Premium Kitchen Appliance Brands made in Australia

Expert Advice ,

If you are preparing for a new kitchen renovation and are on the lookout for premium kitchen appliances, particularly those designed and made locally, you may be having more trouble than you expected. With higher costs of manufacturing in Australia, many kitchen appliance brands are choosing to construct their products offshore.

There are many reasons why brands produce their products overseas and ship them to Australia for sale, some of which include:

  • Higher Employee Wages
  • Cost of Importing Materials
  • Higher Manufacturing Costs
  • Environmental Concerns
  • Lower Cost to Consumer

Meanwhile, there are numerous reasons that businesses are still manufacturing in Australia, and these are important for consumers to understand and factor into their purchase decisions. Some of these factors include:

  • Higher Quality Standards
  • Environmentally Conscious Manufacturing
  • Fair Wages & Compensation
  • Supporting the Local Economy
  • Local Parts, Service & Support
  • Designed with Australian Households in mind
  • Designed to withstand the Australian Environment
