In 2011, the company opened a dealership in Jamestown, offering sales, parts and servicing to a vast and wide cross section of industries.

Such was the growth, in 2016 the company appointed service manager, Nigel Hillam, as the branch manager.

In 2014 Debra Wehrmann joined the team as the administration manager and quickly set about reviewing procedures and streamlining best practices. It was at this time Trevor expressed the need for the company to start the succession plan for his retirement and consequently started handing over the majority of his responsibilities to Debra.

While Trevor has retired from his manager’s role, he’s still an integral part of the business as a project manager. His position and understanding of the business has been a driving force to the success behind the purchase and set up of both Saddleworth and Karoonda branches.

On July 1, 2017 Debra was appointed business manager and together with Phil Stanway, leads the company to the next chapter of WSB Distributors.

 

Looking toward the future and growing on the company name, in 2017 WSB Distributors purchased R H Schulz Pty Ltd at Saddleworth, which continues to be managed by former owner of R H Schulz, Peter Schulz. The takeover has given WSB excellent leverage and convenience to its customers in the Gilbert Valley & Barossa Valley regions.

November 2018, as the company celebrated 80 years in business, a deal was met with GJ Clarke & Co in Karoonda and WSB Distributors took ownership, pushing the further growth of the name. Former GJ Clarke & Co company director, Luke Hocking, leads the Karoonda team as branch manager and wasted no time in extending the WSB reputation throughout the Murray Mallee and Riverland regions.
