What does it take to be the market leader? Our MD explains how our people keep us on top of the game.
Working at Bakers
Bakers Construction + Industrial Supplies is a well respected and recognised brand in the industrial market within the greater Sydney and regional NSW area. Bakers have a reputation for their knowledge, tenacity and dedication to provide our customers with superior service.
Our position in the market is strengthened by our exceptional transactional capability as a single source supplier and we lead the market in our product breadth and depth. However our success wouldn’t be possible without the commitment demonstrated on a daily basis by our people. This is what clearly separates Bakers from our competition.
What is our secret to attracting and retaining committed employees? We only select the best people and then provide opportunities for coaching and training to further develop their skills and expertise. With our performance driven culture, we help our people realise their full potential in a safe, enjoyable, challenging and rewarding environment.
