Our Values

Service: Our customers come first no matter what. We will always go the extra mile.
With Quotes sent the same day or within 24 hours and goods sent to the site within 24 to 48 hours. From opening the warehouse out of hours, meeting someone or delivering to an airport out of hours with a last-minute requirement, to driving hundreds of kilometres to deliver an urgent item to a mine site or exploration camp. Our staff always make an effort to satisfy the customers.

Safety: In 2014 Westernex achieved ISO 9001:2008 Certification further underlining our focus on Quality Assurance.

Quality: Long-term relationships with factories, many of which produce exclusively for us, that allow us to exercise control over quality and to constantly work with them to improve and innovate. Many other suppliers have been providing us with service and quality for over 30 years. 

Integrity: our success as a company can only be sustained if that success is mutual to our clients our subcontractors, our suppliers and our team.
