One Ten Enterprises began operating on the 19th May 1989, as a sole proprietor entity by Mr. Abbas Ponjoo.
Mr Ponjoo saw a need to assist Charitable Organisations deal with surplus and inappropriate donated goods.
Under the strong leadership of Mr. Ponjoo, One Ten Enterprises opened its first Australian Warehouse in Melbourne and quickly developed efficient systems to grade; sort & export used clothing to a number of countries on the African Continent.
The first charity to embrace Mr Ponjoo’s concept was The Salvation Army in Victoria. This relationship has developed into a strong and healthy long term arrangement
Following the sad passing of Mr. Ponjoo on the 21st November 2005, One Ten Enterprises continued to operate as a family owned business with family members assuming the role of directors, appointing Mr. Sonny Ponjoo as CEO.
One Ten Enterprises relocated their head office to Sydney and quickly developed a long lasting relationship with The Salvation Army Salvos Stores. Other charitable organisations throughout NSW and QLD have also taken advantage of One Ten Enterprises program that is assisting charities to become responsible recyclers and dispose of surpluses more effectively.
In January 2009, One Ten Enterprises appointed Michris Solutions as its Customer Service Management to assist with the streamlining of administration, ensuring quality customer service and managing future growth.
Greetings, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our site.
Since moving our head office to Sydney we have operated in three locations, we began first in a warehouse at Arncliffe, this site was suitable initially.
Our second facility was in Granville, after only 12 months we had out grown the warehouse.
The hunt began to find a large warehouse that we could call home for a long time.
In late December 2010, early January 2011 we relocated to our current warehouse. We now operate out of a 3000 Square metre facility in Fairfield East.
Our operation is one of transparency, every item that we purchase from Australian charities is sent overseas, we containerise all stock received and ship to our processing plant in Dubai, all stock is then processed and shipped to our three African warehouses located in Madagascar, Mozambique and Kenya.
All stock then is used for our commercial and charitable interests in those particular countries.
Finally I would like to say how much we value and appreciate our existing charities and we thank you for your ongoing support.
We would also issue an invitation for charitable organisations interested in learning more about our program, simply click here.
Mr Sonny Ponjoo – CEO
