Heliocol Solar opens Melbourne Warehouse
February 24, 2014

Heliocol Solar Pty Ltd, the sole importer and distributor of Heliocol solar pool heating systems in Australia, has recently opened a new warehouse in Melbourne - adding to the company's stores in Brisbane, Sydney and Perth, as well as to their dealer network throughout Australia.

Explaining the expansion, Heliocol Solar Australia Managing Director Peter Haddon stated "we felt the time was right to establish an outlet here in Melbourne to better serve the Melbourne and Victorian markets.

"Our new company operation in Epping on the northern side will now complement the existing dealer operation in Beronia managed by Peter Jamieson for more than 10 years."

The new Melbourne complex will be managed by Jim Petrakis who brings many years of sales and customer service experience with him to the position.

Kelly Dancer, Heliocol's factory representative for the Pacific Rim region, was in Melbourne recently for the opening.

Welcoming Petrakis to the Heliocol family, Dancer stated "with a factory-directed warehouse here in Melbourne, we can ensure the needs of this market are easily met.

"Jim Petrakis is keen to talk to all members of the trade."

Heliocol Solar Pty Ltd was established in 1995 as the exclusive importer and distributor of Heliocol solar pool heating systems in Australia. As an established leader in the Australian pool heating industry, Heliocol Solar provides design, analysis and installation expertise for commercial and residential customers nationwide.

Corporate headquarters are located in Brisbane, with branch offices and warehouses in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. Additional distributors are available in other state capitals and major regional areas.
