Our growth actually endangered our guaranteed stock position and fast deliveries. But it was too risky to simply place an extra layer on existing foundations.
“Our people consulted with the supplier, but it was not easy to find a solution,” Bertus Heuver continues.
Negotiations are underway with potential anchor tenants for the site.
Besides those sites, the company also has land in the Queensland centres of Gladstone and Wandoan – both with development approvals.
“And, thanks to our strong brands, we grew strongly last year in Europe (Aeolus and Barkley) as well as the Benelux (Alliance).
As a result, we ended up being restricted a little by our own warehouse.
In NSW the company bought a development site covering 10 hectares that already has development approval for a 240-room village.According to the wholesaler, capacity issues “endangered the delivery times promised to customers.” In response, Heuver Tyrewholesale examined the layout of its warehouse, and has installed a tailor-made storage rack that increases warehouse capacity by 3,000 square metres.This extra capacity has enabled the wholesaler to increase its stock levels and, more importantly, it has provided Heuver a means of effectively managing its orders so it can “continue offering the fastest possible deliveries” to its customers.“We established a few ambitious objectives a few years ago.However, things advanced faster than we had expected,” comments Bertus Heuver, director at Heuver Tyrewholesale.
