Officially opened this month, the four-level property located in Milton is the new headquarters for approximately 30 staff across Maxum’s sales, quality assurance, finance, customer service and marketing divisions.
The company is a supplier of dairy ingredients such as milk powders, cheese and butter to the food, health and animal nutrition industries in Australia and New Zealand.
Maxum Foods director David Russell said following consistent growth over the last few years, the new office purchase puts the company in a prime position for its future expansion plans.
“We are really proud of the business we have built over the past 18 years,” Russell said.
“Our focus is to continue to grow our dairy ingredient business across Australia and New Zealand delivering quality products to customers. As we grow, we have the opportunity to expand in this new space. Purchasing our new office is very much an investment in our business and our people.”
A primary focus area will be the growing food service business, launched just 18 months ago, with an expanding portfolio of key dairy brands and products sourced from around the globe for the Australian and New Zealand markets.
Similarly, the infant animal nutrition offering under the MaxCare banner is in the midst of further expansion. Having found its footing in Australia, MaxCare’s growth in New Zealand is a key priority for the dairy group.
“There’s new product development underway and we’re excited to expand the MaxCare range in the near future,” Russell said.
“We want to be seen as the key dairy player when it comes to the food and animal industries across the Tasman.”
