7 Reasons You Should Be Buying Australian Made Products

We live in a digital age where the world is seemingly at our fingertips. A quick web search can see us browsing the catalogue of a store in London’s High Street, before clicking over to a boutique in trendy NYC…. But what about the stores in our own postcode?

Whilst international products are so readily available, Australian made products are still a smarter choice. But what makes them so great?

1. Support the Australian Economy

When purchasing Australian made products, you are keeping your money within Australia; generating more income for the national economy by supporting local jobs, businesses and industries.

Research published by the Industry Capability network shows that for every $1 million of new or retained manufacturing business in Australia, the following effects flow through the economy:

$713,400 worth of gross value added generated
$225,300 worth of tax revenue generated
$64,900 worth of welfare benefits saved
6 full time jobs created

2. Made to Australian Standards

Australia requires businesses to meet some of the world’s strictest labour, business, safety and quality control standards. Because of this, when you buy Australian-made products, you know you are contributing to a business that;

Provides well crafted top-tier goods
Treats and pays their workers fairly

Uses high quality resources and materials

3. Warranty Guarantees + Easier Service Options

Australian made products come with automatic guarantees that protect you from common product pitfalls and risks. Under the Australian Consumer Law, when you buy any product or service, they come with an automatic guarantee that they will work and do what you asked for.

In addition to this, many Australian companies also offer further warranties and guarantees on their products.

At Crown Furniture, they offer a 10-year structural warranty on all of our manufactured furniture, with a 3-year structural warranty on all outdoor furniture.

4. Better Lead Times and Lower Delivery Costs

Geographical proximity means that you can receive items faster in most cases than ordering the same product produced overseas.

Not only are you saving time – you are also saving money. Domestic shipping rates are significantly cheaper than overseas shipping whilst taking less time and using less energy.

5. Improved Customisation and Customer Service​

At Crown Furniture, producing furniture at their factory in Emu Plains NSW enables them to incorporate any specific requirements to suit customer needs. If you require custom products or finishes, they are able to meet those needs promptly and efficiently, with their friendly team always available to answer your questions.

6. For Environmental Sustainability

In addition to adhering to strict labour, business, safety and quality control standards, Australian businesses must also follow stringent environmental guidelines and policies.

Australian agricultural businesses operate under some of the strictest environmental controls in the world, with Australia’s most recent “State of the Environment” report noting that substantial improvements have been made to land management and the manufacturing process in Australia.

Buying Australian made products also helps to reduce the energy consumption used to transport products, which in turn reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

With Australian products being made to higher standards, they’re also more likely to last longer with local repair options available – resulting in a greater return on investment and less products ending up in landfill.

7. Assist in COVID-19 Recovery​

It’s no secret that COVID-19 has changed the way we all live our day-to-day lives, but how can buying Australian-made products assist in Australia’s recovery?

In addition to the above benefits, purchasing Australian made products supports the economy at every level – from creating jobs and allowing Australians to return to their previous jobs to supporting farmers, suppliers and local businesses, increasing tax revenue, reducing the cost of welfare and so much more.

By supporting Australian businesses, we’re also supporting the people around us and helping Australia recover from the economic and social impacts of COVID-19 faster.
