Almost home and hosed with shed de­vel­op­ment

Isis Town and Country - - Life -

THE BIG red shed on Old Creek Rd is just months away from the next step in its de­vel­op­ment.

The home of Hose­worx and Childers Trans­port will wel­come another business to the premises, with The Shed Childers just a month from com­ple­tion.

Owner-op­er­a­tor-War­ren Framp­ton has been hard at work for the past few months pre­par­ing the show­room for The Shed.

“We’ve got plenty of stock up here and are al­ready trad­ing for who­ever’s around, but we’ll be ready to be com­pletely open early next year,” Mr Framp­ton said.

Mr Framp­ton’s work at the mo­ment in­cludes filling up the ware­house with parts, in­clud­ing tools and lights, and pre­par­ing a show­room for po­ten­tial cus­tomers.

Mr Framp­ton started out in the sugar in­dus­try and made his move to run­ning Hose­worx about 10 years ago.

He started from noth­ing, and built his suc­cess­ful ven­ture by fo­cussing on what po­ten­tial cus­tomers said.

“It’s pretty sim­ple: the pub­lic tell me what they want, and if you lis­ten and do what they want they’ll come back,” Mr Framp­ton said. “It was a bit of a gam­ble. “We’ve got heaps of stuff: bear­ings, bolts, truck parts – mostly in­dus­trial stuff.

“Once we’re open we’ll hope­fully em­ploy a few more lo­cals so it’s jobs for the town. We’re hav­ing a go and I know what I want to see this be­come.”
