Why Buy Australian Made Window Coverings?

As a consumer, you always have a choice in the type of product you buy. You can choose to give your money to whomever you like based on your own values and desires. While you may initially be drawn to products that are produced abroad, and are therefore cheaper, it is important to take a step back and think about the consequences behind buying products that aren’t made in Australian. Better yet, let’s take a look at the benefits.

At Modern Blinds, we sell a range of Australian-made shutters and blinds, many of which are made right here in Queensland. We service Brisbane and the Gold Coast and want our customers and our neighbours to understand why we choose to buy Australian-made, and why you should, too. 

Support Locally Manufactured Businesses

It’s much easier to form an emotional and commercial connection to products that are made at home by someone like you. But did you know that it’s also good for Australia, and by association, good for you? A recent study published by the Industry Capability Network demonstrates that for every $1 million of new or retained manufacturing businesses in Australia, there is $333,900 worth of tax revenue generated, among other benefits. 

Trusted Quality of Goods

When something is made to Australian standards of quality, you can trust that you’re getting the best of the best. Most, if not all, Australian products come with comprehensive warranties, so you know that you’re protected and ensured the best quality. Our Vogue Shutters – made in Queensland for example, are backed by our 20-year warranty.

In addition, you’ll find that when you buy Aussie-made, the people you purchase goods from will have a better knowledge of their products. After all, these retailers are more likely to have a relationship with the people who made the product. Local Australian manufacturers often take the time to get to know their customers too. 

Good for Community

When you purchase Australian-made products, your purchasing behaviour as a consumer directly affects local employment, economic development and prosperity. You can rest assured that you’re helping to keep your friends, your family and your community happily employed when you buy Australian made.

Better for the Environment

If you are purchasing locally, you can be sure that the company you’re buying from is also purchasing locally, which means less transportation and less environmental impact. You will contribute less to the urban sprawl, congestion, loss of habitat and especially pollution.
