Alchin Long Group expands to new facilities
May 30, 2016News
The Alchin Long Group (ALG), is now calling a new Sydney location home, making a move to a larger and better equipped facility to accommodate the business’ rapid expansion in the hardware, building and construction industry.
The brand new purpose-built facility encompasses state-of-the-art industrial design, manufacturing, testing and research capabilities, enabling ALG to cater to its customers and the industry in an even more efficient manner.
Providing a wide range of products and services, including building equipment, outdoor furniture and home repairs, ALG moved to a 12,000 m2 site in Wetherill Park, Sydney, one year ago where over 250 staff members work across the business’ five brands; Doric, Cowdroy, Azuma, Colonial Castings and Lock & Roll.
The move has enabled the group to consolidate and further leverage all of its valuable resources, talent, knowledge and skills from each of the five brands into one central location.
The new facility has also allowed greater collaboration between ALG staff, its various departments and five brands to ensure the group can continue to grow and offer superior quality products and services to the construction, hardware and building industry, and its customers.
According to Group CEO, Nigel Long – who is part of the team of family members running the business – just one year on from the move to the facilities ALG has been working on adding the final touches to the premises, namely a showroom, landscaping and interior design.
“It is great to be in a brand new facility where we have brought our invaluable skills from all five businesses together,” Group CEO, Nigel Long said.
“We have so many great people within the group, and in the past each individual business worked on a different premises. We have now streamlined this to bring our staff and facilities together.
“As we continue to evolve in to this fast paced, ever changing and technology driven world, it was time to bring all of our talent together and begin innovating as one big family. After all, two minds are better than one – so I am very excited to now have 250 minds together!
“The past 12 months have had their challenges, but we are lucky to have such a dedicated team of people all working together, and it has been a fantastic experience being part of this new atmosphere.”
