In an effort to better service customers throughout Australia, supplier of premium quality steel buildings, Wide Span Sheds , are looking to collaborate with local businesses in various rural regions.
“Wide Span Sheds has experienced phenomenal growth in the past decade, and we are looking at building a more prominent presence around Australia. As part of our growth strategy, we are looking at increasing our distribution channels and what better way to do that, than recruiting local business operators who know and understand the community. We have proven systems that work and have generated attractive profits for many of our existing agents. It really is a win-win situation,” Wide Span Sheds’ national sales and marketing manager, James Folwell said.
Wide Span Sheds offer a range of rural sheds, homes and buildings, which are ideally suited for domestic, rural, equine, commercial and industrial applications. Their no compromise steel building sheds use BlueScope steel and these sheds can be customised in terms of length, span and height to best meet their customers’ requirements. They also supply a large range of optional extras to ensure their buildings exceed customer expectations.
Having watched his own customer base grow, owner of Whittlesea Sawmill and Wide Span Sheds’ authorised agent, Stuart Lord, said the increase to his bottom line is testament of the value added by incorporating Wide Span Sheds’ products into his own product mix. “We have formed a very strong relationship with Wide Span Sheds … it has certainly helped us grow our business and has really helped us with our own marketing,” said Stuart.
Stuart said that he was able to diversify his product range, with very little capital outlay. He said the additional product offering and larger target market had effectively boosted traffic and given them the chance to exploit untapped opportunities. James Folwell agreed, saying that one of the major benefits of becoming a Wide Span Sheds agent is that you are potentially recession proofing your business. “With three major market segments – rural, industrial and residential, there are endless prospects to pursue,” said Folwell.
Wide Span Sheds is an Australian owned and operated business located on the Gold Coast in Queensland, and they currently have 70 agents throughout Australia.
