Young entrepeneur shows a mind for business

Sunshine Coast local and entrepreneur, Tony McMahon, is well on his way to becoming one of the Sunshine Coast’s newest ‘movers and shakers’, launching his second successful business, Commfix, at the young age of only 26.

Following the success of his first company, Dr Mac, a Mac service and repair business, Tony launched Commfix, a mobile technology service provider in June last year and business is booming.

Tony said the idea for Commfix came from his own personal experiences with long waiting times to have his iPhone repaired.

“The typical waiting period to have an iPhone or iPad service and repair is between 3 to 8 weeks, which is far too long in my opinion, ” Tony said.

“I realised there was a real need for improvement in Australia’s IT service industry and saw an opportunity to create a service that was more responsive,” Tony said.

Commfix is a dedicated iPhone/ iPad service centre offering white conversions and instant or same day repairs, a concept almost unheard of within the IT industry.  Since it’s launch only a year and a half ago, the company has continued to go from strength to strength, now staffing four Apple-trained technicians.

“The business is has taken off really quickly and we have already had to move to a bigger premise to accommodate our growing number of clients,” Tony said.

Tony has big plans for the company, and has just returned from Europe to foster international development and research new products. Whilst in Europe, Tony also visited Gold Striker, a company that specialises in producing diamond and gold iPhones and cases.

But it doesn’t stop there; he is also in the process of expanding Commfix and its services to offer same or next day repairs to Australasia.

“We are aiming to set a new benchmark for iPhone and iPad service waiting periods not just on the Sunshine Coast, but throughout Australia and New Zealand too,” Tony said.

“At Commfix, we understand that your mobile phone is not only a business tool, but also a day-to-day life manager, so when your iPhone’s not working, you’re not working,” Tony said.
