Industries We Service
As market leaders in health, custodial and education environments, we have a vast selection of taps, water management systems and fixtures that have been specifically designed to meet the complex requirements of these industries. We can develop products to specification, as well as supply top-quality brands from across the globe, enabling us to offer solutions for all commercial projects.
As branded an Australian Made and Owned Business we go through the processes of manufacturing through to assembling our products for the market, on site at our Western Australian branch.
The journey of creating new products and improving existing products to meet customers needs begins in our Product Design room. From concept through to design and development, each step of the way, we ensure every part meets quality, compliance and regulatory requirements. Once the Designers are completely satisfied, we develop prototypes using 3D modelling software and 3D printing to test, evaluate and perfect our products to guarantee flawless performance.
Approvals and Pre-Production
Our Research & Development specialists ensure all quality and control standards are set and met. Their final detailed line drawings, CAD files, specifications and comprehensive product information instruct precise manufacturing, inspection, control, packaging and installation requirements. This level of attention to detail ensures that end-to-end quality of every product we manufacture and minimizes the margin of error, even when the product leaves our warehouse.
Using state-of-the-art Multiaxis CNC Lathes and CNC Milling Centres, our experienced Machine Shop team transform raw materials into components of tapware. Each product follows strict quality control processes to ensure it meets the exact requirements specified by our Product Design team before leaving production.
Our skilled Fabrication team accurately braze individual components together in a modular configuration to build the overall assembly structure. The process of annealing is used to produce free flowing curves and shapes to give our products their unique design features. All products are manufactured to a detailed engineering drawing with a high-level of accuracy and craftsmanship.
Our three-stage polishing process ensures our products are at a consistently high standard. By paying close attention under calibrated lighting, we remove blemishes to enhance the effect of chrome plating. Stage one, linishing, is the most abrasive step of sanding to remove excess metal. Stages two and three then refine, improve and perfect each product to deliver an exceptional finish.
All our products are chrome plated by trusted partners who share our exceptional production and service values. Their process is in accordance to Australian Standards to ensure the highest quality of application, resulting in a superior finish and durability. Items are returned to us within just a few days for final assembly and testing.
Assembly and Testing
When it’s time to assemble our products, all parts are inspected and where applicable will undergo rigorous pressure testing before being passed through to the final approval stage. Only once all the individual pieces have been fitted and successfully tested will they reach the final visual inspection step. With an eye for detail and accuracy, our Assembly Team package and label each approved product with all the relevant tags – including Australian Made, WaterMark and Lead Safe.
Warehouse and Replenish
As a proudly Australian business, we hold stock nation-wide across our NSW, VIC, QLD and WA warehouses, ensuring everything is readily available and quick to arrive on site. Working closely with our Customer Service Team, our Warehouse Teams provide regular updates to maintain optimal stock levels to meet customer needs at all times.
All our products can be delivered nationally and internationally, with orders regularly coming in from our distributors in the USA, UK, New Zealand and Singapore. We strive for next-day delivery for all our Australian customers and offer a wide range of delivery options, from small parcels to entire truck loads depending on where our customers are based.
