Tropic upgrades to major sponsor

Some lucky North Queensland motorists today benefitted from Townsville-based Tropic Petroleum’s decision to upgrade to major sponsor status with the Toyota Cowboys until the end of the 2014 NRL season.

To celebrate the company’s extension of their partnership with the Cowboys, Tropic awarded $20 cash back to customers who filled up at their Caltex Pimlico outlet during a half-hour fuel blitz.

Cowboys, NSW and Kangaroos forward James Tamou, who has signed on as Tropic’s official ambassador, was on hand to help as many motorists as possible take advantage of the special offer.

“It’s exciting for us as a North Queensland business to be an even bigger part of the Cowboys this season,” Tropic CEO Jamie Regan said.

“The club has been great to deal with and we can see the clear advantages of being part of the Cowboys so we’ve decided to upgrade to the major sponsor level this year.

“One of the other bonuses for us is that we have one of Cowboys’ leading players, James Tamou, on board as an ambassador.

“We’re looking forward to working alongside him again this year.”

Toyota Cowboys General Manager – Commercial Steve Mitchell said Tropic’s decision to sign up as a major sponsor was another strong show of support for the North Queensland club.

“To have a company such as Tropic upgrade their partnership with us is fantastic news for the Cowboys and our members and fans,” Mr Mitchell said.

“They’re a great North Queensland business.”

Tropic services an area bordered by Cairns in the north, Bowen in the south, out west to Winton and beyond into the Northern Territory.
