Almost home and hosed with shed development
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.”
