Elders to be first to use new wool store at Dubbo
Elders will become one of the first wool marketers to use the brand new AWH wool store at Dubbo from the beginning of March.
The new facility in the central-west of New South Wales, on the outskirts of Dubbo, will benefit wool growers in the region by providing lower freight costs and save time by allowing delivery by road train.
Elders Northern Wool Manager Bruce McLeish said the Elders wool team is looking forward to receiving wool at the new location.
“Wool growers from Dubbo, Bourke, Brewarina, Nyngan, Walgett, Coonamble and the surrounding areas will be able to sell their wool at either Sydney or Melbourne through the new Dubbo store,” Mr McLeish said.
“We’re always looking for ways to help our growers achieve maximum results and a new flat rate fee for the Dubbo service will go a long way to achieving that,” he said.
“What’s more, the new store is backed by AWH’s professionalism, testing and warehousing expertise.”
Bruce also said the move to Dubbo is part of a reinvestment in, and refocussing on, the Company’s wool business.
“We’ve recently employed some fresh new faces to supplement our experienced team,” Bruce said.
“With our national and international connections we’re also able to monitor trends in the global wool market to assist our clients and with flexibility and choice in marketing options growers can choose traditional auctions, private sales or forward contracts.
