From little things,
big things grow.
Half a shed in
Our story began in a back street of what was then NSW’s largest inland city, Wagga Wagga. Caterex, as we were then called, was a one-person catering supplier operating from half of a rented shed.
Steadily picking up customers and adding team members in the early years, saw us quickly outgrow our startup shed and we moved to a bigger warehouse around the corner.
Now fully established with a large, loyal client base and growing team, the business invested in its own 700sqm facility that was built to last. Today, it still houses the Wagga Wagga Sales Office and our Riverina Logistics Centre.
Now servicing clients further afield, we expanded the business into the Sydney metropolitan area, starting small in Seven Hills before adding our Sales Office and Logistics Centre at Riverstone in Sydney’s northwest.
Partnerships drive growth
Over a decade later, Caterex joined forces with a complementary business, Acropole Supplies, based in Molong, Central Western NSW. This deal included a stake in a third business, Dispo Distributors, from the Blue Mountains, which gave us a wider reach and extra capacity to grow.
Expansion into Brisbane
Having attracted contracts in Queensland, the decision was made to establish the Brisbane branch in Tingalpa, from where we looked after clients from Noosa, Gold Coast and Maryborough.
To consolidate the national expansion and growing team across multiple locations, Caterex launched a new name and brand to become officially known as Veridia.
Here comes Canberra
Again, led by customer demand, Veridia opened an office in our nation’s capital, Canberra ACT.
Time to shine
With a growing national presence across regional and metropolitan NSW, QLD and ACT, Veridia is excited to embrace a new decade of innovation and opportunities for our customers and people.
We have always been committed to organic growth that puts our people and customers first. In the years ahead we look forward to offering our clients the same care wherever they might be across Australia.
