Why Buy Australian Made?

Australian Made for the Australian Climate

We are a proud, family-owned, Australian company and have been manufacturing playgrounds in our Perth factory for over 40 years. All those years ago, we made the decision to keep Virtually all manufacturing in-house while our competitors have increasingly turned to importing products. Over the years we have expanded our manufacturing base, opening our own plastics rotational and injection moulding and ropes factory. We are so proud to be an Australian company, we put it in our name.

So why is buying Australian made so important?
