Just weeks after winning the Building Product category at the 2017 Sustainability Awards, WINYA has opened a 200sqm showroom in the centre of Canberra.
According to director Greg Welsh, the significance of this, WINYAs second showroom, is that “for the first time, all of our cutting-edge furniture is on display. Never have we had all of our lines on the one display floor.”
The Canberra store also has other significance, says Welsh.
“Most of the support for Indigenous procurement comes from the federal government.”
“It’s a way that we connect with the Canberra decision makers,” he says.
Added to that, Welsh says that wining the Building Product Category at the 2017 Sustainability Awards last month “was a huge help to his company.”
“We are a small company that punches well above its weight, and winning a category in things like your Sustainability Awards gets us noticed by our customers,” he says.
