PLAE and BeaverFit formalise partnership to boost athletic training options in Oceania
May 11, 2020

Leading sports flooring provider PLAE and functional training equipment suppliers BeaverFit have agreed a new joint-venture to expand athletic training solutions in the Oceania region.

PLAE’s new formal partnership with UK-founded BeaverFit presents an expanded range of athletic training solutions and follows the two companies having collaborated on a number of projects globally in recent years.

The partnership, which is set to increase their scope within the industry, will see PLAE’s Australian-based office, in collaboration with BeaverFit, manufacture the Beaverfit range in Australia, adding it’s diversity of outdoor training solutions to its already extensive consultative offering.

Founded in 2010 by Tom Beaver, BeaverFit is the original designer and manufacturer of patented shipping-container training lockers. BeaverFit training solutions have been used by military units worldwide in need of a flexible and semi-permanent training solution for large groups.

With PLAE’s extensive background and experience with professional sporting clubs, schools, universities and council projects, being able to able to partner with BeaverFit to offer end-to-end outdoor training solutions for Australian clients is seen as a solution that will solve industry limitations.

PLAE’s continued innovation and growth throughout Oceania has seen major projects completed in recent times at the Canberra Raiders Centre of Excellence, St Kilda Football Club, Shore School Physical Education Centre, YMCA Hawthorn Aquatic and Leisure Centre and many more private and commercial facilities.

In a statement, the company advised “the new joint venture with BeaverFit will see PLAE take new steps into the outdoor training space, combining its experience in surfacing and customised solutions with BeaverFit’s Training Lockers. PLAE will project manage and maintain all elements of the process throughout the Oceania region, from civil and structural reviews through to equipment design, engineering, accessories, concrete base preparation and construction.

“In consultation with PLAE's in-house Design and Construct team, a previously under-utilised area within a school campus, a council carpark, a sporting club’s training base or a commercial gym facility can now be converted into a dynamic training experience for athletes of all kinds.

“A true partnership in every sense, PLAE and BeaverFit look forward to enhancing the training experience throughout the region in the coming years.”
