Global Machinery and Supplies | IWM signs Australian distribution deal
Industrial Washing Machines Limited (IWM), one of the UK’s leading designers and manufacturers of industrial washing and sanitising equipment, has signed a major distribution deal with Global Machinery and Supplies, a highly regarded and successful specialist supplier of equipment to the food processing industries in Australia and New Zealand.
Under the terms of the deal, Global Machinery and Supplies, which has its headquarters in Sydney, New South Wales, is appointed as the exclusive distributor for all IWM products in Australia and New Zealand. Global Machinery and Supplies will not only handle promotion and sales of these products throughout the region, but will also provide service and technical support for users, including the supply of consumables and spare parts.
“With their enormous food industries, Australia and New Zealand are particularly important markets for us,” said Carl Hollier, Managing Director of IWM, “and they are crucial to the success of our on-going worldwide export drive. We are, therefore, delighted to be working with Global Machinery and Supplies, a company that is well-known and highly regarded in antipodean markets.”
“In fact, IWM has already had some success in Australia, with several machines sold to Western Australia in 2013, and orders for two new SAN100e sanitisers already received in 2014. With the support of Global Machinery and Supplies however, we are certain that we will quickly achieve much greater penetration of the huge food and beverage manufacturing market, which in Australia accounted for 21.6% of the country’s manufacturing value added in 2012-13.”
“IWM machines are innovative, efficient, built to last and they offer excellent value for money,” said Mike Jackson, Managing Director of Global Machinery and Supplies, “which are exactly the qualities our customers want. We are, therefore, confident that the IWM equipment will be well received in our markets, and we’re looking forward to a long and mutually profitable relationship between our two companies.”
