| ||Merredin office a Landmark for AWB|| ||
The first integrated, co-branded AWB-Landmark store in Western Australia was officially opened today at Merredin.
AWB Chairman Brendan Stewart opened the new branch during celebrations attended by farmers from Merredin and surrounding districts.
Mr Stewart said the establishment of the Merredin AWB-Landmark office was a key milestone in the integration process.
“The establishment of AWB and Landmark under the one roof in Merredin will provide local farmers with a convenient location to source a wide range of products and services, from merchandise and key farm inputs to marketing and risk management advice and finance,” Mr Stewart said.
“It’s a fantastic new store and I am sure farmers will appreciate the layout and the products we have on offer,” Mr Stewart said.
Mr Stewart said AWB grain specialists would be housed in the building, and growers could rest assured that the company’s focus on grain would not diminish.
“Our commitment to maximising Australian farmers’ wheat income through the Single Desk is as strong as ever, and all growers will continue to have access to their local AWB representatives,” Mr Stewart said
“AWB will maintain its unique branding, and our regional grain specialists will continue to provide the same service – they are still available to meet growers on farm and have separate work areas under in the Landmark building,” Mr Stewart said.
As part of the integration process, AWB will look at opportunities to collocate other regional AWB-Landmark offices in the future, to deliver improved efficiencies to growers. A priority in the integration is to retain the strong brand of both AWB and Landmark through regional Australia.
