This week Stellar assisted A.H. Beard, one of Australia’s leading manufacturers of quality handcrafted mattress and bedding, in welcoming franchisees from Shanghai Green to their Padstow manufacturing facilities. The visit celebrated a successful partnership that has resulted in 34 A.H. Beard branded stores opening in China since 2013 with revenue doubling every year since its launch. It also provided a platform to announce the future vision to open 100 stores within the next 5-10 years.
First established in 1899, A.H. Beard is a fourth-generation family owned business with manufacturing facilities in six capital cities throughout Australia and New Zealand. Shanghai Green’s visit highlighted the world-class manufacturing and quality standards that has made A.H. Beard a highly revered brand in China.
It was a pleasure to have Ross Greenwood and the 9News team reporting onsite and interviewing A.H. Beard’s CEO Tony Pearson, Chairman and Managing Director Garry Beard and Director Allyn Beard.
