About JAX Tyres Gladstone
About JAX Gladstone
Mick and Janette Connolly attribute much of their two sons' work ethic to their teenage years working in the family JAX Tyres Gladstone store.
Starting out as a bank manager, Mick took a plunge into business ownership with wife Janette when they purchased a petrol station on the same site as the current JAX Tyres store they now own.
"We started pumping petrol, then moved into selling second-hand tyres because there was a market for it," Mrs Connolly said.
"It was then 12 years ago that we opened our own JAX Tyres here on the site." The focus is now on tyres, brakes, wheels and suspension servicing.
Heavily involved in the junior rugby union scene in the area, Mick and Janette used the small amount of spare time they had wisely when their sons were young.
"Mick coached the boys rugby union at school and then the boys got their first jobs here as soon as they were old enough to work and they have gone on to be successful tradesmen - they have a very good work ethic," Mrs Connolly said.
"We have a lot of shift workers in town, so we have to work with them," Mrs Connolly said.
