OneSteel Metalcentre Wagga and Leeton move to new premises
Responding to the need for future growth and enhanced customer service, the Metaland stores in Leeton and Wagga consolidated their operations and transferred to a larger and refurbished facility on April 30, 2014.
The new facility at the Bomen Industrial Park will be known as OneSteel Metalcentre Wagga, part of the national network of OneSteel Metalcentre branches.
According to Greg Mitchell, Southern NSW Regional Manager, OneSteel Metalcentre, the consolidation of these two local branches into one much larger facility allows the new OneSteel Metalcentre to better service the Riverina region with enhanced supply and product offerings.
“The new OneSteel Metalcentre facility will have a larger loading area for trucks, better storage facilities, an overhead crane for moving bigger loads, and overall, a better layout for all the material we stock, sell and move,” said Mr Mitchell.
“We have added an additional delivery vehicle to our Wagga fleet to ensure our servicing of the entire Riverina district, including Leeton and Griffith, remains first class.”
“We have been servicing the Riverina under various brand names since 1981, and this move is part and parcel of our ongoing evolution into Australia’s foremost steel products supplier.”
“As part of an integrated national network of branches offering an expansive range of processing solutions, products, project management and technical expertise, these changes mean we will be better able to better service our growing customer base in the Riverina and provides a good foundation for any future expansion of the business.”
“As an Australian company that has built up strong local relationships and has been very much part of the fabric of the Riverina region for over 30 years, we are looking forward to starting at the new site to continue to provide the very best possible customer service,” said Mr Mitchell.
The new OneSteel Metalcentre facility was open for business on May 1, 2014, and is located in the Bomen Industrial Park, Byrnes Road, Wagga Wagga.
