Growth can't be fenced in

GRACEMERE is booming and Luke Sinclair is determined to make the most of it.

Luke and his business partner, Jade Wogand, started a fencing company and moved into landscaping supplies just four months ago.

And already the business is expanding again.

Gracemere Fencing and Landscaping has moved to larger premises on the Old Capricorn Hwy and started a new division, Gracemere Bolt and Steel, to supply the local construction industry.

"Gracemere is experiencing very high growth at the moment and we are in the right place at the right time," said Luke.

Gracemere Bolt and Steel was officially launched yesterday.

The business handles bolt and steel sales, supplying a wide variety of items to the building and engineering businesses in the area which are also working flat out to meet the high demand in Gracemere.

Luke and Jade now employ seven staff.

"Originally our business was to supply and install fencing and we have grown to take advantage of the opportunities out here," he said.

The business has moved from a 2000 sq m to one occupying 8000 sq m. The company has a workshop and can cut items to size.

"It's going well," he said but would not be drawn on possible further expansion in the future.
