Increased revenue percentage by 18% overall with a 12% increase in the local market and 123% increase in exports
Rapid but turbulent beginnings
Chris Galea bought Polyshine Finishing in 2008. At time, it was run down and in desperate need of direction.
Chris put everything on the line to turn this business around, from being away for weeks and months from his wife and two young boys to spending his last $1000 on a flight to Singapore in 2010. It was this moment of desperation that saw him pull out the phone book in his hotel room and start making business calls.
By the end of the day, Chris had completed several meetings with people, met future clients and found the perfect team members to run a satellite office.
With focus and determination, business started to take off, however, there was a side-effect – the company was growing fast and it was placing extreme stress on its operations and everyone involved. Chris firmly believed in the business and its product so he pushed through. But it has not been an easy ride.
Several years on, Chris and his team have now streamlined their manufacturing facility, enabling them to double their production capabilities.
Polyshine Finishing has also built relationships with their suppliers, sharing their vision with them and ensuring that they are 100% committed to be involved.
Making big decisions
Since becoming a client of Business Benchmark Group, income and revenue for Polyshine Finishing has increased by over 18% with a 12% increase in the local market and 123% increase with the export market.
With our help, they made a decision to export and break into other markets that were growing and thriving. This has meant that the company is now able to work on projects that will double and triple their revenue growth over the coming years.
Being able to now define both high volume low margin markets that work in tandem with low volume high margin markets has meant that Polyshine Finishing has been able to commence operating two shifts at their Sydney plant from January 2016.
