Statewide Appliances Spares has been recognised in the outstanding growth category for the Telstra Best of Business Awards and chosen as a South Australian state finalist.

The Telstra Best of Business Awards celebrates small and medium businesses making a positive impact within their industry and inspiring the next generation through their ingenuity and resilience. The seven award categories recognise different measures of business excellence across Australia. Over 20,000 businesses were nominated, with 246 finalists announced after a rigorous three-stage judging process.

The outstanding growth category recognises businesses for achieving significant growth and their contribution towards building a more resilient Australian economy.

Statewide Appliances Spares has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 1985, initially supplying whitegood spare parts to the trade industry, to now being Australia’s biggest and most trusted spare parts distributor, offering the country’s largest range of appliance spare parts.

“This is a fantastic achievement of which we are very proud. In many ways it is acknowledgement of the passion and commitment of our entire team, that works together to provide an exceptional customer service experience,” Statewide Appliances Spares CEO, David Stretton said.

“Statewide Appliance Spares’ phenomenal growth over the past two to three years is a result of astute business strategies and significant investment in our people, systems and resources,” chairman, Paul Haysman added.

Over the last couple of years, Statewide Appliance Spares has established strong e-commerce capabilities and amplified online sales with a new website, developed the most comprehensive appliance spare parts database, adopted technological advancements in automation to improve systems and processes, and invested in its people through upskilling staff, job creation and new employment pathways.

“By building strong relationships with leading manufacturing brands, we have grown our product range, offering spare parts for almost all brands and appliances found in Australian homes. Both our retail and trade customers know that they can rely on Statewide to easily help them find the spare part they need,” Stretton added.

State winners of the 2023 Telstra Best of Business Awards will be announced on 7 February during a State Gala Dinner at Adelaide Oval. The winner from each state and territory will move onto the National Awards Ceremony in March 2023.
