Impressed by the quality and durability provided by Excel Lockers, Reddam House School in Sydney enlisted the company’s services once again to cater to student growth, building on a business relationship that extends almost a decade.
Reddam House is a co-educational school that caters to students from Kindergarten to Year 12. It was opened in 2001, starting with just 160 students. Today its student base has grown to more than 800, across its two campuses in Woollahra (Primary and Middle years) and North Bondi (Years 10 to 12).
Excel Lockers undertook the initial locker installation at the North Bondi campus. With growing student enrolments, the school saw the need to install additional lockers. “The most recent time we used Excel Lockers, it was because our student numbers have expanded. We wanted all of our lockers to match so we went with the same company we have previously used,” says Kate Hall from Reddam House’s North Bondi campus.
Excel Lockers was able to customise its product in order to match existing lockers, however with a few additional benefits. “As the lockers are situated on a covered veranda, we needed to make sure they couldn’t be impacted by weather. With this installation, we developed an enhanced base system with a waterproof element and closed off the bottom of the lockers to make them look neater,” explains John Lupton, National Sales Manager at Excel Lockers.
Excel Lockers was established by Tony Downes in 2006, bringing extensive industry experience to his new venture. Based in Brisbane, the business specialises in manufacturing and installing lockers and supplies its products and services nationwide.
The locker ranges are manufactured using the latest in computer-controlled machinery to ensure optimum strength and durability. Their robust construction is coupled with heavy-duty recessed padlock fittings and heavy-duty hinges, to ensure they can handle anything students can throw their way.
Together with supplying a high quality product, Excel Lockers prides itself on its high levels of customer service, providing tailored solutions to meet each school’s individual requirements. Mr Lupton says that it’s all about delivering exactly what schools want, not just what’s on the order form. For new builds, the business is involved in projects early on, liaising with architects to determine how it can build its lockers into what the school is trying to achieve.
“I’ve found Excel Lockers very easy to work with. They are easy to get in touch with and deliver what they promise,” says Ms Hall. “All-round, Excel Lockers has been great.”
