On Thursday 5th February 2015 Chesterfield Australia hosted the first ‘Business After Hours’ for Goondiwindi in 2015.
Manager Andy Bibby spoke of the history of Chesterfield and it was interesting to learn that this company was established in Moree and is a family owned and operated business.
Chesterfield really work hard at being involved in the community and each year contribute approximately $80,000 into the local community to sponsor large events and promote their great business.
Currently Chesterfield employ 21 staff. Their mechanics are some of the best in Australia and the track record for staff retention in this business is pretty remarkable with 2 staff currently celebrating being employees for more than 30 years!
The Business After Hours was held in the Chesterfield Showroom were visitors could view the new model John Deer Lawn Mowers and the entire wall dedicated to Children’s play toys! This business can sometimes be forgotten when it comes to gift giving as it is not in the main street, so remember next time your son wants a brand new tractor or truck to go and check out the range at Chesterfield Australia.
