GRAND OPENING DAY NATIONAL DISTRIBUTION WAREHOUSE
On the 5th October we had our Grand Opening at the new facility in Eastern Creek Sydney, NSW.
This was attended by local Members of Parliament, CEO and Secretary General of the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, importantly our customers, some of who had flown in for the day.
Guido Gennasio CEO of the Alfagomma Group took time out if his busy overseas schedule to attend. This was appreciated by all and especially the Alfagomma Australia staff.
The proceedings began with the viewing of the AG video, presenting our business world wide, which was well received.
The building was then officially opened by the Italian Consul General Mr. Arturo Arcano, who presented a plaque to Rick and Guido commemorating the day.
After the official speeches the guests assembled outside for a group photo again as a reminder of this special day.
They then toured the facility, showcasing the office and administration, training areas, also the warehouse and assembly area. The main point of interest was the carousel standing 10.1mtrs in height
by 4.5 mtrs wide, it dominates the warehouse area. All guests were amazed at this exceptional piece of equipment.
As Rick explains “We have invested heavily in advanced inventory management systems and software, installing a state of the art carousel, which is the largest Modula unit in Australia , it will improve accuracy and productivity, this is the way of the future”
Rick went on to say “In reflection, the growth of the AGA business has been extraordinary, since Alfagomma first opened the doors here in Australia in1991, growing to 9 Branches now, also the addition of the Hiflex Mobile Hose Service arm to our business in 2010. The opening was a great opportunity to showcase Alfagomma Australia and the Alfagomma Group”
