Amazon Australia will begin to supply manicure set manufacturer Dremel with an array of new, high-quality brushes and brushes to meet the needs of the Australian market, its Australian operations boss said.
Dremel’s Australian arm, which was founded in 1997, has been growing rapidly in recent years, taking advantage of Amazon’s extensive online shopping, as well as its low prices and the popularity of its products, including its new Amazon Fresh delivery service.
Amazon Fresh is a $3.99 monthly delivery service that includes delivery on most items, including groceries, household essentials and electronics, as a perk for Prime members.
Dremels Australian headquarters are at the site of the former Woolworths supermarket in the city of Sydney.
“AmazonFresh is a great opportunity for us to build on our success in Australia and continue to develop our product range,” Dremels general manager David Kew said.
“Amazon Fresh will help us further our Australian growth plans, as we continue to grow our product portfolio.”
Amazon Fresh customers in Australia will get their new Amazon Prime orders delivered on a daily basis and be able to choose from different brands of products.
A selection of Dremeling brushes are also being rolled out for delivery within Australia.
This is the latest step in Amazon’s efforts to expand its Australian business, which has been one of the largest growth sectors for the online retailer.
The Australian business will now expand further in other countries.
Last week, Amazon announced it would open a new store in the UK and open a second store in New Zealand, where it is expected to build a second global logistics center in 2019.
In October, Amazon unveiled plans to open a $1.3 billion store in Japan, which it described as its “largest global store”.
In 2016, Amazon paid $4.9 billion to acquire the Australian retail giant JB Hi-Fi, which included the majority of its stock in the company.
Amazon said the deal included a $2 billion buyout price for JB.
