Queensland-based Precisionscreen joined Australian Made Campaign Limited (AMCL), which aims to promote local industries, earlier this month.
Most of Precisionscreen’s locally manufactured products – which include mobile screening, washing and recycling equipment – will now be able to carry the logo. The business also plans to use it online and in print.
The supplier’s general manager, Paul Kerr, said the company was “exceptionally proud” to be recognised.
“We know our customers are looking for Australian made machinery that is manufactured locally and keeps Australian workers in jobs,” Kerr said.
“The Australian Made logo is highly recognisable and will help us stand out from the crowd.”
Kerr added the quarrying industry is “very competitive” and a strong point of difference for Precisionscreen is that many of its products are manufactured in the country to suit local conditions.
“It makes sense for us to leverage that fact by using the Australian Made, Australian Grown logo,” he explained.
A study carried out by Roy Morgan Research showed in the 12 months to September 2015, 89.2 per cent of Australians aged 14 and over showed a preference towards locally made products.
AMCL chief executive Ian Harrison welcomed Precisionscreen as a licensee, adding: “Australia’s reputation for producing products and produce to high quality and safety standards is driving sales in Australia but we’re also seeing a huge impact overseas – opportunities for exporters are booming.
“No doubt, that’s what Precisionscreen is seeing for themselves with their ability to meet the needs of a diverse range of clients.”
Harrison said Australia’s quality and safety standards for production are some of the most stringent in the world, which has led to a “stellar” reputation abroad.
Precisionscreen, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, now has equipment in more than 15 countries including the US, Italy, the Philippines and Malaysia.
