The two companies, which have been “working together” since 2007, see the new office as a further evidence of their “mutual commitment” to the Australian precious metal and allied industry.
Palloys Group managing director Andrew Cochineas said the company is looking to support both industry participants and jewellery education opportunities while establishing their unique offering in WA.
“We are delighted to strengthen our relationships across the territories and to develop our offering for current and prospective clients,” he said.
“With small businesses under pressure to capitalise on time and opportunities we want to ensure the Palloys Group does all it can to assist Australian jewellers.
“We hope that in establishing a physical presence in WA, the home of the Australian gold mining industry, we can offer a personalised local service to the manufacturing jewellery market encompassing all precious metal opportunities.”
According to Cochineas, the Perth office is a state-of-the-art facility offering a full service solution for precious metal including custom design manufacturer, findings, bullion trading, plating products and refining.
The office will be headed by JAA board member and TAFE lecturer Peter Keep who has been appointed as Palloys Group account executive and Steven Anderson who has been appointed office manager.
The new Palloys office is located at Level 3, 40 St Georges Terrace, Perth.
