Business growth in safety sector
WITH safety being one of the fastest growing sectors of its business, Corporate Express continues to update its extensive range of products available to suit this market.
Regional manager Geoff Boneham said Corporate Express understood it had a commitment to corporate social responsibly and to providing a safe workplace for employees and customers.
“Our vision is to provide socially responsible solutions for our customers and our people through the products we source and the way we choose to operate, to protect our planet and care for our community,” he said.
Corporate Express stocks a broad range of safety products including clothing, ear, eye and head protection, gloves, hand sanitisers, signage, spill kits and respirators.
The business has been operating in Rockhampton since 1977, relocating to its present location in Alma Street in 2006, with all staff aware of the needs of the local community.
Staff participate in Corporate Express' own learning and development program to ensure they are better equipped to understand and meet the needs of its customers in areas such as management reporting, reducing inventory holdings, product rationalisation, supply chain management and managing costs.
“Our strategy is to enable our customers to outsource all the products and services they need for their businesses, by helping simplify the procurement process and reducing the costs of doing business.
“Our internet ordering system is one of the most transacted business-to-business ordering sites in Australia, with simple navigation that makes finding products faster, getting the job done with less clicks, while customers are also able to track their order in real time and view invoices online,” Geoff said.
Safety and quality customer service isn't the only commitment of Corporate Express.
“By raising environmental awareness, offering alternative products and developing programs to reduce waste, we aim to incorporate environmentally responsible activities into our daily lives.
“As part of our environmental focus, we encourage the selection of environmentally sensitive products and we have even developed the Earth Saver logo to assist our customers in identifying products where our suppliers have signed Corporate Express's Ethical Sourcing Policy and have met strict criteria.”
