One of the best companies that we have worked with over the years is a shop fitting company in Sydney. While they are based in Sydney, they do actually work around the whole of Australia. They actually travel to the jobs and locations to complete their jobs rather than subcontract the work like a lot of trades companies would. With the work that they do, they also pride themselves on the level of quality that they provide.
With this company, not only do they source locally from the Sydney area, they also have a very large focus on giving back to their own community through profits. A lot of the time, people will often go to the cheapest source, even if it is going to other companies around Australia and not in the general vicinity.
There are a lot of times companies would go to another that like to bulk discount, because storage is not near as expensive as companies like to make out. It turns out, you can store materials for shop fitting very easily, and because a lot of these companies practically work in largish warehouses, it’s not uncommon to see companies store their materials that they need after purchasing very large amounts through bulk distributors.
As a company, they are very great when it comes to the quality of their materials and work. They obviously purchase from the best suppliers within their area, and it’s clear in the materials of their work completed.
But they also hire the very best in the area, rather than subcontracting to a random company within the area that they haven’t used before. As you know, when it comes to the trades this part is very important. It’s important that the job is completed correctly, and it’s forgone for the sake of profit.
