Ball & Doggett showcases Australia Made brands
To mark Australian Made week, Ball & Doggett is showcasing the stories behind Australian made brands Doggett Labels, Envirocore Board, Shark Skin, Claycote, D Board Plus, Botany, Jiffy and Apmil.
According to research by Roy Morgan, 89 per cent of Australians believe more manufacturing should be undertaken in Australia. This was highlighted during the Covid-19 pandemic, evidenced by the changing buying habits of businesses and consumers.
Ball & Doggett says it is proud to be associated with local manufacturers and recognises that having goods locally produced means that it helps keep jobs in Australia and avoid supply chain ‘noise’ associated with products sourced overseas.
Doggett Labels are “proudly “made onsite at Braeside, Victoria. The pre-cut labels are available in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be used for all label applications and purposes. Additionally Doggett Labels can be customised to suit specific needs, are converted and shipped in a timely manner, says the company.
“Envirocore Board, Claycote and Shark Skin all carry great Australian ‘manufacturing’ stories for the sign, display & digital market and we are pleased to partner with local manufactures to keep jobs in Australia,” said Rob Brussolo, GM – Sign, Display & Digital, Ball & Doggett.
Envirocore Board is a fully recyclable rigid substrate made from reusable, renewable and 100 per cent recyclable paper, produced by a family run business in Lithgow, NSW. The family had a vision to create a substrate that was environmentally sustainable and to help customers meet and exceed their environmental impact reduction goals.
“We have seen Envirocore Board grow from strength to strength since the product's launch and it is attributed to the quality of materials used, fabrication and the relationship we foster with our supply partners to build and refine media to meet customers’ demands,” said Brussolo.
Shark Skin wet strength board is the “perfect solution” for humid and wet environments. Its wet strength characteristics reduce the risk of the board bowing and warping in challenging environments, says Ball & Doggett
Shark Skin Wet Strength Board and Shark Skin Outdoor Display Board is a collaboration between Ball & Doggett and a local manufacturer in Victoria. Both products are 100 per cent recyclable and bridge the gap between sustainability and cost effectiveness.
Australia Made week runs from 6 to 12 June.
