Local Family-owned business wins State awards
A local family owned business has won two top state awards in the first 12 months of opening at the Point Cook Town Centre.
Mail Boxes Etc (MBE) is part of the worldwide business service centre franchise. Since opening its doors in March 2012, the start up business owned by a long-standing Werribee-based family, has offered unrivaled service in print, graphic design, virtual offices and courier services, to win the franchise group’s prestigious Altitude Award (Outstanding sales growth) and Victoria Franchise of the Year.
“We are the newest store in the franchise and the only one in the West”, said Duncan Vincent, Owner and Franchisee. “With the local business community having no similar service to ours, we grounded our business on a solid foundation of gaining a deep understanding of our customers’ business processes, their visions and goals. With that understanding, we then set about to match our products and solutions to help them achieve their goals”.
MBE Point Cook’s services include a unique private 24-hour access private mailbox service, a corporate quality mailroom, overnight couriers, 24-hour copying and a professional telephone answering service. MBE Point Cook also offers desktop publishing, digital black and white and colour printing plus binding, laminating and finishing services - effectively acting as the ‘back office’ for local businesses.
The unique 24-hour access private mailbox suite is another one of MBE Point Cooks hugely popular services. This service effectively gives users their own Suite address, which they can access 24/7 – including a self service photocopier to assist in emergency situations. The service is very popular for small businesses because it gives them a prestigious Suite address and for overseas companies that need a Point Cook street address and not just a mundane PO Box number. To complement the private mailbox service, MBE Point Cook also provides:
- a mail forwarding service,
- net-based document delivery,
- packing and shipping (local, national & international) through a choice of reputable carriers,
- mail list management & direct mail services,
- a folding/inserting/posting service,
- fax sending and receiving, and
- international bulk mail.
In today’s offices many businesses simply don’t have the time to carry out everyday business processes. MBE Point Cook will take care of these everyday business needs while also delivering a fantastic service. This will enable the business customer to focus on what they do best: grow their business, while MBE fuels that growth in the background.
Graphic design and print solutions: Everything from a simple business card to high quality corporate brochures can be designed and produced by in-house graphic designers and print professionals.
Shipping and courier services: MBE Point Cook has strategic relationships with local, national and international transport providers to deliver everything from a pin to a plane at various service levels and price points. Small, home-based businesses and e-tailers can now make fulfillment one less thing to worry about by engaging MBE to look after this critical part of their business.
“As we are the experts in picking, packing, storage, shipment processing and tracking, customers can outsource this often labor-intensive and time-consuming part of their business to us and focus on growing their business instead,” Duncan said, citing numerous examples local e-tailers who use MBE’s eShipping and Drop ‘n’ Go services.
The Vincent family has been resident in Werribee since 1992 with their two children born here and educated at Mackillop College. The eldest son, Curtis, has been managing the business since he finished Year 12 at age 18.
“Our consistent growth is proof the local business community will support businesses with a good work ethic, reliable service and competitive pricing. We not only plan to grow our business, employ more locals and win more awards but also open new stores in the emerging suburbs and neighbourhoods of Wyndham”, Duncan added.
