Company Overview

samios company overview

Samios Plumbing Supplies was first opened in 1947 by a father and son team in Stones Corner, trading as a plumbing, hardware and earthmoving business. In 2004 the BGW Group purchased the plumbing side of the business, which was a perfect extension to CNW Electrical, the foundation business of BGW Group’s ever-expanding brand portfolio.

The BGW Group now incorporates more than fifteen 100% Australian privately owned and operated businesses with more than 1,100 staff in over 100 convenient locations throughout Australia. In addition to plumbing and electrical wholesale and retail outlets, the BGW Group has complimentary businesses which supply an extensive range of specialist products and solutions in the following areas:

Like Samios Plumbing Supplies, each business operates under its own brand but all work together to share expertise and support services, to leverage opportunities for growth, and to maximise efficiencies through collective buying power. This gives us the purchasing power to ensure you get the best products at the best price, when and where you need them.

Over the years we have focussed on providing excellent customer service whilst constantly expanding the company’s product range and networks. We take great pride in delivering superior service to all customers, regardless of industry or size and have helped our customers achieve success in a diversity of fields.

We ensure our team is constantly updating their knowledge base with the latest products and trends. This enables them to ensure we stock the latest and most effective products, stay one step ahead of any technological advances, and maintain strong relationships with our suppliers. This proactive strategy has seen us continue to grow and become one of the Australian plumbing industry’s premier suppliers.

Community and Industry Support

We are committed to maintaining the fabric of our communities and the strength of Australian industry. We are also passionate about creating local jobs, supporting local clubs and community groups, as well as investing in the future of Australian industry and sport.


We also support other Australian owned and operated businesses through our membership of AUSBUY, a non-profit organisation which encourages Australians to support Australian owned businesses, and to create an awareness of the number of Australian companies which are being sold to overseas interests.

Cadetship Program

Another way in which Samios Plumbing Supplies is showing its commitment to the youth of Australia is through our cadetship program. It allows school leavers to begin an apprenticeship with us that involves formal study, as well as on the job training at one of our branches. This program covers all areas of the business from stock management, to customer service, and purchasing.

Supporting healthy communities


Looking after Australia’s own is not only our motto in business, but in the wider community as well. We believe in supporting Australians at a grass roots level so we proudly support amateur sports persons and sporting teams throughout the country. Whether it is jerseys for the local junior football team, or helping future Olympians realise their dream, Samios Plumbing Supplies is there to help when it really counts. We believe that everyone should have the chance to succeed.
