John Winning, CEO, commented in a press release, “we are pleased to announce that we will be taking over the lease from Liebe and Haus, of what was their largest showroom, in Osborne Park and opening a Winning Appliances Commercial head office and showroom.”
“Our continued investment in the WA market will ensure that the local building industry will continue to benefit from our unrivalled experience, local knowledge and our offering of the world’s best appliance brands.”
The company hopes to move into the 1235 sqm commercial showroom in July, which is located closely to the company’s retail showroom.
“We will also be opening a new 14,000 sqm, purpose built distribution centre in Kewdale later this year, following strong online and offline growth,” Winning told Inside Retail, noting the company’s 28 per cent sales growth for the month of May.
“We are always open to new opportunities, so watch this space.”
The move comes just 3 weeks after a new WA management team was appointed; general manager Damien Reeve and sales manager of project builders Kevin Saxon.
“Kevin’s 40 years of knowledge, combined with Damian’s experience and talent, will ensure that we will continue our rapid growth of our commercial business in Western Australia,” Winning said, “whilst continuing to deliver exceptional service and solutions to all sectors of the building industry in Western Australia.”
“We believe there are huge opportunities in the West Australian market and we are confident that the building industry will continue to benefit from our unrivalled experience.”
