Melbourne Knights Football Club is proud to announce I&D Group as the club’s major sponsor for the upcoming 2018 season. This will be the sixth consecutive year that the club has partnered with I&D Group, and we are excited to have the now-iconic I&D logo adorning the front of our new Umbro game-day kits.
In 1986, Ivan Filipovic arrived in Australia from Croatia with a small suitcase and today his company, the I&D Group, is one of Victoria’s top three formwork businesses, working with large-scale building and construction companies on landmark projects across the state.
Established in 1994, Ivan and Kathy Filipovic started I&D Group with the vision of creating a safe and vibrant workplace for its employees, whilst also implementing a commitment-driven work ethic, with major focus on delivering projects on time and on budget for all of their clients – these positive qualities have since become the cornerstone of the company’s success.
Involved in numerous landmark projects across Victoria, I&D Group now employs over 700 staff, and is continuing to grow – whilst sharing the fruits of its success via an ever-increasing involvement with community-based organisations throughout Victoria.
In a rapidly changing Melbourne landscape, I&D Group puts safety and compliance at the forefront of their business model, and is constantly focused on going above and beyond the stringent OH&S regulations in order to keep their employees safe, and their project sites running smoothly.
Ivan Filipovic was awarded with the Ethnic Businessman of the Year award in 2014 in the Medium to Large Business category. He wants I&D to be the biggest company of its kind in Victoria and also has plans to branch out into building work.
“The more successful you are, the more you have to share with others,” he says. “I want to take advantage of every opportunity Australia has to offer to become as successful as I can.”
As we enter another year here at Melbourne Knights Football Club, we would like to thank I&D Group for their ongoing support, and we hope to continue representing the I&D brand as we look towards an important year on the park.
