email@example.com introduction to Scrooz ®
A bit more about Scrooz ®We’re an Australian independently owned company, based in the Redlands Qld, with over 20 years international experience in the fixings and fasteners industry. We know fasteners very well and more importantly how to sell them.We are a high volume, maximum profit business with strong branding offering a fresh, current solution to fastener retail, ensuring our customers get the right fixing for the job at the right price, day or night, seven days a week.We sell our high performance premium quality products direct to end users and we want to keep our prices as low as possible, so you can’t buy Scrooz® products through any other distributors, middle men or re-sellers. Typically you’ll find our pricing around half that of a major hardware store or local bolt shop and so combined our much higher product quality, you can see why our customers love us and why we’re expanding rapidly.What do we sellOur range has been tailored specifically for the Australian market focusing on a streamlined combination of our own innovative and exclusive trademarked products, sourced globally to international standards, along with high volume popular products.Most fastener companies and bolt shops stock and sell all sorts of sizes and types of bolts and screws, from old imperial threads to obscure metals and finishes. Whilst they serve the local community admirably, the fact is these fasteners are sold in very small volume which generates little profit and could be held in stock for years. Our core range has been designed to offer everything our target market needs but massively simplified, resulting in easier stock control allowing you to concentrate on maximising profits through volume sales.Our company is aligned with AS/NZ ISO9001:2008 and our products meet Australian Standards where applicable, we even carry the premium and highly prized European Technical Approvals on some of our products. Nothing goes in a Scrooz ® box until we’ve rigorously tested and approved it. Our brand is synonymous with high quality fasteners, fit for the trade and we want to keep it that way.How do we sellOur multi channel sales operation includes a highly successful ecommerce store for 24/7 web ordering, national telephone sales ordering and full facility in-store local shopping.All our products are fully priced on our website, downloadable flip book and free giveaway 120 page trade catalogue all of which are constantly updated so the customer has the complete range, pricing and new product information at their fingertips at all times.Increasing accessibility to our range is the foundation of what we do and our network roll-out of local branches will achieve our goal of 100% digital and traditional access to Scrooz ® products across Australia.

How big is the marketThe home improvement market is worth an estimated $42 billion annually in Australia along with a construction industry worth $305 billion, add into this the equally sized engineering, manufacturing and maintenance sectors and you start to see just how huge the market is. Recent figures estimate the fixings and fastener industry to be one of the largest and most profitable in the supply chain with an estimated sales for 2012 of $4-5 billion.A predicted explosion in population of 38% to over 30 million by 2030 will result in massive demand for construction of new housing and renovation of existing housing stock and support buildings such as schools and hospitals etc, and we’ll be ready for it.So why choose fastenersSelling fasteners is fantastic, they have a high profit margin, compared to most goods, and best of all they are a repeat sale consumable, so a loyal trade user will keep buying continually. Statistics show a carpenter will buy an average of only 3-5 hammers in his trade life, compare that to 1-2 million screws per average tradesman.They’re also easy to store and ship compared to other construction products like timber, bricks and plasterboard and most have no shelf life. The misconception that small parts generate small orders is nonsense, with typical order values in the range of $250 to $1000, and lots of them, it’s a great industry to be in.Who is our target customerTradesmen from the construction, renovation and maintenance markets are the biggest users and we also target customers from the light manufacturing to heavy engineering industries, but of course our multi channel selling means everyone now has the access to our high performance products and we welcome all customers.Australia is a practical nation, everyone is ‘doing’ something, just look down any street at the number of utes and sheds and that will tell you that this ‘hands on’ nation loves building, renovating and making things and we’re delighted to offer them quality Scrooz ® products, made for the job, at the right price with all the convenience of 24 hour shopping.The competitionWe are the first company to offer a franchise system in the fasteners and fixings industry. On a national level, our business model is completely unique. On a local level, we are half the price of typical bolt shops and large retailers and we don’t compromise on quality, so the answer is – what competition?
