What is the difference between Australian Made and Australian Owned?

There is a definitive difference between Australian Made and Australian Owned. This applies to both the company as well as the end product.

There are many manufacturers in Australia that can claim to be an Australian owned company but some or all their products are sourced internationally. So too, there are a multitude of companies producing Australian made products but are owned either in part or wholly by international investors. Either way, this means your dollar is heading overseas rather than supporting Australian manufacturing.

Meridian can proudly claim both – we source 100% of our raw product within Australia and our company is locally owned and operated. All of our products are made locally within our Brisbane factory.

Why Support Local?

Many international plastic manufacturers produce an inferior product. Quality is sacrificed and working conditions below par to keep costs down.

Australian standards mean that when you purchase a locally manufactured product, you can be assured of a high standard and consistent product as well as being guaranteed that any employees are treated well and paid appropriately. As a local company, we are better placed t o understand the local market and what works across the industries we service.

Supporting a locally owned and operated company such as Meridian means more than just supporting the one company. There is a direct flow on effect to the local economy which stretches from our employees to raw material suppliers, delivery drivers, marketing experts, equipment technicians and much more.

How Can You Be Guaranteed of Australian Made and Australian Owned?
