A shortage of storage space has compelled Woodworkers joinery to pay $1,530,000 for an additional 1,500m2 of warehouse space at 12 Shoebury Street, Rocklea. This site will be in addition to four other warehouses around the southside plus its Moorooka headquarters. King & Co’s Rod Hewitt handled the transaction while the vendor is undisclosed

The  clearspan building  is on 2,322m2 of GI land and accessed via six container height roller doors. It is of metal clad construction, with a brick facade and provides ample parking

Woodworkers is a 100% family owned business formed from the amalgamation of several other timber joineries and retailers including Drakes Joinery (founded in 1928), Yandina Joinery, Beautwood, Sydney’s World of Wood, and the Door Shop on the Gold Coast. It is  QueenslandÕs largest manufacturer of solid timber joinery and employs approximately 100 skilled tradespeople and staff. Showrooms are in Brisbane, Sydney, Southport, Maroochydore as well as elsewhere in NSW, Queensland and West Australia.

Hewitt says the new owner chose this site because of its roof height, ease of access, proximity to major arterials and because it’s nearby the company’s other facilities, adding that  they were lucky to come across this site as properties of this size are difficult to find in this precinct
