Blacktown Steel Store in Sydney’s west has been providing metal and steel solutions for over fifteen years. So, for the biggest range in metal available online, including stainless steel, mild steel, engineering steels or construction steel – in just about every shape, grade and dimension, Blacktown Steel Store can deliver for your next steel project.
Brian is a truck driver for the Blacktown store, so he knows his way around the traps. “Every store has its own drivers, but you can travel Sydney-wide on any day, so there’s a lot of ground to cover,” he says.
A varied background
“I’ve worked in a few areas. I wanted to work in engineering when I was growing up and I moved into fitting and turning. I worked in construction, and then I made neon signs for over 20 years. I enjoy the driving job more than any of that. I’ve been doing it for eight years, and I really like that you get time to yourself – but also have the interaction with customers.”
Life on the road
“I enjoy woodwork when I’m at home and I love spending time with my five grandkids. When I’m not doing that, I really like hitting the road on one of my motorbikes – maybe getting out on a country road on my 1966 Harley. Being outdoors suits me – and that’s one reason why I enjoy working at Edcon. I definitely couldn’t sit inside all day.”
Treating the team well
“I had some bad experiences in previous jobs (including a boss who ran off, leaving staff out of pocket) so it’s a nice change here at Edcon. They look after you pretty well. There are good people to work with – and nothing’s a hassle. If there’s a problem, it’s sorted out quickly and easily. It’s an easy-going team and that makes it a good place to be.”
