|New General Manager|
It is with GREAT pleasure that I introduce Paul Barker as the new General Manager of Sourcing Bali. Paul's role will be to handle all day to day operations of the company, including communication and reporting within departments, restucturing of work responsibilities and resources and improving back of house and adminstrative practices.

|New products online|
Our online range of products changes frequently. New designs, new suppliers and new finishes are loaded to our site every month. All newly added products are featured for 30 days in our 'new products' section before being transferred to the main listing. We encourage you to visit our site often to see what's new.
Bali has an abundance of suppliers and designs, and the range of products that are available is extensive. One of our key roles is to source the very best, the most unique and the highest quality within competitive price points. We strive to find and feature a diverse choice of products on our site, but if you dont find what you are looking for, please email us with the details, and we'll be happy to assist.
|new supplier - Laser cut Metal panels|
Laser cut metal panels are a wonderful and affordable way to add style and creativity to a room. This technology is now available in Bali.
Available in a range of colours and finisihes, these metal panels can be made to almost any design and to suit a wide range of applications. (room dividers, wall cladding, glass and mirror framing)
Small minimum qty's are available and custom orders are of course possible. Panels are prices per sqm and depend on the thickness and materials used.
The Elysian Resort and Spa, located in the heart of Seminyak has appointed Sourcing Bali to design and install the refurbishment for it's spa, 26 guest villas, bar, poolside and restaurant.
We are deligthed to have been selected for this bespoke / boutique project and the first phase is already completed. Part of the new spa is already in operation, and the mock up room for their guest villas is done. The installation of the rest of the rooms will commence in February.
The new decor maintains a rich blend of natural timbers including recycled teak headboards, rich fabrics and a sexy, spacious new bathroom.
The next phase of the project is already underway with the design and installation of the bar and lobby - we look forward to bringing you updates through out the year. The Elysian is the ideal size and scope of a project for Sourcing Bali / Bespoke Designs. Working closely with the owners and management, Sourcing Bali has created a stylish, cohesive design throughout the entire resort. With competition in Bali on the increase, it's more important than ever that Hotels and Resorts stay fresh and upgrade facilities.
For further details on how Sourcing Bali can assist you with your redesign and refurbishment, please email me on Desmond@sourcing-bali.com We look forward to being of service.
We LOVE getting feedback from our clients and this is particulary so when the feedback is so positive...
here's just a few which we've received recently...
"Dear RIM Cargo, I want to send you a huge THANK YOU! We have just opened the container and I have never seen a container so well packed. Nothing was broken, and I am amazed at how well you did."
"We were very happy with the way Rim Cargo packed and labeled the pieces. It was very important to us to have the box number, and part numbers on each label. The assembly instructions solely rely on the box numbers/part numbers. Rim Cargo did a great job! Many thanks."
"Hello Desmond, I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the work that your company does for our company. The guys were great! Robert is a master at what he does. He is so extremely knowledgable and well informed. He is amazing with details. He is usually really patient with me and I know I am a difficult and high maintenance client. Leo Was so sweet and helpful on the day he drove me around. It is such a treat to come to Bali to work with such pros. After all these years I am very happy to be able to know you and your company."
"It's been fantastic dealing with you all. The furniture looks fantastic. We are thoroughly impressed and happy to see it all in place."
We thank you all for your comments and for your support and we look forward to continuing to be of service.
|Welcome to Dwi, and Welcome back Pipin|
We are very pleased to welcome the newest addition to our team - Please meet Dwi. Dwi joins us as a newly created position as Sales Support - working as assistant to Wayan and Kres.

And some more good news... we are very pleased to welcome Pipin back to the family. Pipin took a year off to spend time as a 'stay at home mum' for her young children. The children are now both in school and Pipin has returned to the workforce. We are very happy to have her back.

Please join me in welcoming her back to Sourcing Bali. email@example.com
I am very pleased and proud to announce that on Wednesday, 23rd of January, 2013 I took the OATH of allegiance to Indonesia and became an Indonesian Citizen.
Having lived in this wonderful country since 1995 (except for 2 yrs in Singapore in 96-98) - a country which has provided me with enourmous opportunities, allowed me to experience a wonderful diversity of people, cultures and traditions - I decided to fully commit myself to the country that has given me so much. It was not an easy decision to make, given that I need to forfeit my Australian Citizenship, however I am committed 100% to Indonesia and end my days as an ex-patriate.
No doubt it will make travelling abroad a little more challenging, but no more or less than my fellow country men. The benefits far out way the inconveniences.
This change allows me to work with charities, expanding my role with HIV education and support in Bali, expand my businesses, and have the freedom of speech otherwise not permitted to an ex-pat.
Merdeka ! ( freedom )
