Australian Makers

Go ‘behind the scenes’ into factories, workshops and farms around the country to hear Australian Makers share their unique stories.

CNH Industrial Australia

Meet the team from CNH Industrial Australia, proud manufacturers of Australia’s most respected agricultural equipment manufacturers, the K-Line Ag and Horwood Bagshaw.

Equipping Australian farmers with world-class machinery has been the enduring passion and proud endeavour driving the success of K-Line Ag and Horwood Bagshaw. Both businesses recently came under the stewardship of global agricultural and industry manufacturer CNH Industrial, yet remain firmly entrenched as local manufacturers and employers, delivering robust economic benefits to the rural communities in which they operate.

K-Line Ag was founded in 1993 and has become a trusted market leader in agricultural machinery. Engineered and built in Cowra, New South Wales, K-Line Ag’s products are designed, tested and refined in cooperation with local farmers to excel and adapt under the harshest of conditions.

Their market-leading tillage products, in particular, drive strong international demand, especially in North America, where K-Line Ag’s products are sold under the Case IH brand, generating valuable export income.

Horwood Bagshaw counts itself as one of Australia’s oldest agricultural machinery manufacturers; yet in 2022, its cutting-edge products are designed to meet the needs of Australian farmers, also gaining a strong international following. Established in 1838 and based in Mannum, South Australia, since 1975, it has gained a strong following for its reliable, durable and resalable products, combined with quality systems and expert after-sales support.

Both companies embody the philosophy of the parent company CNH Industrial to leverage the extensive local knowledge that comes from living and working in the farming communities their products are created to serve. This rapport, and a deep understanding of the needs of Australian farmers and rural communities, continues to empower their success.

Snooza Pet Products

Meet Brigitte Knight, animal lover and Marketing Manager at Snooza Pet Products. Snooza is an Australian manufacturer of designer pet care and comfort products that help ensure a pawfect night’s sleep for Australia’s beloved dogs and cats.

An Australian family business, they have been operating in Melbourne’s Bayside suburbs for over 30 years, providing sleep stations for pets that are crafted to be both stylish in the home and functional for pets in all shapes and sizes. Brigitte says, “From Chihuahuas to Great Danes, we manufacture a product that suits every single one of them.”

Sustainability is core to Snooza Pet Products’ values. All beds are made to be durable and washable. The company only sources Australian steel for its raised beds, uses recycled drink bottles blended with Australian Made foam crumb for bedding fibre fill, and offers a repair and re-homing service that helps promote longevity and limit landfill at end-of-life. The Snooza Head Office is even built from a recycled fit-out to lighten its touch on the planet.

All Snooza staff are pet parents themselves, which means they appreciate the important role pets play in Australian families and have an intimate understanding of how to craft bedding and accessories that keep pets happy, comfortable and relaxed.

Brigitte states the Australian Made logo is the easiest way to highlight Snooza’s Aussie credentials.

“It’s easy to find a koala or flag emblem to use on our products, but it doesn’t hold the same significance and reputation as using the Australian Made logo. We find that it’s the fastest way for a customer to identify that it’s a genuine Australian Made product.”

Wynstan

PROK

Meet Wade Guelfi, General Manager WA at PROK Conveyor Components Pty Ltd – a global conveyor components manufacturer with a long history of manufacturing quality conveyor components that are today recognised as the industry standard in Australia and overseas. PROK designs and builds components locally in Australia, found in most mines, ports and other large bulk material handling applications.

PROK has pioneered the development of quality conveyor pulleys and idlers in the Australasian market and is incredibly proud of its continued support of local Australian industry and local manufacturing whilst growing its brand globally. Today PROK is considered the largest manufacturer of quality conveyor products globally.

The PROK offering includes components with an emphasis on performance and reliability for light, medium and heavy-duty applications across the full range of PROK conveyor rollers, idlers, pulleys, and conveyor accessories.

PROK HDPE avoids secondary conveyor damage in the event of a failure, reduces the need for unscheduled downtime that costs mining companies millions of dollars in lost productivity annually and features an iconically Aussie yellow and green wear indicator technology.

Wade says: “We’re a really proud Australian manufacturer. We really stand behind our brand and partner with the Australian Made logo and see how well that’s received. Not just in the mining market but in Australia per se, we saw that as a distinct advantage that complements our brand”.

Summer Land Camels

A story of one man and his favourite camel, Remi. Meet Paul Martin, Director of Queensland’s, Summer Land Camels. In 2015, after a long career in stock and cattle management, Paul discovered a new passion for a breed that is often forgotten and most frequently found deep within the country’s red centre.

They say innovation is the ability to see change as an opportunity. Today, Paul has rescued more than 500 wild camels from being put down in central Australia and has re-homed the docile creatures at his farm just south of Brisbane.

“There is a special line of camels that really are like Labradors, they want to come up and put their head on your shoulder. They are such a gentle, gentle animals and they seem to find a home here at Summer Land,” Paul said.

While it’s a little known fact that wild camels like Remi are gentle and placid creatures… one other fact about Summer Land Camels that is turning heads all around the country and in overseas markets is that natural Australian camel milk is also a rich resource with medicinal benefits.

From farm crafted camel milk moisturiser, lip balm and soap that is kind on sensitive skin. To dry milk powder, ice-cream, cheese and even camel milk infused vodka that’s winning awards and gaining traction in overseas markets.

Paul and his team are proudly “shining a light on the camel” and have renewed a sense of appreciation for these gentle creatures and his range of regenerative and ethically produced Australian camel milk products.

Paul says the best way to communicate the authenticity of his unique and genuine Australian crafted range is with the iconic Australian Made logo.

“For us the Australian Made logo with the kangaroo you know says it all. That and Crocodile Dundee are the two things that resonate around the world and that really say Australian Made.”
