & Stork Plumbing Pty Ltd

Progression Group acted for my business from when it was a small outlet in Coburg turning over $60,000 through to when we sold the business 10 years on, turning over $12m from a large commercial premise based in Brunswick.
