Here at Barn Light Australia, we love manufacturing. It all starts with raw materials, determination and the application of craftsmanship. We gain a great deal of satisfaction and pride in the products we make. We love manufacturing, or most will call it “craftsmanship” – no imported junk here!
As a licencee of the iconic Green & Gold Kangaroo (The Australian Made Campaign) – A large number of products we carry are Australian Made. We’ve decided to only use the Australian Made logo where we exceed 70% of Australian content to make it easier for our customers to believe in our products just as much as we do.
Unlike many other lighting retailers, we’re proudly Australian-owned. More importantly, we’re also working towards being fully Australian-made. It might not seem all that unique but rarely do other Australian lighting companies make their own product. Barn Light Australia is among the ones that do. We’ve recently received a little certificate that says we can legitimately indicate Australian made product. Imagine what could be possible in terms of design, efficiency, and true affordability if other manufacturers followed suit?
For those who can’t believe it is truly Australian Made –
We purchase spun metal shades from our metalspinner in Clayton South using our US supplied shade molds.
We organise our powdercoating in Dandenong North who uses Dulux Powdercoatings.
Aluminium for use in our Gooseneck Arms is purchased from Capral & Action Aluminium.
We thread and bend these goosenecks prior to finishing using our own machinerey in-house.
Adjacent to us is a full automotive downdraft spraybooth for use in our Wet Spray finish offering.
As our products are made locally, we’re able to manage quality control, the development of new products, and the timely delivery of special projects. It might not seem all that unique however rarely do other Australian lighting companies make their own product, mostly being imported from China, India, or South-East Asia – consider this when you need a products installed right the first time!
