Good on ya!  Great News!  Masters Home Improvement (a joint venture between Lowe’s and Australia’s Woolworth) recently opened in Australia and our own Nick Grooters, Export Sales Manager, was there to celebrate the grand opening!

The new CEO of Masters Home Improvement is Don Stallings, former head of Lowe’s Canada.  According to an August 30, 2011 report in  The Sydney Morning Herald “the new home improvement and hardware retailer will generate more than $23 million in annual sales from each store as it ramps up to open its maiden outlet in Melbourne on Thursday and secure 150 sites in the next few years.”….. “Mr Stallings said many of the key products carried by Masters were new to Australia and exclusively offered by the chain, especially in the paints and tools range which were crucial products for hardware and home improvement shoppers.”

The new home improvement store will be a major competitor to Bunnings which operates over 300 locations in Australia and New Zealand.  To hear more watch this news report.

Super Glue Corporation is proud to have many of our most popular adhesive products in the new chain of stores.  Check out the beautiful sea of yellow and red products neatly set in the first Masters store in Braybrook! 

Congratulations, Masters Home Improvement!  We look forward to being a part of your success!
