Davey Water Products adopts Australian Made logo
Davey Water Products, the wholly owned subsidiary of the Australian public company GUD Holdings, has been a firmly established Australian manufacturer of pumping and water solutions for over seventy five years. With more than seventy percent of the extensive Davey product range locally manufactured at the company’s Melbourne facilities, Davey has recently been inducted into the Australian Made Australian Grown industry support program.
Davey’s General Manager Marketing Colin Nash says that Davey is proud to manufacture many of its products in Australia and undertakes all its product research and development locally. Davey sees Made in Australia as a clear signal of its manufacturing excellence, quality control and environmental standards. Davey is a lean manufacturer and has recently achieved the key environmental standard ISO14001 for its Melbourne manufacturing centre.
“We employ over 200 people directly at our Scoresby manufacturing centre and also support significant local parts and components suppliers.
“Davey is not only a market leader in Australia but is an extensive exporter, particularly to the Middle East, the USA and the Asia Pacific region.
“Davey is renowned locally and overseas for its innovation and dependability.
“Our FireFighter® range is Australia’s most popular and trusted pump to protect homes in danger.
“Local patents created the unique RainBank® rain water system and our Melbourne engineers have won design awards for the Silensor® pool pump.
“In house R&D enables Davey to quickly adapt to needs of consumers as highlighted by the recently launched LeafWIZARD® pool cleaner.
“Joining the Australian Made campaign highlights our commitment to supporting local industry but helps consumers know our products are produced by quality methods and always with the environment in mind.
“Our unique understanding and ability to respond to Australia’s conditions of climate and tough terrain gives Davey branded products unique recognition as consumers locally and internationally have confidence in our solutions.” Colin Nash says. In presenting Davey CEO Carsten Andersen with a certificate recognising Davey’s participation Ian Harrison Chief Executive of Australian Made Australian Grown noted “we are delighted to welcome Davey Water Products as a licensed user of the Australian Made logo.
“Local manufacturing plays a vital role in our nation’s economy so it is tremendous to see Davey Water Products utilising the famous green and gold symbol to emphasise that its goods are Australian.”
”The Davey brand will now represent what we believe Australia Made represents; global quality, good value, high standards and clean and green. It will give consumers and business partners assurance of Davey’s dependability and that they can buy with confidence.”
