Bromic Global turns 40 this year and to celebrate they’ve created a ‘November to remember’ by engaging all their stakeholders to support three special charities.
From humble beginnings as a one-man start-up supplying gas appliance componentry around the nation, today Bromic designs, manufactures and distributes a diverse range of quality, engineered products on a global scale across the outdoor heating, refrigeration, gas and plumbing industries.
“After four decades, we are still proudly Australian,” said Scott Smith, Bromic Director. “As we celebrate our past and innovate our future, we’d like to thank all the partners, suppliers and customers that have helped to make Bromic an outstanding success story.”
“We also want to use this time to give back to the Australian community by supporting three worthy charities that mean so much to us.”
Beyond Blue, Rural Aid and The Kids’ Cancer Project were selected by staff vote, each receiving a $10,000 donation from Bromic.
Owen Finegan, CEO of The Kids’ Cancer Project visited Bromic HQ in Ingleburn on 9 November and spoke to staff, giving them greater insight to the organisation’s work.
“We’re so grateful Bromic chose The Kids’ Cancer Project as one of the beneficiaries of this special birthday event,” said Finegan. “Every year, 950 children are diagnosed with this insidious disease which is the leading cause of death of children in this country.”
“Like Bromic, our charity started with one humble man driven to do something excellent within the community. For us it was 25 years ago. Since then we’ve committed more than $40 million to childhood cancer research to find kinder, more effective treatments.”

Scott and Michael have pledged to lose some hair for the cause!
“Over the next five years, we plan to invest over $25 million into bold scientific research that has the greatest chance of clinical success in the improvement of treatments of childhood cancers,” said Finegan. “To do that we urgently need the generosity of the community.”
Bromic have rallied supporters, suppliers and staff to give generously to the cause that means most to them and have set up fundraising pages in hope that each charity will receive a further $10,000.
“We’re engaging our community and have thrown down the gauntlet for them to match our donation,” said Sue Tsoromokos, Bromic Group HR Manager. “Together, if we can fundraise $30,000, our directors Scott Smith and Michael Glezerson have volunteered to lose some hair for the cause.”
“Scott’s legs will be waxed and Glez’s head will be shaved - great additional incentives for family, friends and frienemies alike!”
Eager staff members have taken the challenge seriously and a kids’ party themed morning tea was held on 16 November adding funds to The Kids’ Cancer Project tally.

Gavin Kotkin, a Sales Executive, at Bromic is also doing his bit and has set a personal fundraising target of $30,000, which he’s planning to raise by walking from The Kids’ Cancer Project office to work in Ingleburn on Friday 30 November. It’s a 41.3 kilometre trek, inspired by his employer’s 40 year anniversary. It will take around 9 hours to complete the walk, meaning a very early start if he is to be at his desk in time for lunch!
