Aluminium Plus is a local company in Salisbury South established in 1998. Aluminium Plus provides high quality, attractive and secure made-to-measure windows and doors with installation options. It is now owned by Shane and Mel Spher who both got a clearer view about doing business when they attended a Polaris Business Fundamentals Workshop. Mel also attended Women In Business events to hear others’ stories and experiences with their businesses. Inspired, informed and ready as can be, they bought Aluminium Plus in 2019.

Transitioning into small business owners, Shane and Mel quickly got to know its inherent customs and practices, and eventually sought guidance to clear the way for greater growth. They signed up for a marketing program with Polaris and found that extremely helpful in learning how to promote the business and set up a website.

They then joined Mentoring for Success for more personalised support. Over the last nine months, their mentor has been guiding them across all aspects of their business, particularly with how to build a winning team, manage staff, prepare for expansion and get systems in order with good budget control and financial reporting.

Shane and Mel, proud of their achievements.

The Polaris Centre has been so helpful for our business. We’ve been able to gain so much knowledge from our mentor’s experiences. We’ve learned how to fish instead of getting someone to fish for us. And, thanks to Polaris, our business now has an online presence.

Mel Spher, Director

Aluminium Plus has maintained and developed their reputation with glowing feedback on their quality products, hassle-free delivery, excellent service, and in-depth knowledge. Growth has been steady, and they are in good form to begin their expansion soon.
