Message from the CEO:

What's in Store for 2017

It’s hard to believe that yet another year has commenced with some of us still scratching our head as to how quickly last year disappeared!

2016 will be remembered for a number of reasons but perhaps none-more-so than the fact that a reality TV star was voted in as the next President of the United States. Donald Trump’s victory created heated debate and even impacted commodity markets as our Cable Guy piece on page 8 of this issue explains.


But what can we look forward to in 2017?


Well after such huge success last year, I’m pleased to announce that our Bucket List promotion is back in 2017 with even bigger prizes up for grabs! With three levels of spend targets, there is an opportunity for every Auslec/L&H customer to win…..and WIN BIG!

Reaching our level one target will automatically qualify you for a State based sporting experience while those reaching our level 2 qualification could see themselves jetting off to Abu Dhabi to watch the F1 Grand Prix at the fabulous Yas Marina circuit. Level 3 qualifiers could win the trip of a lifetime taking in the famed Oktoberfest in Munich and touring the sights and history of London in the UK! Be sure to drop into your local Auslec or L&H branch for full details.


Something else to look forward to in 2017 is the continued evolution of eBranch. We’ve refined a number of areas that sees the App jam-packed with new features such as stock on hand visibility, access to even more products and easier searchability for products & branches. You can also keep up-to-date with all our fantastic promotions throughout 2017 – including Bucket List – via eBranch as well!


So there you have it, we’ve geared up for a big year and look forward to working with all our customers to make sure it is a successful one.


Best regards,


Ross Swepson. CEO Auslec and L&H
