Beaumont Tiles has opened a 13,000 sqm tile distribution centre at Rochedale in Brisbane’s south.

Beaumont has a 19-year lease on the Goodman’s Rochedale Motorway Estate (1 Brickworks Place), an industrial precinct. The facility is 60 percent larger than Beaumont's sites at Archerfield. The new facilities allow the retailer to run 16 hours a day.

The state-of-the-art 13,287 sqm head office and warehouse employs 75 people and will service Beaumont’s network of 28 stores in Queensland and stores and customers in northern NSW, said a media release.

The Rochdale opening is part of a $20 million dollar investment into Queensland by Beaumont. The retailer also recently launched its new 730 sqm design studio in Montpelier Road, Fortitude Valley.

Beaumont Tiles managing director Bob Beaumont said the company had increased its national footprint by 25 percent in Queensland in the last five years and he expected turnover to increase to $100 million a year from $60 million in five years.

“We’ve designed the facility to suit our unique needs for stock holding and to vastly improve our heavy-vehicle and customer traffic management. This means customers can get what they want, when they want it and we can maintain market leading price points,” Beaumont said.

The Rochedale centre takes Beaumont's national distribution centre holdings to 50,000 sqm across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide with the same footprint again in its 106-store network.
