With over 400 stores in Australia, Repco requires a reliable ongoing supply of general point-of-sale products to fulfil their ‘new and refurbish’ program.
Always one step ahead
By anticipating and forecasting Repco’s needs, we are able to fulfil their requirements for fixtures such as shelving and retail displays. We also hold stock to ensure Repco always has a reliable supply of these products available.
The support we give Repco with forecasting and stock holdings has allowed our relationship to grow for over 10 years.
“Repco has been purchasing from SI Retail for over 12 years now and they have consistently provided us with quality point of sale products. We can always rely on SI Retail to have stock available with quick turnaround time to our stores.
Sometimes our store programs can leave us with very short notice to roll out a store. However, we can always count on the team at SI Retail to support us and ensure stock is sent out to stores as soon as possible. We will continue to work with the SI Retail team and we hope to continue to grow our relationship with them for many years to come.”

SI Retail developed the SI Direct business model to provide customised solutions for all your shopfitting requirements from concept through to delivery at the lowest overall cost while ensuring high quality.
Our own office and bond warehouse in China
This is possible because we have established our own office and bond warehouse in China to provide solutions in sourcing, manufacturing and shipping. This ensures the supply chain is fully controlled - from the start of your project through to its completion.
SI Direct eliminated the middleman
SI Direct eliminates the middleman so costs are reduced and quality and risk is better controlled. The main goal of SI Direct is to reduce costs and achieve the most efficient lead times and quality outcomes for your project. SI Direct drives a selection of processes that eliminates waste and allows the most direct route for project management, manufacturing and distribution designed specifically for each business partner.
Communication and information management
In China, we have a bilingual team of designers, quality controllers, project coordinators, product buyers and a logistic team. The right blend of Australian and Chinese management gives us the unique ability to completely understand your requirements and correctly convey them throughout the manufacturing and shipping processes.
Strong relationship with Chinese factories
We have developed strong relationships with several factories so that we can provide endless manufacturing possibilities. We have developed Guanxi with our partner factories. More than just a working relationship, Guanxi is a deeper understanding of each other's needs and wants that goes both way. Guanxi can only be developed through time and trust. Once you have Guanxi with a particular factory your needs and special favours are carried with respect.
How SI Direct works
In Australia, our Business Development team will design a plan that suits your individual needs. Once the project has been collated, it goes to our China Coordination Centre and both teams ensure all information is conveyed correctly. Our China Coordination Centre provides feedback to the Australian team on all checkpoints throughout the process. The project is then sent to our partner factories for manufacturing. We then kit products and label pallets in China according to store requirements and we pack containers for efficient unloading. It then gets bulk shipped direct to stores or to the destination of your choice.

With an office and a bond warehouse in China, providing service in sourcing, manufacturing and shipping, SI DIRECT ensures the supply chain is fully controlled - from start of your project through to its completion.
