Australian-owned agribusiness AWN today announced the latest expansion of its livestock and property agency, confirming the establishment of four new branch and service locations.
AWN now offers livestock services across Tasmania as it welcomes a team of experienced stockmen to the business, who will work alongside the AWN wool specialists in supporting clients.
In Victoria’s Wimmera district, the existing AWN wool site at Horsham has been expanded to include livestock and property services. A new AWN branch has been established in nearby Stawell, and livestock services will also operate out of Edenhope. The Horsham Regional Livestock Exchange will be the primary yard for AWN sales in the Wimmera district, with special Spring sales to be conducted in Edenhope.
AWN Chief Operating Officer, Rick Maybury said that this latest expansion of livestock and property services is the perfect complement to AWN’s existing wool business in these areas.
“AWN is extremely pleased to now be offering dedicated livestock and property services to clients across Tasmania and the Wimmera district of Victoria. We have a strong track record of delivering innovative marketing solutions and great results for our wool clients in these areas and we are looking forward to being able to offer the same level of service to our clients through our livestock and property agency.
“We have a number of experienced and client-focused livestock team members who have already joined us at our new sites, with more to follow in the coming weeks as they are released from their employment restraints.”
AWN, formerly known as Australian Wool Network, is an Australian-owned rural services business.
Established in 1999, AWN quickly grew to become the country’s largest independent wool broker and began offering livestock services in 2003.
This is the latest in a series of expansion activities for the rapidly growing Australian business, which in the last twelve months has acquired businesses in Shepparton Victoria and Parkes NSW, as well as established greenfield sites in Wangaratta in Victoria, and numerous locations across Western Australia.
