Local manufacturing is an integral part of Solidteknics' mission, and has always been a non-negotiable for us. Whilst Australia’s high labour costs make it significantly more expensive to manufacture locally, our mission is far bigger and more important than just turning a profit.
Here are just some of the reasons why we will always choose to keep our manufacturing in Australia.
Creating jobs for Australians
It gives us a great sense of pride and purpose that we’re helping keep Australians employed in skilled and fairly-paid jobs. Not only through direct employment, but indirectly by sourcing local materials where possible, and using local services including print, design and packaging. As our business grows, new jobs are created. This is more important than ever, with many Australians left suddenly unemployed due to Covid-19.
It’s all about the innovation and quality
At Solidteknics, we only develop and manufacture products that we believe are the best of their kind in the world - not only in performance, but in health, sustainability, and durability - all while remaining competitive in price. That’s a pretty high bar to set for local manufacturing, but the only way to compete with the tide of low cost imports. Working closely with our manufacturing team means we can ensure every product that goes out the door and into our customers’ hands, meets this standard.
Better for the planet
We believe in an ethical and environmentally conscious approach to manufacturing and consumption. Opting to manufacture locally helps us keep our carbon footprint low. Our products are also sustainable - built to last and be passed down through generations, saving literally millions of disposable pans from piling up in landfills.
Local customer support
Our highly skilled team is based locally, enabling us to offer efficient, expert and personalised service to our customers. We’re not only renowned for our world class cookware, but also our world-class customer care!
All of this, whilst keeping our pricing fair and competitive
Our products are an investment. They’re competitive with many imported brands, but streaks ahead in terms of durability, health and performance. Cheap, synthetic-coated pans may be lighter on your wallet at checkout, but they have huge long-term health and environmental costs.
Buy well, and you’ll only ever have to buy once. A one-time investment in a piece of cookware that’s locally made and will last generations, is the best value of all.
The pandemic has put a spotlight on the importance of local manufacturing. As the only production cookware made in Australia, it has been inspiring to see Australians voting with their wallets by supporting locals. We hope more businesses will join us in reviving Australia’s dormant manufacturing sector through world-leading innovation, and build long term, positive change for a more sustainable, self-sufficient Australia.
Thank you for supporting our vision for a healthy and sustainable cookware future!
