And the wall came tumbling down.

The expansion strategy of trade supplier Spandex continues with the Queensland branch adding 350sqm to its warehousing capacity by knocking down a wall between its existing facility and the space it has leased next door.

“We’re delighted with the extra space and our customers will soon experience the benefits.” said Eugene Quigley, Queensland Branch Manager.  “Now the wall has come down we’ll install fire doors and more racking and then we’ll be ready to roll with 50% more space than previously. This is in response to higher demand for same-day and next-day deliveries.  It’s all about better service for our customers. We pride ourselves in carrying local inventory and since our move into rigid substrates from 3A Composites, more space was needed for boxes 3.2 x 1.6m wide.”

Earlier this month, Spandex continued is global expansion with the acquisition of Proga Plastics, a well-established Dutch/Benelux supplier of rigid sheet, rod and tube materials for graphics producers. The move adds further rigid media products to Spandex’s portfolio of materials as well as custom cutting capabilities.

Spandex serves over 30,000 customers in more than 15 countries and is one of the world’s leading trade suppliers to the sign making and display industries. The company specialises in the sales, distribution and support of digital printing, cutting, routing, and laminating systems.

Spandex Queensland is located at Yatala, about halfway between Brisbane and Southport on the Gold Coast and adjacent to the M1 freeway that connects with regional Queensland markets.
