Warehouse manager - Melbourne
BPW began operating in 1986 out of the family garage (under the name of Incomex Trading) with big intentions to become a significant player in the Australian wholesale distribution of bicycle parts and accessories.
This small family business worked hard to gain a niche and did by buying products no other wholesalers wished to purchase, odd sizes, low volume product and supporting these products with top selling "necessities". Incomex Trading established its niche and worked diligently, slowly growing and prospering.
In 2006 Incomex Trading was sold as the founder wished to retire. Under new ownership the name was changed to Bicycle Parts Wholesale (BPW). Soon after, the new owners, with a strong belief in the future of the Cycling Industry, made the decision to move to a larger premises, dramatically increase the ranges and depth of product as part of a vision to become a more important supply partner with the Independent Bicycle Stores sector.
A couple of years past with strong progress when a pivotal moment occurred. The owners of Bicycle Solutions (a specialist bicycle wheel building company and distributor of Gomier tricycles) approached BPW with the proposal that BPW buy their Company as it would be an extremely good fit. After a year of negotiations, the deal was done and BPW became more than a P & A distributor. This decision was also viewed within the industry as a clear signal of an intention to expand and the following years saw BPW approached by other owners to buy their Companies which subsequently occurred.
Through these years BPW transformed into a modern professional wholesaler with a comprehensive range of products including exclusive Brand distribution, a highly respected hardcopy catalogue, and our third generation state of the art B2B website.
We are proud to be one of few wholesalers with warehouse facilities located in Melbourne and Brisbane increasing our ability to deliver efficiently to the Independent Bicycle Shops sector throughout Australia.
Orders are dispatched the same day or the next working day. Our extensive network of carrier companies ensure orders can be delivered Australia wide within 24 to 72 hours in most states.
What we are most proud of, without any doubt, is the wonderful, caring, knowledgeable staff we have working at BPW. We still have the original 1 staff from Incomex Trading, 2 staff from Bike Solutions, 1 staff from Holstar, 1 staff from Bicycle Wholesalers, plus all of the original staff employed in the first years of BPW. To add to this solid base, all our more recent additions to our staff have increased our levels of knowledge, skill and ability to satisfy our customer's requirements.
We are now looking for a quality individual to join our team to manage our warehouse in Dandenong.
