“…This has served us well. However, to continue to provide innovative, high quality product and service solutions, we started to broaden our focus on building new partnerships to increase our capabilities and meet our customer needs into the future,” Schneider said.

“The last three years have been challenging for us as we’ve acquired a range of businesses in Australia to underpin our global brand.

“Our Australian operations are critical in the Asia Pacific region, representing the majority of industry growth opportunities. Now, we’re excited to announce that all of the pieces are in play for us to truly exceed our customers’ expectations and bring new approaches and technologies to market. We can’t wait to start working with you to leverage our products and services into industrial solutions that meet your needs today and into the future.”

The news follows the recent announcement of Rema Tip Top’s new Brisbane Centre of Excellence, which aims to expand the company’s operations and service capabilities on the east coast of Australia.

“This, combined with an increased commitment to training a new workforce to meet our own growing needs and also to help sustainably supply the industries in which we operate, we’re demonstrating that we’re future focused,” Schneider said.
