If you live in regional and a rural area I am sure this will interest you!
I live in Tasmania and on my property i run about 30 cattle. It was difficult to get good animal handling equipment for my cattle and impossible to get it at a reasonable price. You know the equipment I am talking about like Cattle Panels, Crushes, and Ramps etc. It’s only steel!!!
About 7 years ago I set up a steel factory in China during the temporary fencing boom. This came about when the workplace law came out in Australia that all building sites must have temporary fencing around it. With this in mind I took off to China, with my partner Cameron we set up a small factory to make temporary fencing. That leap of faith worked and the business took off, today we have branded our products under the name of Brazzen and we have over 100 workers in our factory in China producing our fencing and rural products and they are shipped all over the world.
Just over a year ago I decided to get my factory to make all the farming equipment and send a couple of containers to my property here in Southern Tasmania. I was going to give the rural guys in my area a run for their money as they have been charging too much for years.
The first thing I did after receiving my first two containers was book myself in the local field day. Gee, was that the right move! I think just from that show I would have got orders right then on the spot for over $60,000 and the knock on from it would have been another $100,000 in after sales. Since then I have not looked back. In the last year I have bought about 2 containers a month. I call the local business Tas Rural Supplies.
I don’t have high overheads. I operate from my own land and it is not even close to any main road. My office is a container and I store all my smaller parts in another container. Farmers are happy to come from everywhere to get good value for their money.
Just recently I have set up another outlet in Mansfield Victoria (Brazzen Mansfield). It has just opened and we will be doing a show in Seymour to help kick it off.
Recently I thought the only way to expand Brazzen is to get more guys who want to do what I do in their area. Just recently we have Peter from Dural Sydney just order 2 containers to open Brazzen Dural. He rented a small bit of land from a mate in Dural and he is ready to set up his own container office and sell rural products in Dural.
If you are living in a rural area and want something exciting to do and give the local rural guys a run for their money please give us a call. Come to China and see our factory if you like. We will point you in the right direction what to order how to advertise and how to price your products in your market.
Never listen to those who say it can’t be done cause LOOK WHO IS LAUGHING NOW!
