Norstate’s move to Gar­butt

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - CHRISTIE AN­DER­SON

NORSTATE has re­lo­cated to a large ware­house in Gar­butt af­ter tak­ing ad­van­tage of Townsville’s af­ford­able com­mer­cial prop­erty mar­ket to be­come owner oc­cu­piers.

The busi­ness, which sells pro­mo­tional prod­ucts and au­to­mo­tive parts, is now op­er­at­ing out of a 532sq m ware­house in Pilk­ing­ton St af­ter pur­chas­ing the prop­erty last year for about $ 620,000.

Hus­band and wife team War­ren and Lau­ren Gross have done ex­ten­sive work to the premises.

Mr Gross said Gar­butt was the per­fect base for their busi­ness. “It was in the cen­tre of an in­dus­trial hub where all the au­to­mo­tive garages are so we’re eas­ier to ac­cess,” he said.

Mr Gross said the busi­ness was made up of two sep­a­rate parts, one be­ing pro­mo­tional prod­ucts and the other au­to­mo­tive parts.

“We pro­vide pro­mo­tional so­lu­tions to any sized busi­ness from coun­cil to a one­man shop,” he said.

“From mugs to caps to shirts and we cover from Mackay to Cairns and out to Mount Isa.

“We also sup­ply re­tail and trade to all me­chan­i­cal, panel, and auto elec­tri­cal shops and we are one of the few places in Townsville that carry all the hard- to- get au­to­mo­tive parts.”

The ware­house is lo­cated on a prime cor­ner site and was set up as two sep­a­rate units which have now been combined.

The ware­house is set on 1004sq m of land with plenty of park­ing avail­able.

It was the first time the prop­erty had been on the mar­ket since 1993 be­fore it was snapped up by Mr Gross.

Col­liers In­ter­na­tional sell­ing agent Shaun McLaren said owner oc­cu­piers were fre­quently snap­ping up prop­er­ties in Townsville with mort­gage re­pay­ments of­ten the same price as pay­ing rent.
