Manufacturing excellence, state of the art technology, and providing robust, value for money and effective products to be used in a myriad of industries and applications is the challenge set by Blackwoods to its suppliers.
Within each category outstanding examples of leading edge technology or just great value for money options abound.
Whether it is driven by the need of the market, a new and innovative application or the desire for Blackwoods to satisfy "All Your Workplace Needs" the breadth of Blackwoods offer continues to expand providing opportunities for customers to access products made by Australia's, the Region's and the World's premier manufacturers.
Customers can be assured that suppliers to the Blackwoods organisation meet the highest level of expectations for not only manufacturing competence, reliability and supply chain excellence but also for the environment and for their workforce.
Blackwoods history and that of our customers is littered with numerous examples of the outstanding collaboration where solutions or now standard products were borne from a single need which was developed and then manufactured to become part of the range.
Throughout Australia, Blackwoods' suppliers allocate precious resources to train and complete field work support to ensure that not only the Blackwoods team is fully aware of the features and benefits of products, but also that customers have a high level of comfort where technical expertise or perhaps even Safety and Environmental concerns need to be met.
You may meet the Blackwoods suppliers at your premises when they visit with our team, or at one of the many Industry Trade Fairs and Exhibitions we attend together however one thing is certain, Blackwoods and their suppliers are each committed to delivering on our promise of first class products, service and support.
Interestingly not all those wishing to have Blackwoods represent their products are successful, suppliers need to share the philosophy and vision of the Blackwoods business and it's people, this desire to link with only those suppliers that can add value for customers dealing with Blackwoods has survived the test of time, in fact some of our suppliers just like our customers have been with us since the very beginning.
