Rich Cropley, CEO of legendary outdoor adventure company, Rhino-Rack, is proud to announce their eligibility to use the iconic Australian Made logo on many of their cross bar roof rack product range.
“We are truly Australian owned, operated and now officially Australian Made on many of our products. We are proud to now be donning the renowned green and gold Australian Made logo.” said Rich. This translates to jobs for Aussies, skill development for locals, and a team that Richard calls family at their Eastern Creek warehouse.
Australian Made Chief Executive, Ben Lazzaro, said “The Australian Made logo is the true mark of Aussie authenticity. It’s exciting to see many items in Rhino-Rack’s cross bar roof rack range carrying the iconic green and gold kangaroo.
Aussie products are made to some of the highest standards in the world. They are trusted and known for their safety and quality. When you buy Australian you are also helping to pump money back into our economy, which helps to keep Aussie jobs, strengthen local industries and supports local communities.”
The Rhino-Rack family are not the only locals benefiting from the partnership. Sydney manufacturer, Laser Wizard, sells components to Rhino-Rack, helping them deliver their locally produced products. CEO, Lawrence Thomson said, “without companies like Rhino-Rack supporting local businesses, we wouldn’t be able to continue to develop and grow the standard of our manufacturing, or stay in business at all.”
And Rich agrees. “We’ve got to help get everyone back to work, but we also need to think about developing our own skills and industry here in Australia, so we’ve got a robust Australian manufacturing industry that’s got jobs for Aussies in the future”.
