MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwired - May 12, 2016) - Gallagher is demonstrating its continued commitment to the Australian market with the official opening of their new regional headquarters in Melbourne today.

The new Customer Service Centre will house Gallagher's customer service, distribution, sales management, marketing, administration, technical support, and warehouse operation teams, servicing Australia wide.

General Manager Malcolm Linn said, "The new building doubles our capacity, so both its size and location improve our logistical capabilities. It also provides new opportunities in training, as well as customer and technical support."

The space will be occupied by staff from all three of Gallagher's business units -- animal management, security, and fuel systems.

The new Gallagher Customer Service Centre is accessible to the Hume Freeway while offering the added benefit of being located less than 20 km from the Melbourne International Airport.

"The new building sits right next to the Hume Freeway; with some 50,000 cars passing the site each day, it's a good way to promote the brand we're all so proud of."

Gallagher began operating in Australia in the late 1960s and since then they have continued to make strategic investments in this market.

The toll free number (1800 GALLAGHER) remains unchanged for customer service, technical support, trouble shooting and advice. The new Australian headquarters is situated at 65 Scanlon Drive, Epping, Victoria.

Sir William and Lady Judi Gallagher will attend the official opening along with members of Gallagher's board and executive management.
