"The processes we have in place mean we are able to work with staff on the strategic direction of our group and opportunities that exist in the market place," said Mr Garvie. Mr Garvie, who is also the principal of Miscamble Bros, CRT's store in Roma, said the addition of 29 new members to the group during the company's last financial year was a direct result of the hard work that staff had put in, the great offer that CRT has in place and the professional image that CRT retailers present to the market place. "This is the highest number of new members to join CRT in a 12 month period in over 20 years. This growth has boosted our buying power with our suppliers and put CRT in a stronger position. I believe there is still more growth to come as we increase our national footprint and work directly with our members to help them expand their businesses."
