There’s an extra BOUNCE in our step as Industrial Rubber Supplies join the fam

Industrial Rubber Supplies (IRS) has signed on to the Cockburn Basketball Association as a platinum partner for 2021.

IRS provides rubber, hardware, tapes, sealants and cutting services to customers across Australia, New Zealand and the world.

Excitingly, IRS is run by the Stuart’s, a local Cougar Family with strong ties to our junior competition and WABL programs.

Cockburn Basketball Association Chief Executive Tyrone Thwaites said it was pleasing to link up with a family so heavily involved inside the Cougar Family already.

“Jane and her daughter Caitlyn have been involved in our community for nearly five years,” Thwaites said.

“In that time Caitlyn has been a part of our WABL program, represented [and coached for] the Spearwood Hawks Basketball Club, and Jane has managed our State Championship teams as well as played domestic basketball herself.

“To build on that relationship with a partnership alongside IRS is something we are very excited about.

“IRS have both a commercial and retail part of their business, and we are excited to showcase both sides of the business to our community through NBL1 game night activations and a permanent presence on our Troy Clarke show court.”

The Cougar Family will be hard-pressed to miss the presence of IRS, with their brand new sign located directly underneath the scoreboard on court one.

IRS is a family owned business based in Welshpool, and Jane Stuart [from IRS] said IRS has partnered with other sport associations connected with their employees’ children, so it made sense to partner with the Cougar Family.

“It was a further step to help grow the grass roots game and health that kids sport provides,” Stuart said.

“Caitlyn [Jane’s daughter] and I have both been active participants for a number of years at Cockburn, so the timing was right to bring IRS into that as well.”

IRS has become a specalist value add manufacturer, supplier and stockist of a broad range of industrial rubber, motor body hardward, sealants and tape products, as well as a high quality cutting service.
