Quentin has been plumbing for a few years now, and established his own business back in 2000. By 2005, his enterprise had expanded to the construction of steel water tanks, and Quentin White & Co Tanks and Plumbing was born.
With the help of wife Katrina, who undertakes all the administrative and finance duties (as well as helping out with the occasional install!), Quentin is proud to provide water solutions to customers throughout Victoria.
Also helping out is a hard-working team of labourers, which sometimes include sons Logan and Harrison.
Initially a distributor for Highline, Quentin became a member of the Pioneer Family when Pioneer acquired the brand in 2010. He hasn’t looked back since.
“I value being associated with an ‘iconic’ brand and constructing a great Australian product that has shown it will stand the test of time” he says.
“My job allows me to travel the countryside and meet a variety of customers every day of the week.”
“We see people from north-east and central Victoria; including high country, alpine and goldfield regions. This means we don’t really have a ‘typical customer’—we build tanks on domestic properties and hobby farms, as well as for commercial and fire storage and vast farming enterprises.”
WHAT’S THE BEST THING ABOUT BEING AN AUTHORISED DEALER OF PIONEER WATER TANKS?
We all like to talk shop with our peers, and Quentin is no different! He appreciates being able to contact other dealers for advice.
“Being a part of a network is really important for me as a dealer—it means you have support and back up if you need it. It is also very unique being part of a dealer network, as no other tank company has this. This gives customers an experienced and trained ‘local’ person who they can contact, who can guide them in their choice of water tank and answer all their questions, and a go to person who will also offer them a personalised level of service.”
