Austube Open in QLD

Austube are pleased to announce that as of the 1stSeptember 2018 we will be representing our own interests in the Queensland market with a dedicated Austube branch and staff. Previously Austube product was sold through Forlite as our QLD Agent and we would like to take this opportunity to thank Forlite for all their hard work supporting and promoting the Austube brand over the recent years. 

In order to support this initiative Adam Gleeson has been appointed to represent the Austube brand with a brief to grow the business into the leading extrusion partner for all Queenslanders. Adam has a strong history in providing project solutions for his clients and is currently working in the Gerard Lighting business. Adam will continue his role in Gerard Lighting but will also be employed by Austube to develop our brand in this hugely important market. 

Adam states, “I am very excited to add the Austube brand to my portfolio and to be working directly for the Austube business when it comes to promoting and supporting extrusion projects in the Queensland market. Austube is a great Australian made brand and is a business and has the ability to touch all customer groups in the pursuit of providing high quality extrusion solutions. Local representation directly from the supplier is highly regarded by Queenslanders and Austube will now be able to provide this service.”

Martin Kaye, the Executive General Manager explains the reasoning and timing of this appointment. “The QLD market is a large growth region for Austube where in the recent years our path to market has been through an agency model. With Austube now in a very strong position, the time has come to invest directly into this important area enabling the Queensland client base to have direct communication with the manufacturer, increasing our service levels and shortening response times.”

Martin continues, “Adam’s focus will be on creating partnerships with our clients and offering complete end to end project management solutions from the design process all the way through to after sales support. Our multiple ranges from our soon to be launched Greenstar II range and Skyline range through to our best in class custom lighting capabilities will serve well in a market that appreciates engineering prowess and Australian design and manufactured products. Our goal is to be the partner of choice in QLD when it comes to all things extrusion”

We at Austube hope the people of Queensland support this initiative and work closely with Adam on all your extrusion projects. To contact Adam please see below
