Sunshine Mitre 10’s new Distribution Centre secures supplies for building and trade customers

Sunshine Mitre 10 has expanded their Distribution network to help ensure builders and tradies have access to all the materials they need.

The new purpose-built Distribution Centre at Kunda Park was secured in 2021 and officially opened this year.

Sunshine Mitre 10 General Manager Neil Hutchins said the new facilities are a specific response to industry-wide supply chain challenges that have been experienced since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“It is no secret that there has been a significant shortage of building materials and delays in the supply of materials to Australia, so we wanted to do all we could to give our building and trade customers some security around this,” Mr Hutchins said.

Sunshine Mitre 10 invests in lifesaving defibrillators for every store

WITH 18 stores throughout Queensland, Sunshine Mitre 10, one of the largest independently operated and owned hardware suppliers in Queensland, have invested in lifesaving defibrillators for all its stores.

Sunshine Mitre 10 general manager Neil Hutchins said the defibrillators were an investment in emergency health care not just for their staff, but also for the communities in which they operate.

“We have over 400 staff across our locations, and we take our duty of care very seriously so we have first aid officers at each location, and now we also have defibrillators which can help save lives for anyone experiencing a sudden cardiac arrest,” Mr Hutchins said.

“But it’s not only that, many of our stores are in regional and remote locations so by having a defibrillator on-site, it also makes these lifesaving devices more accessible to the local communities.

“And while it’s a very big investment, if we can save just one life, it will be money very well spent.”
