Opens two new warehouses.
Miele has strengthened its presence in Australia opening two new warehouses in Sydney and Brisbane.
The 17,000 square metre Sydney site, located at Eastern Creek (pictured), which opens officially on March 7, is the largest centre outside its German headquarters. It features a state-of-the-art office, technical workshop, warehouse operational area and large clearance centre, to allow for the relocation and upgrade of Miele’s Rosehill warehouse, which the company had outgrown.
It follows the opening of a new 7,000 square metre Brisbane warehouse at Export Park earlier this year. The Brisbane purpose-built warehouse allowed for the consolidation of a number of Miele locations and services under one roof.
Both warehouses mark continued growth for the established appliance brand, which is sold in more than 400 retail outlets across Australian and New Zealand, with a fleet of 50 delivery vehicles, transporting more than 10,000 premium kitchen and laundry appliances to customers.
Miele head of logistics for Australia and New Zealand, Mark Skrzypiec, said steps have been taken to ensure the new warehouses continue to improve customer service and operations.
“We’ve been given a great opportunity to expand our warehouses, refine their process and enhance our set up internally. This will allow us to continue to build on our brand promise ‘Immer Besser’ and move closer towards ensuring faster delivery times for customers in metro areas,” he said.
Miele has leased its Sydney warehouse from Australian property developer, Mirvac, who it worked closely with to enhance the overall layout and design, ensuring continual improvement to operations and customer service.
Both warehouses will be servicing the general public via their technical workshop and clearance centre.
