Celebrating Australian Manufacturing: ColbyRACK Achieves “Australian Made” Licensing During Australian Made Week

Safe Working load signs are not just informational tools but are vital for compliance, safety communication, and the prevention of accidents. This comprehensive guide underscores the importance of SWL signs, delves into the risks of incorrect application, and outlines the standards and practices necessary to maintain a safe and efficient storage environment.

We are excited to share some fantastic news! ColbyRACK, our Australian-made pallet racking systems, have officially received the official “Australian Made” licensing. Total Racking Systems has proudly distributed ColbyRACK in Sydney and Newcastle for over 40 years. This recognition comes just in time for Australian Made Week, celebrated from May 20-26, 2024.

A True Aussie Success Story in Pallet Racking

ColbyRACK, the leading Australian made pallet racking system by Dematic, has been manufactured on Sydney’s northern beaches for over 55 years. Now, with the iconic green and gold Australian Made, Australian Grown (AMAG) logo, ColbyRACK stands as a testament to genuine Australian quality and innovation.

The range offers versatile configurations, including single-deep, double-deep, narrow aisle, and drive-in or drive-through options. All are designed, engineered, and manufactured by Dematic’s Australian team to meet rigorous national standards and supplied locally by Total Racking Systems in Sydney and Newcastle.

Commitment to Quality and Safety

Recently, Lee Koutsos, the head of Dematic ANZ Storage Equipment Division, said, “We take immense pride in our long history of Australian manufacturing. The Australian-made license applied to our ColbyRACK range underscores our commitment to local manufacturing. It assures our customers that the products and solutions we provide are locally made, locally supported, and designed to meet Australian safety and quality standards.”

At Total Racking Systems, we align with these values and are committed to providing top local service to ensure your storage needs are met and your operations run efficiently.
