LANDMARK officially opened its new Merredin branch building last week, the first branch in WA to be co-branded with AWB Limited and have AWB staff located in the same building.
The move follows AWB's acquisition of Landmark from Wesfarmers last August and is a key milestone in the integration process of the two companies.
Landmark network manager for WA's northern region Howard Richardson attended the branch opening on Tuesday, which was launched by AWB chairman Brendan Stewart and managing director Andrew Lindberg.
"The Merredin branch signifies the first phase in combining the strengths of Landmark and AWB to form WA's most comprehensive supplier of agribusiness products and services," Mr Richardson said.
"Landmark has considerable experience in meeting the needs of the wheatbelt's primary producers and this can only be enhanced by the addition of the AWB grain specialists."
Visitors to the Merredin branch will appreciate the improved layout of the store, plus the privacy afforded to growers seeking specialist advice.
At the conclusion of the opening, Merredin branch manager Dwayne Brittain made special mention of the backing the store has received.
"We've had tremendous support from our clients, suppliers and the local community," Mr Brittain said.
"It's been a long haul but the final results are worth it and the new office, co-located with AWB, means we are able to offer farmers from Merredin and surrounding districts a one stop shop for all their farming needs."
