Bright sparks keep Mackay charged up
Leveraging the success of the past 14 years, automotive aftermarket parts specialists Ashdown-Ingram Mackay has moved to a larger facility to accommodate increasing market growth.
Now located on Central Park Drive in Paget, the new purpose built facility is providing more parts to Auto Electrical and Thermal specialists in the wider Mackay area, including many mine sites in the Bowen Basin.
Branch Manager Wayne Gilroy is excited about the move and the opportunities on the horizon. “The team has always focused on stellar service but with more room, we can provide more for customers – better service, wider stock range and more products on the shelf”, said Mr Gilroy.
“As we invest in Mackay, the more we can help the local community. It might look like just another building in the estate but with this location comes more opportunity for us to grow and help more auto electrical specialists complete work faster, which in turn helps their business”, he said.
Wayne and the team have worked hard to enable the move to the new site, with their efforts recognised in February when Mackay was awarded National Branch of the Year for the third time in ten years. This is quite the achievement considering they were up against 52 other branches in the Ashdown-Ingram network.
With results like this, it’s no surprise the success of the Mackay branch was instrumental in the North Queensland region being awarded Region of the Year.
North Queensland Regional Manager Mark Crimston was elated with the team’s success and echoes Wayne’s comments. “As Ashdown-Ingram grows, as does the local automotive electrical businesses across the region and country, and the Mackay team are hitting the mark day after day, month after month”, he said.
The new multi-million dollar site holds more stock than their previous location, allowing for better service to local trades as well as mine sites. With more room, the team can even facilitate regional product training from leading brands to make sure auto electrical specialists are up to date with the latest products, innovations and procedures.
