According to research by Roy Morgan, 89% of Australians believe more manufacturing should be undertaken in Australia. This was highlighted during the COVID 19 pandemic, evidenced by the changing buying habits of businesses and consumers.

Ball & Doggett are proud to be associated with local manufactures and recognise that having goods locally produced means we keep jobs in Australia and avoid supply chain ‘noise’ associated with products sourced overseas.

Australian Made week (Monday 6th to Sunday 12th June) is an opportunity for Ball & Doggett to showcase the amazing stories behind Australian made brands like; Doggett Labels, Envirocore Board, Shark Skin, Claycote, Crocodile Board, Koala Kraft, D Board Plus, Botany, Jiffy and Apmil.

Doggett Labels are proudly made onsite at Braeside, Victoria. The pre-cut labels are available in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be used for all label applications and purposes. Additionally Doggett Labels can be customised to suit specific needs, are converted and shipped in a timely manner.

Envirocore Board is produced by a family run business in Lithgow, NSW. The family had a vision to create a substrate that was environmentally sustainable and to help customers meet and exceed their environmental impact reduction goals. Envirocore Board is a fully recyclable rigid substrate made from re-useable, renewable and 100% recyclable paper.

“We have seen Envirocore Board grow from strength to strength since the products launch and it is attributed to the quality of materials used, fabrication and the relationship we foster with our supply partners to build and refine medias to meet customers’ demands” said Rob Brussolo, General Manager – Sign, Display & Digital, Ball & Doggett.

Shark Skin Wet Strength Board and Shark Skin Outdoor Display Board is a collaboration between Ball & Doggett and a local manufacturer in Victoria. Both products are 100% recyclable and bridges the gap between sustainability and cost effectiveness.

Shark Skin wet strength board is the perfect solution for humid and wet environments, its wet strength characteristics reduce the risk of the board bowing and warping in challenging environments.

“Envirocore Board, Claycote and Shark Skin all carry great Australian ‘manufacturing’ stories for the sign, display & digital market and we are pleased to partner with local manufactures to keep jobs in Australia” said Rob Brussolo.
