In addition the company also provides a range of industrial packaging consumables, strapping hand tools, automated load containment solutions and technical support in its Signode Automation team (consultancy, engineering and service). Of particular importance to Signode is its reputation as a specialist provider of load containment systems. ”The benefits of buying Australian-made are sometimes not that obvious, but our customers can be assured that the Signode products they use have been manufactured using quality materials to exacting standards and are rigorously tested,” says Mr Andrew Dallison, MD Signode Australia & NZ.
With over 40 years’ experience in the timber industry, Signode prides itself on an extensive customer portfolio of wood product industry leaders in both Australia and New Zealand. “Our close and longstanding relationship with our customers provides firsthand industry experience and insight, this enables us to better address the industrial packaging needs of our timber industry customers,” says Geoff Upton, Australian & NZ Sales and Marketing Manager at Signode.
“Our experience and close customer relationships provide a catalytic for many of the exciting engineering and R&D projects we have currently running” adds Mr Upton. “Of particular interest to the timber industry is our brand new Modular Designed Timber Press which tackles head on many of the challenges our customers have experienced over the years,” adds Mr Upton.
Signode’s in-house Engineering Team is at the heart of this new innovation which provides customers with an alternative to traditional all-encompassing models. “For years we have listened to our customers tell us that they want a ‘customised solution’, they no longer want to pay for components of equipment which they don’t need so this gave us the idea of a Modular Design. The new Signode Modular Timber press enables Signode to customise the Timber Press and integrate only the components required by the customer. This enables us to provide a more specialised solution and provide customers with a more affordable option.”
