Wide format supplier, Starleaton, predicts it will double revenue and office space in the new year.

Driven by demand for dependable wide-format consumables supply, Starleaton’s Melbourne branch is already in the process of relocating from Abbottsford to new premises in Port Melbourne, expanding its warehouse facility there from 400 to 800 square metres. Next up will be the NSW head office, which relocated three years ago and has outgrown its 1200 square metre warehouse in the Northern Beaches suburb of Brookvale.

According to the company’s general manager, Bean Eaton (pictured), the shelves are currently “packed in like sardines” with containers sitting in the car park. “We are actively looking for a 2,500 square metre warehouse,” he said. “With many new lines added, we need more racking space to upgrade our all-important logistics handling.”

Eaton attributes Starleaton’s growth to its longevity and commitment to customer satisfaction. “We are big and experienced enough to get it right, but small enough to care,” he said.

“We are not doubling in size in 2010 for vanity’s sake – it’s because our customers have made it necessary.”
