Intersales expands Wagga operations

A spike in demand has seen Intersales expand its operations in Wagga Wagga

Intersales added to its East Wagga premises recently with a new machinery workshop.

Intersales managing director Peter Heinrich officially opened the modern 1,200 square metre workshop facility, which has been custom designed, and purpose built to cater to Intersales’ needs.

Each work bay is large enough to accommodate a large Steiger tractor or flagship size Case IH header on duals, or a combination of smaller machines.

Intersales operates Case IH dealerships in Temora, Wagga Wagga, Griffith and Wodonga, and offers sales of new and used machinery as well as comprehensive service and spare parts.

Company director and Wagga Wagga branch manager Adam Blachut says the rate of growth has exceeded company expectations.

"When we opened Intersales Wagga Wagga we knew that we would require additional workshop space. However, we were surprised at how quickly we outgrew the existing facility," he says.

"However, as you might imagine it has been more of a challenge than it otherwise might have been to actually build such a dedicated construction.

"I’d like to thank my team for working in conditions that were less than ideal while we waited for the new facilities to be completed.

"This has been a very challenging time to build with various COVID-19-related delays and building materials in short supply.

"We had an excellent builder, David Hurst Constructions, who was able to navigate these challenges and provide us with an excellent result in a very short timeframe.

"Wagga Wagga City Council is very keen to support business growth and development and they have been very supportive of our initiatives and provided guidance and assistance when needed."

In addition to the new workshop, Intersales’ previous workshop facility will be converted into a 500sqm parts storage warehouse, providing an additional advantage for the company.

"Increasing the parts inventory stored in our Wagga Wagga branch is strategic for us, as Wagga Wagga is centrally located to Intersales dealerships and provides fast response times when customer machines require parts and service," Blachut says.

"In planning every aspect of our new facilities, our sole focus has been on how we increase employee comfort and safety, so we can best support our customers’ needs and increase the level of service that we provide to them."

Intersales invited key Case IH staff to the official opening on March 17, including Australia/New Zealand general manager Pete McCann, head of network development Hector McInnes, national sales co-ordinator Gerard Prior and other brand representatives and Intersales staff.
