More about Export Southland
This year, we’ve begun exporting our custom polyurethane handles to the Bell Bay smelter in Tasmania. Because they are non-conductive, they use them on the tools that sample the molten aluminium. In addition, urethane’s shock-absorbing qualities make our handles ideal for manipulating the long, heavy tools that remove ‘crud’ from the pots.
More later about our urethane range.
In the ‘export’ space, you could also count F-I assisting companies who export locally-made products, such as manufacturing composite parts for Stabicraft and foam-filling their buoyancy pontoons. In addition, we’ve helped food exporters such as Fonterra, Blue River Dairy and Alliance by maintaining and improving their production facilities.
