Important Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates and information for Middy’s customers
It is with deep sadness that we mark the passing of Mr Hugh Middendorp.
Hugh had a pivotal role in the foundation of Middendorp Electric Co P/L from its inception, working with his father and brothers, Peter and Nick, firstly in the Middendorp manufacturing plant in Preston in the 1930s. Together they progressed the business into the new millennia and grew Middy’s into Australia’s largest independent electrical wholesaler.
The Middy’s Industrial offer continues to expand across our national branch network at a fast pace. Simultaneously, the Industrial team is also growing and we’re very pleased to have added two new dedicated Industrial Business Development Managers to our sales network. Both Hank Terpstra and Dean Sullivan are based in Victoria but will be supporting national enquiries alongside Troy Crawford (Industrial Sales Representative for North Victoria, Riverina NSW & ACT) and National Industrial Manager, Trevor Quaini.
The HomeBuilder grant is one of the key pillars of Australia’s response to COVID-19's economic recovery plan. In what has proved to be challenging times for many Australians, we’re now able to look forward to the resurgence of the construction industry with the Government’s 1.3 billion dollar investment for the building of new homes and significant renovations to existing properties.
The original Middendorp Electric Oakleigh branch, one of the first five Middy’s branches, was opened in 1961 to service Oakleigh and the growing south eastern suburbs. The early days saw trade sales at the front of the building with some Middendorp manufacturing continuing in the rear with some rubber moulding machines producing the Middy branded plug tops for a period until injection moulding took over and the family then focused more strongly on wholesaling.
Middy’s Darwin is proud to offer customers a DC electric vehicle charger with up to 25kW output. This system allows you to charge electric cars 12 times faster than with a standard domestic socket and it is an ideal, affordable charging solution for commercial, fleet and private use vehicles.
Middy’s Oakleigh first opened in 1961 and has been servicing Oakleigh and the surrounding areas for 59 years. Middy’s acquired land next door at 1/1609-1615 Dandenong Rd (Cnr Ferntree Gully Rd & Lever St) to design and build a purpose-built wholesale branch. The new branch will support Middy’s efforts to serve the local industry for many years to come.
Middy's sales representatives from across the nation came together to recognise and celebrate outstanding individual achievements and team success in 2019.
