As the Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council (AFAC) finished it’s 2012 conference in Perth, we touch base with our distributor, Integrated Emergency and Industrial Equipment Solutions, to find out what’s the news down under.
“We had a good show,” confirms Bruce Elliott, Managing Director of Integrated. “Allowing us to speak to a number of new body-builders in Western Australia and catch up with current customers who are also exhibiting.”
As a conference AFAC attracts Fire Chiefs and Fire services from across Australia and aims to bring industry ‘Thought Leaders’, manufacturers and suppliers together. Intersected with talks and key note speakers, discussing everything from forest fire risk assessments, temporary flood barriers through to legal changes in the industry, AFAC is considered to be one of the largest and most significant shows in Australia.
“In many ways Western builders tend to work locally,” adds Bruce, “and breaking into this area has been our aim over last four years of exhibiting at the show. Thankfully we’re seeing our efforts being repaid with more and more orders coming from Western Australia.”
With a fully integrated stock program of heavy duty slides and linear rails now running between Chambrelan UK and Australia and with new products being launched to the Australian market all the time it seems Chambrelan heavy duty slides are turning many heads.
“We’ve had a lot of interest this year for Chambrelan’s Slide and Tilt system and we’re speaking to new customers all the time who are trialing and protyping from the range,” says Bruce. “Also I’d like to say a quick word of thanks to some of our customers who took the time to visit the stand, especially the guys from Mills Tui, Varley, SEM Fire and Rescue and Quickcorp, it was great to see you, we’ll be in touch. Also a quick word of welcome to some new customers, WA Fire Appliances, PWR and Frontline!”
Integrated Emergency and Industrial equipmet will be back at AFAC next year in Melbourne, as well as exhibiting at National Manufacturing Week 2013 which is also in Melbourne and we will also be attending AIMEX in October, in Sydney.
