Philmac , Australia’s plastic pipe fittings and valves manufacturer and distributor of water management products, has invested for the future of its Queensland operations with a new warehouse and distribution centre.
Located 10kms north of the Brisbane CBD in Virginia, the new 3700m² facility is set to further improve Philmac’s customer service by providing larger, more flexible storage space to enhance product distribution.
General Manager, Jason Mitchell, said that the distribution centre, which includes office, training and storage space and can hold more than 4500 pallets, demonstrated Philmac’s commitment to its Queensland customers.
“Given the expedient growth of the Philmac business, this extra capacity was of great importance when selecting a location and it will deliver an important boost to the number of product lines that we can offer our customers.”
The warehouse was designed to cater for Philmac’s expanding product range, along with the joint distribution of Aquadux products – a distributor of plumbing and building products to the Australian market.
“We had to ensure that the warehouse was able to cope with more than 6000 different products of varying shapes,” National Distribution Manager, Patrick Flood said.
The Queensland site has been utilised since May, and will be officially opened in July. Philmac products are available through a wide range of quality retail locations Australia-wide.
