Expanding air conditioning giant chills out in Tingalpa

by admin | 1st December 2010

Temperzone Australia P/L, a Sydney based air conditioning specialist with nationwide outlets, has leased a new and larger premises at 28 Millenium Place in the Brisbane suburb of Tingalpa and will be paying $127,190 pa on terms of 5+5 years.  It is moving from Morningside and other locales in order to concentrate its activities in one space.

The modern, tilt panel office and warehouse offers 1,130m2 of stock holding capacity,is accessed via dual container height roller doors, has ample car parking and generous truck turning

According to the firm’s Queensland State Manager, Shane McBride, this investment is intended   to greatly improve customer response time. Just like our Melbourne counterpart, imported product from New Zealand, Malaysia and Japan now comes straight to the State branch, cutting time and possible damage to stock-in-transit. Holding stock of units up to 60kW certainly gives us an edge as the notion of a supplier holding stock of this capacity away from their manufacturing base is almost unheard of.

McBride adds that having such a large amount of stock and products on hand is great for service companies who need to get HVAC plant operational as soon as possible. They now have the option to replace units on a same day basis, rather than having to wait up to 48 hours for a part from some manufacturers. On smaller units, it is often more economical to replace the outdoor unit than the compressor, so were in the perfect position to win new business.

He goes on to note  that improved stock availability is also important where commercial tenancy fitouts are concerned. In many cases, air conditioning upgrades need to be completed after hours in time for a new tenant’s planned move-in date. Contractors now know they can order units on a same-day delivery basis in many cases.

This investment  parallels the firm’s relocations into similarly sized premises in New South Wales and Victoria.

The transaction was handled by King & Co’s David Knox, who says Òthe new tenant wanted to stay in an area like Morningside, with its good access to the major arterials as well as the Port, and found Tingalpa fit the bill.
