Safer Storage Systems (SSS) has recently commenced the production of P90+ Racking right here in Melbourne. It offers customers shorter lead times, reduced freight costs and consistently high quality at any time of year.
With many overseas supply chains shut down or severely impacted in response to COVID-19, it has put renewed focus back on local manufacturing. The ability to access products offshore has never been more challenging, with often lengthy (or indefinite) delays and added charges.
In addition to supply issues, there is also a strong desire to support local businesses to boost the Australian economy. Locally made products mean more jobs for Australians as well as a host of benefits for the buyer. The main benefits include reduced delivery costs, shorter lead times and consistent quality due to the high standards for safety and quality control we have in place here in Australia.
The SSS team is proud to be one of the few racking companies manufacturing product in Australia and is passionate about growing Australia’s manufacturing presence through the company’s global partnership with European storage manufacturer Gonvarri Material Handling (GMH).
The move to local manufacturing is something the team has been working towards for several years, as it aligns strongly with the SSS focus on offering customers the highest standards in quality and safety.
P90+ Racking is a cutting-edge pallet racking product designed in Europe by world leading engineers. Safer Storage Systems has the exclusive rights to manufacture the racking components locally in Australia – providing businesses across the country with access to the premium product range.
SSS is equipped with an industrial welding machines located in their Dandenong South premises with beams welded and painted on site, on demand.
The ability to produce the racking locally, from start to finish, allows SSS to maintain complete control over product supply and keep up with demand for product at all times of year. It also reduces the reliance on international supply chains, giving the SSS team and customers confidence in product access now and well into the future.
Director Matt Bell says, “Supporting local has never been more important and manufacturing our P90+ Racking in Australia allows us to maintain a strong and stable supply for our customers. The product itself is also a standout in the industry, and we invite all businesses to discover the quality firsthand.”
