After being nominated amongst a field of prestigious competition, Safetech was announced as manufacturer of the year in the medium business category at this year’s Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards.
To receive this honour from our peers is especially rewarding. The Victorian Manufacturing Awards are judged by people involved in manufacturing and the winners are companies that have demonstrated sustained excellence in performance. It’s a bit like winning the players award in AFL or NRL.
The night is attended by manufacturers, manufacturing consultants and the government agencies associated with business development – all work in manufacturing and understand the challenges, the global competitiveness and what it takes to succeed in manufacturing.
Virginia Trioli hosted and our award for Best Manufacturer – medium sized business – was one of the 3 major awards – Best Small, Medium and Large Manufacturer. We were thrilled to simply be a finalist and I thought that would be it. To win was a wonderful surprise and made for a very exciting night.
It’s a team win – this award recognises the engineering and manufacturing excellence of Safetech over many years. Our focus on customers and delivering the best, most innovative products and supporting them after the sale is at the heart of our success.
Another quality Mobile Elevated Work Platforms by Safetech
We have some big news coming up at Safetech. While we cannot say what it is exactly, what we can tell you is that it centers around one of the most sophisticated Mobile EWPs we have ever built.
But as an appetiser, check out this clever Service MEWP built for O’Brien AutoGlass.
Built to aid in the replacement and maintenance the windscreens of buses and trucks. Working up high on a stable, durable and ergonomic platform has really helped the team improve efficiency and safety.
A flap on the left side of the truck folds down allowing the technicians to get right up close to the vehicle in question.
A range of platform mounted supports and mounts provide workers with all they need to work at the elevated level without coming down for additional tools or components.
The best designs elements are often the ones you cannot see. At Safetech we are proud of the way this scissor lift platform and all its mechanisms tie-in seamlessly with the rest of the truck.

FRM installed Freight Mate is a critical link for Buckby Motors in Tasmania
A custom Freight Mate in Buckby Motor’s Galvin Street facility is being utilized to facilitate the 2 levels of their refurbished service centre.
With customers, service and spare parts sales at the upper level and deliveries at the lower level the Freight Mate forms a vital link in transporting all spare parts within the facility.
Buckby’s service manager Nathan Wooley said they had given it a solid workout with full pallets of goods beyond 1000kg and it has handled it all with ease.
Safetech’s distributor in Tasmania handled the Freight Mate specification, installation and after sales support, with this 4600mm Freight Mate being installed in 3 pieces from the lower level.
With branches in Devonport, Launceston and Hobart FRM provide a great support and coverage for Safetech products in the apple isle.
In addition to the Freight Mate installation, the new Buckby site also had an existing Tieman Scissor hoist (now part of Safetech’s product line). FRM were commissioned to relocate and repurpose this existing scissor to the new Buckby’s parts receiving department on the lower level.
Our installation team showcase how Safetech’s expertise and talent can overcome the greatest of challenges.
Both the patient transport lift at the Epworth Hospital and this Dock Hoist at Bexley North presented very challenging site conditions and accessibility restrictions.
Tight corridors and small openings made installation difficult for both projects. But through the work of our talented Installation Engineers and our on-site techs, we were able to come up with solutions to get the jobs done efficiently.
Epworth Hospital Patient Lift
For the Epworth Hospital patient lift, a crane was used to get the lift close to the opening, but then we used a custom Gorbel monorail system to slide the platform into place.
Ergonomics were considered to ensure a smooth installation without risk of injury to the team.
Bexley North Goods Hoist
Bexley North was a unique challenge. The narrow street and small doorway meant only smaller vehicles and forklifts could be used during the install, so larger cranes could not be used to remove the existing Dock Hoist or insert the new Safetech Hoist.
To overcome this, the existing table was cut down into manageable pieces for removal. For the new replacement, our skilled Engineers designed a platform that consists of 3 manageable pieces, that can be assembled in position without compromising its load capacity or structural integrity.
If you have a complex site and everyone else has said they can’t help. Give us a call, because chances are, we can!
In late November, ifm’s German headquarters sent out their professional film crew to capture what it meant for them to be present in Australia.
As a part of the production, Safetech were happy to host the crew and be part of their story.
Our very own Technical Director Bruce Cox and Electrical Engineer David Burleigh jumped in front of the lens, providing an insight into how Ifm’s product range assist with our own innovations and product developments.
