When professionalism wears White Gloves
Embarking on a Remarkable Tale
Picture this: a world where vision meets opportunity, and an extraordinary company is born.
Once upon a time, in 2009, there was a bond where trust and mutual respect were not empty words, but the foundation of a great narrative waiting to unfold.
This story begins with Ryan Hunter, who while working at International Art Services (IAS), identified a gap in furniture logistics. Nestled in the heart of Sydney, Australia, this gap begged to be bridged with finesse akin to the world of fine art logistics.
Ryan, therefore, brought this to the attention of Kingsley Munday, the owner of IAS. Now Kingsley, wise and forward-thinking, saw the potential in Ryan’s vision and encouraged him to set up his Hunter & Co. Transport. Kingsley gave Ryan dual powers of entrepreneurship and a continuing role at the IAS.
The rest, as they say, became a harmonious history of mentorship and friendship: Kingsley thus became, over time, a loyal mentor and close friend.
Hunter & Co. Today
Fast forward fourteen years and here we are, looking at the brilliant company Hunter & Co., with its team of 25 people.
Ryan Hunter and Hamilton Ribeiro are currently the Managing Directors (whereas Nicole Cramey and Pierre Etienne Mathot previously held the same position). Last but not least, Operations Manager Kyle Dolan.
This crew has only one mission: to make customers feel like royalty, taking care of them especially in the delicate final phase – the last physical mile.
The legendary White Gloves Delivery and more!
H&Co. is best known for its highly sought-after White Glove service, symbolised by the literal use of white gloves. This complete package includes installation and meticulous removal of packaging.
Another frequently requested service is the correction of failed delivery attempts initiated by other delivery services.
In order to guarantee optimal results, Hunter & Co. deploys balcony lifts, hoists and collaboration in crane operations, just to name a few examples. Of course, the needs of customers and suppliers have changed over time, e H&Co. elegantly danced its way into adapting services. Among these, commercial and residential storage and consolidation are the true stars of this evolving saga.
A new dawn in Brisbane
Hunter & Co. not only embraced change but also chased the sparkle of growth.
The story took a double turn in Brisbane, where a new chapter began on 1 September.
The same majestic services that Sydney had enjoyed find a home here too.
A bold two-day strategy, soon to be expanded due to the impending high season, ushered in a fresh era.
The supervisors of H&Co. will then be transferred to Brisbane in October-December, due to growing demand.
Our Unbreakable Bond
And then emerges the heart of it all – the unbreakable bond between Hunter & Co. and us at Salbini. It’s not just business; it’s an alignment of values and ethics.
“The inclusion of the Salbini team has undeniably enriched H&Co.’s portfolio. Their insights are instrumental in refining, adapting, and gaining ideas, making the learning process invaluable for us”; these are the words Hunter & Co. dedicated to us.
So, let’s raise a toast to Hunter & Co. – a saga of trust, evolution and spirited collaboration. Here’s to a future where the pages continue to turn, and the legacy continues to grow.
Cheers to Hunter & Co., where the ordinary becomes extraordinary, one white-gloved step at a time.
