Stephen Cristofel heads our packaging department across northern Adelaide and says Bedford now services more than 40 wineries and bottling companies from the Barossa and Gawler belt.
“A lot of our customers send their work to us because the quality is great, the price is competitive, and they tell us it feels good to help provide employment to people with disability,” Stephen said.
One of our local customers is Prowine which has begun a new initiative to reward our great team members with “Employee of the Month” awards.
Prowine’s site manager Garry Milhench says the monthly winner’s name will be engraved on a plaque and they’ll also be presented with a $100 gift voucher.
“We would like to establish this continuing relationship with the Bedford Group in helping the local community. The work Bedford has been doing is amazing and incredible, and Prowine is honoured to be part of it,” Garry said.
Adelaide’s northern suburbs has one of the fastest growing rates of people with disability so the goal for Stephen and the team at Elizabeth is to expand our site to accommodate more workers in wine labelling and many other industries.
“We are close to the Barossa but we are even closer in proximity to South Australia’s main freight terminal at Edinburgh so, potentially we can service wineries from much further afield. It’s an exciting time here and we want industries to know we are open for business,” Stephen said.
