Beaumont Tiles opens massive distribution centre at Rochedale in Brisbane

Beaumont Tiles has opened one of the largest distribution centres in the southern hemisphere at Rochedale in Brisbane’s south.
The state-of-the-art 13,287sqm. head office and warehouse facility employs 75 people and will service Beaumont’s growing network of 28 stores in Queensland and stores and customers in Northern NSW.
Beaumonts has a 19 year lease on the Goodman’s Rochedale Motorway Estate (1 Brickworks Place). The facility is 60 per cent larger than Beaumonts previous sites at Archerfield. The new facilities allow the retailer to run 16 hours a day.
The Rochdale opening is part of a $20 million dollar investment into Queensland by Beaumonts. This week the retailer also launched its new high-end 730sqm. design studio in Montpelier Road, Fortitude Valley.
Beaumont Tiles Managing Director, Bob Beaumont, said Queensland is a vibrant renovating market with particular growth in South-East Queensland, the western corridor and North Queensland in line with population growth and construction activity to meet the housing demand.
He said the company has increased its national footprint by 25 per cent in Queensland the last five years and expected turnover to increase from $60million a year to $100million in the next five years.
“The opening of Rochedale is a whole new chapter for Beaumonts in Queensland and it demonstrates our deep commitment to the state and to grow with it through employment and infrastructure investment,” Mr Beaumont said.
“We’ve designed the facility to suit our unique needs for stock holding and to vastly improve our heavy-vehicle and customer traffic management. This means customers can get what they want, when they want it and we can maintain market leading price points,” Mr Beaumont said.
The opening of Rochedale takes Beaumonts national distribution centre holdings to 50,000m2 across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide with the same footprint again in its 106 store network.
Goodman’s General Manager Australia, Jason Little said the development demonstrated its continued commitment to securing quality development opportunities in the highly sought after Brisbane market.
“We’ve worked closely with Beaumont Tiles to develop its modern and efficient Queensland head office and warehouse facility at Goodman’s Rochedale Motorway Estate, one of Brisbane’s newest industrial precincts. It’s ideally located with direct access to the Gateway Motorway and Brisbane metropolitan areas, and enables Beaumont Tiles to better service their growing customer base,” he said.
