Signode is Australia’s only manufacturer of plastic and steel strapping products.
The company has been manufacturing plastic and steel strapping in Australia for over 30 years, specialising in high-performance solutions for a wide range of industries, ranging from food and beverage to metals, brick and timber industries.
Geoff Upton, Signode’s National Sales and Marketing Manager, says manufacturing locally is critical for the success of the business.
“Because our products are made in Australia, they have to comply with Australia’s very stringent quality and safety standards, and the Australian Made logo provides that reassurance to customers that the integrity of the product is there,” Mr Upton said.
“Many businesses rely on our packaging products to safely transport their products, and reduce the risk of damage to the products themselves, and to ensure the safety of the people working to transport them from an OH&S perspective.”
“The benefits of procuring Australian Made products versus imported products, is that our customers can be sure that the product they purchase has been tested thoroughly, greatly reducing the risk of breakage and poor quality strap – you can imagine when it comes to load containment this gives our customer’s great peace of mind, not only from a load containment perspective but also from an OH&S perspective.
“We are proud to say that we employ more than 100 employees across Australia and NZ, who are dedicated to making and supplying high quality products that are available when our customers need them.”
Manufacturing locally allows Signode to fulfil orders much more quickly, versus the 10-12 week lead time importers require.
“It’s important to back up a quality product with a strong customer service team – we aim to offer a one-stop-shop for load containment,” Mr Upton said.
“We intend to continue to provide that offering for generations to come.”
Signode continues to expand into export markets, now selling its famous Australian Made products to countries all over the APAC region, including Korea, China, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan and New Zealand.
“Without a doubt the logo is revered overseas. People recognise it and they trust it, Mr Upton said.
“It is useful to buyers because they know they don’t have to research any further if they see the logo on a product – it is understood that the logo can only be used if the product meets certain criteria.”
