After securing multiple long-term contracts and a boost in sales from existing and emerging markets, Quik Corp has recently expanded its facilities both locally and interstate to facilitate this exciting growth.
This has seen the addition of a new facility at 89 Cherry Lane, Laverton North in the western suburbs of Melbourne. This site’s primary function is to output fire vehicles under a 5-year agreement with the Department of Environment, Land, Water, and Planning. The site has 30+ new staff, complete with separate fabrication, assembly, customisation line, and vehicle service center. We aim to expand on our current work to better service existing and potential customers to provide a stable presence in southern Australia.
Meanwhile, in Queensland, Quik Corp’s Sunshine Coast site have doubled their warehouse space, expanding their fabrication and assembly lines over two substantial locations. In addition to this, we are also looking to add value to our Crows Nest location. Again the aim is to be able to best react to the market and provide the best possible products and customer service.
Managing Director David Wardle believes that these expansions highlight what is an exciting time for the business. “While presenting quite a number of financial and logistical challenges to get these areas up and running, we could not be happier with the results. Servicing our client’s needs over the past 12 months had been becoming difficult in our existing premises, so this expansion has been very timely. It has led to a broad range of new opportunities and the creation of a lot of new jobs, which in the current climate is even more pleasing. We are seeing a really good return on investment from this increase in quite a short time and are very confident that these expansions will provide sustainable growth long term.”
