Third time’s a charm for leading Sydney warehouse storage equipment supplier Storage Ideas, which has been named Colby Storage Solutions’ Distributor of the Year 2019.

Storage Ideas took the top gong for its successes in the industry, including the company’s work on installing a Colby Storage Solution for Intertrading Australia.

Storage Ideas installed double deep racking with special pallet guides at Intertrading Australia’s 27,000 square metre distribution facility, which distributes a vast range of Australian products, including Barista Bros’ signature flavoured milks.

The win takes Storage Ideas’ total tally of Colby Storage Solutions awards to three.

“We are incredibly thankful to receive this award and to be recognised as a leader in the supply of storage equipment for the third time,” says Storage Ideas principal Robert Burke.

“Our team has an ongoing commitment to providing great service and integrity to our customers and it’s great to see this highlighted amongst our industry peers.”

Colby Storage Solutions works to combine the flexibility of an Australian network of independent distributors with the resources of global materials handling leader Dematic.

Dematic maintains its commitment to manufacturing Colby storage equipment locally, to the highest possible standards, at a competitive price.

“Storage Ideas’ fantastic customer service standards have made for reliable and transparent support for their clients,” says Tony Woodlock, Colby Storage Solutions director at Dematic.

“Robert and the team at Storage Ideas have shown an exceptional level of commitment in delivering high-quality storage systems, which they have done for many years, and we congratulate them for their efforts.”
