Established in 1983, Jeff and Helen Martin (2nd generation of Martins) took on the business in 2011. The business grew out of the Martin’s commercial quail, peasant and guinea fowl businesses.
COAST TO COAST VERMIN TRAPS
Established 1996, both businesses are currently ran on an 11 Acre or 4-4 Ha property 65 Km’s south of Perth Western Australia, just 4 Km’s from the coast near Rockingham. The property is owned by Rosemary & Chris Martin (original business owners & Jeff’s parents :) and leased by Jeff & Helen who live in town.
Both our businesses started with small retail sales, grew and then branched into wholesale. We now service a very large mail order client base in both Australia and overseas. We expand all areas of sales at every chance.
We carry around 1000 different items and that’s not including spare parts. But what we sell isn’t really the important part… it’s the fact that there are also around 500 spare parts in the workshop and we do the repair work. The shop has been described as an ‘Aladddins Cave’ – where else can you get a spare part for a mouse trap, a thermostat for a 25yr old incubator or seal for a part on a poultry drinker? And you get advice (and Helen’s stories!) along with a loud crow from Bruce the rooster who thinks he is a watch dog/chook.
Both businesses are built on service to a vast clientele with the motto:
SERVICE IS OUR BUSINESS
