Since then, Argus Building Products has specialized their services in an effort to better serve the customers who have come to rely upon their marked service, and their four decades of continuous growth has culminated in Argus’ position as Tasmania’s premier distributor of specialized roofing and lighting products, offering brand names and delivery convenience that is without match.
As their business continues to grow and expand, Argus Building Products has built an infrastructure that enables great reach in promoting and distributing their building supplies from Launceston to Hobart and all of Tasmania. From their 4500m2 central warehouse, Argus Building Products distributes and even installs products throughout Tasmania with the professionalism and quality that your projects warrant. For consistency and integrity, Argus Building Products has built their business with these as fundamentals.
Argus Building Products has built this massive warehouse on the outskirts of Launceston for the purpose of expedited delivery and saving cost for the customer. The greater majority (85 per cent) of all freight that comes into Tasmania goes through Devonport and Burnie. Thus, when products enter the island, they may be quickly stored at the Argus Building Products warehouse before being shipped. This avoids double handling and time wasting that mires down so many other product deliveries in Tasmania.
From their Launceston warehouse, Argus Building Products can service Hobart and even the North West Tasmanian market in less than 2 hours.
Their delivery network is supportive and professional, exemplifying strong family values that draw the team together into a tight knit business.
Argus Building Products knows their product, knows how to get it to your work site quickly and genuinely cares about your experience as the customer. Don’t waste time with disconnected and unprofessional building supply services, and go with the best in the industry.
