About the Industry Partner

The Industry Partner has manufacturing capabilities in both its main headquarters and in local branches across Australia. The advantage of this local manufacture is fast lead times and flexibility to make non-standard products as required. The warehousing operations in each branch maintain stock of the high-demand filter products such as standard-size panel filters, replacement filter bags and standard HEPA filters. These 'ex-stock' inventories in each branch are based around the filtration needs of the local area. The high-efficiency filters, filter modules and large filtration units are manufactured in the Head Office factory in Sydney NSW. All design, engineering & manufacturing functions of the Industry Partner operate to a standard set of operating procedures and quality-assurance policy that is centrally managed and regularly audited.
