Why Buy Australian Made and Local?

Why Buy Australian Made and Local?

September 28, 2022

The last couple of years have changed the purchasing habits of Australians. While 2020 sounded the death knell for many Australian brick and mortar businesses, it heralded a push into increased online sales of Australian made and local goods.

Consumer research by Roy Morgan found that Australians prefer Australian made products across a wide range of categories. The most important reasons for buying Australian made products are:

  1. Better Quality
  2. Support Local Businesses
  3. Support Local Job Creation

An Omnibus survey by Australia Post found out that 30% of respondents are making an effort to buy more Australian made products than they did previously, while 23% of buyers said they are more conscious about buying from businesses in their local areas.

Why Australian Made?

Australia produces a large variety of products. Some of the products are branded with the Australian-Made logo which confirms the product is genuinely made in Australia. When you buy Australian products, the money you spend stays in Australia.

Supporting the Australian Economy

When you purchase from Australian companies, you keep money within the country, and it generates more income by supporting the economy. As per the Australian-Made website, every $1,000,000 generated by an Australian manufacturing company results in: 

  • $333,900 worth of tax revenue 
  • $985,000 worth of value-additions
  • $95,000 worth of welfare benefits 

Compliant to Australian Standards

Australia has some of the strictest compliance, quality, and safety standards in the world. When you buy an Australian-Made product, you can be assured that the product has been manufactured from quality resources with fair wages and safety standards applied on the employees who manufactured the product.

Quicker Service and Support

Many companies import their parts offshore because it's cheaper - but unfortunately, this makes them difficult to replace or repair when things go wrong. Under Australian Consumer Law, when you buy an Australian made product, it comes with an automatic guarantee that it will work and do its intended purpose.

Endurequip Portalift Hoist is the only Australian made heavy vehicle hoist designed and manufactured in Brisbane with an Australia-wide service support system. The meticulous attention to detail, coupled with a quality build, is the only way we can live up to the rigorous standards required by the Australian-Made logo. Feel free to drop into our manufacturing facility in Brisbane or call us for additional information on the quality of our Australian made Portalifts! 


Why Buy Local?

Australians love to support each other and are always ready to offer a hand during a challenge or disaster. The above-mentioned research has also uncovered the fact that Australians increase buying from local businesses after bush fires and floods. So, why should you buy local?

Give a much-needed boost to the local economy

When you buy a locally made product, you put your money back into the local community. This means you are contributing to the economy of the local community and keeping the funds in Australia instead of overseas. 

We have over 85 local jobs at RUD in Brisbane, the parent company of Endurequip. By purchasing Endurequip Hoists and Accessories, you support a local workforce.

As per the Australian-Made website, every $1,000,000 generated by an Australian manufacturing company results in 10 full-time jobs, which means you are supporting local job creation as well.

Quality Assurance

Buying local gives you peace of mind because you know where your products come from, the materials and the standards required to manufacture these products, and whom to contact should you require help, support, or advice.

We stand behind the quality of our product every day of the year and will go the extra mile to support you nationwide.

Ongoing Local Service and Support

Because local companies can be reached faster, it is easier to get quick service and support when something goes wrong instead of waiting for qualified technicians or parts to arrive from overseas.

Endurequip Portalift Hoists are designed and manufactured in Brisbane, so every time you purchase one of our hoists, your money goes straight back to the local economy. We use local businesses at every stage of production, from our local qualified engineers to local electrical suppliers to a local powder coating company. By keeping supply and production local, we can assure quality control in every step of the design, engineering, and manufacturing process. 

Since we source our parts locally, we can get them to you quickly if you need a replacement. Our local authorised service agents are always on hand to help keep your business running smoothly. 

We do not just use local companies to manufacture our products. We supply to them too and help keep the local transport industry running in the process.

Some of our local partners include:

  • Volvo Commercial Vehicles in Wacol, Queensland
  • Dan’s Truck Detailing in Wacol, Queensland
  • The Australian Defence Forces (ADF)

Without Trucks Australia Stops. But when trucks need to go, Endurequip keeps them going!
