This year has marked our 15th in Wagga Wagga NSW, a great milestone in our company history.
We opened in Wagga to keep the multi-national plumbing merchants on their toes, proudly becoming the only independent plumbing supplier in town at that time. The Wagga team, with their old-fashioned approach of hard-work and knowing their customers and product, swiftly grew the store to what it is today. Glenn Jones, regional manager for southern NSW and Victoria, has been with Southern Plumbing Wagga since before it even opened, stocking shelves and painting the store in preparation for its first day of opening.
"One of the biggest challenges for the Wagga store was to convince customers, and even staff, that we were in town to stay, given how long our competitors had been around,” Glenn said. “As the store began working with some of Wagga’s best plumbing and construction companies, our growing customer loyalty confirmed we weren’t going anywhere in a hurry"
Our Wagga store, managed by Jeff Roworth, is an integral part of the Wagga community, with our staff supporting a number of events and charities such as the Wagga fun-run, Ronald McDonald House, Wagga TAFE plumbing apprenticeship awards, Pillar of Strength, the Wagga Fishing Classic and much more.
The future is bright with lots of building activity in the community and surrounding towns. We couldn’t have achieved what we have done without the support of our customers and staff – so a big thanks to you all, and here’s to another 15 big ones in Wagga!
