SYDNEY: In a sign of the economic times, Pioneer Electronics has announced today that it will make some organisational changes to streamline its “local business to improve operational efficiencies”.

The statement released today said:

“Over the coming months, Pioneer will be centralising all logistics at its Victorian distribution centre based in suburban Braeside. This will provide a more focused approach to stock management and supply.

“Sales functions will be retained in all states. However, in line with other businesses in the electronics industry, Pioneer will also be outsourcing its after-sales service.

“The move will see Pioneer’s Victorian-based service facility retain a team of specialist technicians, who will provide support to our extensive nation-wide service agency network of over 120 agents, as well as servicing selected specialised products.”

Pioneer service agents can be located on Pioneer’s website,

Pioneer also said that it remains committed to the Australian market with a company history spanning over 40 years.
