A lot has happened in the construction industry this year. We had triumph’s and tragedies, figures have shown positivity in a domestic building market while apartment building should be on the decline come 2017. Industry firsts like the ‘Onekey’ system from Milwaukee and the Flexvolt system from DeWalt have made some serious headway and are continuing to shape the industry for what we believe to be the better. Electric Power Tools will always have their place but cordless makes life on the job a hell of a lot easier and more efficient and the cordless segment will only continue to grow in the coming years.
Globally the selling of Master’s has led to big things, Bunning’s have brought UK chain ‘Homebase’ and plan on spending well over $1.5B on the purchase as well as the re-brand. America named a new president in Donald Trump and everybody was able to enjoy the RIO Olympics.
The biggest thing for us this year was the relocation of our old Thomastown branch to the new Somerton location. It’s our ‘big blue box’ with plenty of stock ready to roll out to all of you. We’ve also completely re-created our website www.ableairpt.com.au and will be looking to re-vamp our three other locations in the new year.
A big year has come and another is yet to unfold…As we sit and reflect on another year that has flown by we’d like to wish everyone who is apart of the Able Air & Power Tools family a huge Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
From all of us at Able Air & Power Tools
