His Excellency Mr Wahidullah Waissi, Afghanistan’s ambassador to Australia paid a visit to Accent Aluminium Windows and Doors in Bayswater North on 15th November 2019. The ambassador acknowledged the contribution Accent has made to Australia in the past 3 decades in providing secure long term employment for locals residing Melbourne’s Eastern Suburbs, as well as the impact Accent has had on the economy in the state of Victoria.
Currently Accent employs over 75 people in total and operates in 6 factories with more than 5,000 square metres of working space. The community leaders and the ambassador were taken on a tour to the showroom in the main office as well as the different divisions in the organisation.
The commercial division has just been relocated to a new factory with over 900 square metres of foot print, while the domestic division was planned to expand in November to the vacated factory.
All visitors were welcomed by the director, Mr Basir Abbass who had recently returned from Ethnic Business Awards night in Sydney, with traditional Afghani luncheon. Mr Basir Abbass thanked His Excellency, the ambassador for his visit by a small donation towards the people of Afghanistan.
At Accent Aluminium Windows and Doors, it’s never about windows and doors, it’s about the community and the world we live in. We love being part of the community and we love to contribute to the community. These visits are a testimony to our core beliefs and values, we appreciate everyone attending the gathering, especially His Excellency Mr Wahidullah Waissi and offer our support when required.
