Rondo Awarded Green and Gold with the Help of Australian Made
29 January 2021
Rondo Building Services Pty Ltd joins forces with the Australian Made Campaign (AMCL), promoting the Australian manufacturing and construction industry and continuing its support by operating in Australia.
As Australia’s leading manufacturer and supplier of a wide range of light gauge rolled formed steel products and systems, Rondo prides itself on delivering innovative and high-quality solutions.
Australian Made Chief Executive, Ben Lazzaro, said, “Australia’s building industry produces some of the highest quality products and employs thousands of Australians throughout the supply chain. There is a huge appetite out there for Australian products, with country of origin increasingly playing an important part in purchasing decisions. Recent Roy Morgan research found that 68% of Australians have a preference for Australian-made building and renovation products.
Aussie products are made to some of the highest standards in the world. They are trusted and known for their safety and quality. At the same time, when you buy Australian you are pumping money back into the economy, which helps to keep Aussie jobs, strengthen local industries and supports local communities.”
Rondo started from humble beginnings with founder Eric Cuckson developing a thermal aluminium foil “Rondo Foil” ceiling system to reduce the heat from the factory roof and improve employee working conditions in the St Marys, NSW based zipper factory. A decade later, Cuckson manufactured a concealed ceiling system and this became a catalyst for the company we know today.
The creation of a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Erskine Park, NSW has allowed Rondo to foster a manufacturing environment that promotes high-volumes, innovation and job creation. Rondo utilises its manufacturing technology with the production of their products and systems, enabling the production of large customer orders quickly and efficiently.
Rondo’s success is a reflection of the quality and dedication of its staff. During the COVID-19 pandemic Rondo retained all permanent employees and will endeavour to keep all its employees despite the conditions the pandemic has created. Rondo currently employs 300 staff members across 5 States Australia wide and hope to grow this number in the foreseeable future.
Rondo’s Executive General Manager, Greg Thomas, said “Rondo Building Services Pty. Ltd. is proud to be associated with the Australia Made Campaign in highlighting the importance of the promotion and support of local manufacturers and their products.
Australia now, more than ever, needs to support and grow local manufacturing capability. We must reduce our reliance on overseas imported products to ensure a strong and sustainable Australian Manufacturing Sector and economy into the future.
Rondo Building Services are committed to continuing to grow and diversify our operations across Australia, as we have proudly done for more than 56 years, to preserve and strengthen Australian Manufacturing and to best serve the ever changing needs of our customers and the Australian Building and Construction Industry.”
Rondo was built on a reputation of trust and excellence by going to great lengths to meet customer needs, providing both design and onsite technical support. This has given Rondo the opportunity to be involved in a number of distinguished Australian projects such as the iconic Sydney Opera House, Barangaroo Towers, Parliament House, Eureka Tower, Q1, Perth Stadium, South Australian Health & Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) and some of the country’s largest and most advanced hospitals, including but not limited to; New Royal Adelaide Hospital, Westmead Hospital, Gold Coast University Hospital, Royal Children’s Hospital and Fiona Stanley Hospital.
Rondo has proudly been manufacturing its products and systems in Australia for over 50 years, happily supporting local businesses and jobs in all communities in which it operates.
