Today is Day One for business at 26 Canterbury Road, Braeside – the new premises of Kinder & Co.
It’s a cause for celebration in many ways. This custom design and build project has taken just over 2 years to come to fruition for Neil and Christine
Kinder, beginning in May 2012 when the first land survey plans were completed. 14 months ago the contract of sale was completed, followed by numerous
council permit applications that had to be negotiated before the construction could be begin.
“We needed to make sure that our new premises would support Kinder & Co’s continuing business growth” said Neil. “Our block size is considerably bigger
so this gave us the ability to think about making improvements to the way that we worked, and deliver a service to our customers that they really needed
and wanted in order to improve their business. Because we now have more shelf space, we can start to offer some of our valued regular customers the option
to hold specific stock items for them. Because we have this capacity, we can be more proactive and assist in planning their inventory which would cut down
on despatch times to site of some of their unique manufactured conveyor and bulk materials handling parts.”
One of the other features of the new premises is a purpose-built training room. Kinder & Co have already been approached by the Institute of Quarrying Australia (IQA) to host several of their continuing professional development courses at the new Canterbury Road
facility, making the most of the hands-on demonstration of conveyor parts installation and best practice maintenance.
“We have been so thrilled with how the physical move has gone” added Christine. “It has meant that we have all needed to work together as a team, and
problem-solve a few minor hiccups along the way – but I’m very pleased to say that it is ‘business as usual’ at 26 Canterbury Road today.”
