In recent months there have been reports of substantial pressure on the Australian building industry, from record housing starts as reported by the HIA to raw and finished materials shortages nationwide.
Headlines this month include disruptions with container arrivals, adding further stress to businesses waiting on imports.
We recognise the strain these conditions can have on your business. The team at Galintel are ramping up local production hours and working to ensure continuity of supply to support the ongoing needs of our customers.
Increasing Labour Hours
Our Australian Made Solid Base Angle and Traditional T-Bar are experiencing record demand. We’ve put additional shifts and team members in place in our manufacturing facility in Coffs Harbour to increase the output of locally manufactured products. To ensure good stock levels throughout the market we recommend forward planning and coordinating your needs with your Galintel Representative.
Teams across our distribution centres are also increasing daily order intake and weekly despatch routes to accommodate speedy processing. To ensure no delays in order processing we recommend supplying your orders in advance so our team can schedule to meet your deadlines.
Our hybrid supply chain allows flexibility in product options to better serve the needs of your business. Our facility in Coffs Harbour can accommodate large volumes of locally made Solid Base Angle and Traditional T-Bar in all variant sizes. If you’re forward planning for large project works, reach out to your Galintel Representative in regards to our local product options. Truckload orders can be placed and scheduled in advance to guarantee supply.
