STATE FURNITURE SUPPLIES P/L is a wholly owned Australian company whose policy is to buy quality Australian products from reputable manufacturers who comply with high ethical standards in regards to Occupational Health and Safety, Environmental Controls and Fair Wages and Conditions.
Sadly many imported products do not meet these standards particularly with regard to product quality and environmental safety.
Some imported fibre boards used to manufacture desks and tables etc. contain dangerous levels of formaldehyde and off gassing adhesives as well as wood chips sourced from illegal harvesting.
Our suppliers only use Laminex board which is made in Australia and is subject to strict limits on harmful agents.
We appreciate that schools budgets are strained to the limit and often imports seem to offer real savings but at what cost?
The economy needs jobs to be created in Australia to provide your pupils with a future. Manufacturing is vital to this country but so much capacity is now being exported that its future, particularly for small highly efficient companies is bleak. For the sake of the future and the environment, we ask you to consider us when planning furniture purchases, you and your students will receive a lot back for your support.
