Cardinal have been working with and supplying shop equipment to Kmart for over four years now so it was good news all round when Kmart announced last week that Cardinal were successful in their latest equipment tender. Kmart have asked Cardinal to supply loose floor equipment and perimeter wall equipment for the next programme of store refits which begins in July of this year. The programme, as usual, is fairly intense and covers 20-25 stores over a twelve month period.
The latest tender was the result of Kmart’s supply chain development which introduced new and added competition. Following a series of value engineering and revisiting our own supply chain Cardinal can be proud of their achievements. Scoring highly in quality and price our first class history of delivering on time and creative support cemented an already strong relationship with one of Australia’s largest retailers. Wesfarmers, owners of Kmart have recently announced net profits of $1.37 b for the half year, an increase of 8.3% whilst Kmart’s earnings grew by 11% to £289m
