Grand opening of the new premises at Axelent Australia
Axelent Australia has recently moved into larger premises in order to provide a better customer service and stock a larger range of the Axelent products. We asked Drew Hoxey, Sales Director, to tell us more about the grand opening and the business in general.
"We have two sales people in Adelaide and one in New South Wales. We have plans to expand with another one based in Victoria during 2019. The office in Adelaide have two employees who takes care of sales support and distribution. We also have two part-time staff (administration, accounting and marketing).”
What sectors do you work with?
“Manufacturing, Robotics, Warehousing, Electrical, Food & Beverage processing and Agricultural. The new growth sector for us in 2019 is pedestrian protection in warehouse environments."
You recently hosted a grand opening for the new office and warehouse. How was the event?
“The grand opening was a great success. We managed to showcase our entire range of products that we now have the ability to keep in stock for Australia and New Zealand. We had guests from all the states in Australia and from New Zealand. The guest were a mix of customers and distributors. We also had guests from the head office in Sweden. Export Manager Stefan Axelsson helped with the cutting of the ribbon."
With the new warehouse in place, what does the future hold?
“The new premises gives us the ability to grow the business and sales across Australia and New Zealand by holding larger stocks, as well as a more extensive range of the Axelent Products."
