Alexander Colquhoun & Son is a 5th generation, family owned, Australian company. Founded in 1888 in Granville NSW the business has grown to become a leader in the packaging industry across the country, specialising in bags & sacks. The company has 5 branches Australia wide in Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth, Sydney and Toowoomba. We also have sales representatives in Melbourne and Tasmania as well as sales into the Pacific Islands & Papua New Guinea.
After arriving at our 125th year in November 2013 the company took a decision to rebrand at the same time as celebrating our birthday. Our new logo is reflective of our new modern & efficient approach to the business, but we are still maintaining all of those values that allowed us to reach our 125th birthday. In line with our new branding we have also modified what we stand for in the market. Rather than trying to be all things to all people, we have adopted a sharp focus around bags & sacks which is the part of the business we are best at and the part that our customers told us they valued the most. So our new positioning statement is:
"With 125 years of experience, Colquhoun's is a specialist bag & sack supplier working with primary industry to deliver quality packaging solutions that our customers can reply on and trust".
We intend to use our knowledge and experience to really drive results with our customers in a supportive and collaborative way. We aim to be efficient in our dealings both internally & externally, utilising quality systems and products that are reliable and that work.
All of Colquhoun's branches have achieved certification to the ISO - 9001 standard. The ISO accreditation is something that we do not take lightly and both internal & external audits are conducted regularly to ensure we continually meet the high standards we set for ourselves. Our trading divisions are members of many industry associations including the Australian Seed Federation, The Australian Stockfeed Manufacturers Association and the Australian Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container Association just to name a few.
Colquhoun's branches are staffed by experienced people in the packaging industry. Collectively we have over 250 years of knowledge and experience within the company which allows us to be efficient in our dealings with customers as we have probably seen most problems or issues before, and know the answers on how to fix them. Our people are our point of differentiation between ourselves and our competitors and we strive to ensure that staff are continually learning and upgrading their skills to better support current & prospective customers.
Colquhoun's import products from a variety of suppliers in different countries. This ensures that we are able to source the best possible deal for our customers depending on their requirements. We have suppliers in Thailand, China, Indonesia, India, Singapore, Spain and Korea to name just a few. We continually scour the world looking for innovative products and we constantly collaborate with our suppliers to find out the latest developments in products & techniques which will be of benefit to our customers. Many of the suppliers we deal with would be World Leaders in their respective fields which means that the quality of our products should be second to none.
I'm sure you will see from our products pages that we have a wide range of quality items available and our experienced people are looking forward to taking your inquiry and offering to you our 1st class service.
