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.

It is very possible! Here at SI Retail we pride ourselves in being able to customise various shopfittings to suit customer requirements. We originally started off with our first product - End-Sign Point of Sale Flags. They have been around since the 70s and still are one of the most effective point of sale advertising solutions. We have worked with many customers in the past to create their fully branded End-Sign Flags. Have a look at our End-Sign Flags to see some custom creations. The product customising doesn't stop at a printed flag! End-Sign Flags can also be âkitted' so that all you have to do is fix the flags to your wall or windows. This is ideal for multiple store roll outs. To find out more about this option call 1800 211 122.

Southern Imperial was established in 1974 and has been specialising in shopfittings, display and signage solutions for Australia and New Zealand ever since. This year marks a milestone in the company's history as we move away from our previous branding moving forward with a fresh new look, name, website and products. Part of our rebranding stemmed from the need to better service retailers in the way we provide shop solutions.
In keeping with our history, we've kept the SI initials but they now take on a whole new meaning. SI stands for ‘Solutions In', hence our name, Solutions in Retail (SI Retail). We believe that ‘Solutions In' encapsulates our company objectives and allows us to organically convey our sub brands. You will see and hear more about our exciting sub-brands very soon but two of these are online right now - SI Shop and SI Direct.
SI Shop was certainly the catalyst initiative of our new direction. Its purpose is to create an easy way for customers to shop for all their retail solutions online. The SI Direct sub brand strives to provide solutions in sourcing and logistics. With the success of these branding expansions watch this space as we introduce more exciting sub brands and initiatives in the coming months.
