KWB Group, one of blueAPACHE’s long standing Queensland customers, recently celebrated their five year anniversary and the official opening of their new head office and manufacturing facility in Lytton.
The new office was officially opened by Ross Vaster – Federal MP for Bonner, and celebrations included presentations and partner appreciation awards recognising those who have helped shaped the KWB Group success story.
Representing blueAPACHE at the event were Chris Marshall, Managing Director, Andrew Bird, Territory Manager for Queensland and Brett Webb, Technical Account Manager.
“KWB Group are a strategically significant customer for blueAPACHE and it’s great to be recognised for our contributions. The success of our partnership is founded on both organisations’ laser focus to drive growth through delivering the ultimate customer experience”, said Marshall.
Formed in 2012 after a management buyout of the former Australian Kitchen Industries, KWB Group are a great example of the outcomes that can be achieved when a sound business plan is backed by a savvy management team with a single-minded focus on customer satisfaction. KWB Group have grown their revenues by over 500 percent by focussing on delivering wardrobes and kitchens for the Do it For Me (DIFM) renovator market via their 15 Kitchen Connection and Wallspan retail stores spread across the South Eastern Queensland, Hunter Valley and Greater Adelaide regions.
“We’ve worked closely with Chris Palin and his team to help them realise the benefits of an outsourced ITaaS environment. Over the years, we’ve helped them reduce ongoing investment in infrastructure and resources while creating a platform for growth”, said Bird. “It’s fantastic to not only see their success, but to be recognised as contributing toward it”.
“Our partnership with KWB Group has been a truly rewarding experience and I wish John (Bourke), Chris (Palin) and the greater KWB Group team continued success in the years to come”, continued Marshall.
