SI Retail’s handy man

SI Retail's handy man

SI Retail is a family-owned business and just like a family we support each other. For our birthdays, we have fun morning teas with cakes and the iconic but embarrassing birthday song. But family is not only here for special occasions; we support each other and work as a team every day.

For us employees, it means great workplace and results. For you client, it means excellent customer service and a sale team who understands your needs and is able to meet your requirements.

We would like you to meet Ernie Artango, 16 years with SI Retail. Ernie works in the warehouse and he is in charge of quality control, making sure that you receive the right product and in perfect conditions. He is also the warehouse handy man, getting all kind of jobs done. Ernie likes working at SI Retail because it is never boring and the work culture is great "At the warehouse, we are always busy but people are supportive and open so when there is a problem we work together to solve it."  Ernie

He describes himself as a full time family man - with 4 girls aged 16 to 20 years old, you can understand why! He is a quiet person but once on the dance floor, he is an unexpectedly good dancer, bogging away on Stevie Wonder, you would be surprised.

Another thing you may not know about Ernie is that he was a professional fighter - 23 Fights, 17 Wins, 3 Losses and 1 Draw - 138 Amateur career fights - 117 Wins. He ranked #1 in the International Boxing Federation and #3 in the World Boxing Council in 1999. Impressive aye, but no worries, he is retired now.
