LO­CAL cit­rus grow­ers are very happy with the new pack­ag­ing ser­vices of­fered by Lind­say Ru­ral.

Iron­bark Cit­rus op­er­a­tions man­ager Jo­han Si­mon said Lind­say Ru­ral now sup­plied all the ma­te­ri­als used in their pack­ing shed.

“The qual­ity is really good and I find the ser­vices ex­cep­tional,” Mr Si­mon said.

“We’ve been cus­tomers for quite a long time, with the card­board and that’s been a long­stand­ing re­la­tion­ship.

“In more re­cent times, we’ve picked up the other side of the busi­ness, with the tapes and the glues and the things like that.

“We’re ex­tremely happy with it all.”

Lind­say Ru­ral Mun­dub­bera sales rep­re­sen­ta­tive Gra­ham Mered­ith said the com­pany was a one-stop shop for pack­ag­ing needs.

“We’ve got buck­les, strap­ping, all your tapes, ma­chine tapes, pal­let tapes, sticky tapes and net wrap­ping,” Mr Mered­ith said. “We’re lo­cal and we’ve got it all here, cus­tomers don’t have to or­der it in.

“One phone call and it’s there, that’s it.”

Mr Si­mon said the one-stop shop nature of the ser­vice pro­vided saves him time and money.

“For an op­er­a­tions man­ager it saves me deal­ing with four or five com­pa­nies, so it is eas­ier,” he said.

“It’s time sav­ing and money sav­ing too.

“The pur­chas­ing power of Lind­say’s is quite a bit larger than Iron­bark on its own.

“Just the buy­ing power of their group makes it ad­van­ta­geous to us.”

Mr Si­mon said he would rec­om­mend pack­ag­ing ser­vices Lind­say Ru­ral pro­vided to other com­pa­nies.

“I have done so al­ready ac­tu­ally,” he said.
