About Us: Aussie Crates Wooden Crate Manufacturer
Welcome to Aussie Crates. We are a family-owned Western Australian manufacturer of wooden crates, timber crates, cases, boxes and pallets, with strong connections in the manufacturing, mining and export industries. As a trusted name for over two decades, Aussie Crates’ mission is to provide fast, efficient packaging solutions, high-quality products, and exceptional customer service.
With a team of around 35 skilled employees, we provide a total timber packaging solution for all transport and packaging requirements. We customise our designs using the latest CAD technology to meet your exact needs. We then build and package your product with superior lead-times.
We take time to gain a thorough understanding and insight into your project, ensuring that the solution we provide is the most innovative, reliable, and cost-effective, regardless of size, quantity, weight, or destination. This is why we are known as The Timber Packaging Professionals.
Aussie Crates is certified under the Australian Wood Packaging Certification Scheme (AWPCS) for the supply of AS1604 standard wood packaging and ISPM-15 compliant timber. BSI holds accreditation for the ISPM-15 standard with JAS-ANZ. ISPM-15 is the international standard for regulating wood packaging in international trade. We are also experienced in using H3 and H4 treated timber, as required by the Gorgon Project on Barrow Island. An internationally recognised certification mark is applied to treated wood to authenticate that timber treatment has occurred and to provide traceability to the country of origin.
Aussie Crates is fully equipped to be the preferred supplier for any import/export standards, meeting AQIS specifications and IATA regulations. We ask that all special requirements for your timber packaging solution be discussed with our friendly team at the time of ordering to ensure that your finished product meets worldwide import and export regulations.
Over 95% of our timber is sourced from well-managed, sustainable plantations in Australia where every tree harvested is replaced. These plantations have been certified by independent third parties as being sustainably well-managed when assessed against internationally recognised standards of the Australian Forestry Certification Scheme (AFCS) and the provisional standards of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
Aussie Crates has a commitment to best practices in managing the impact we have on the environment, which means that we recycle our surplus timber into bags of firewood and sawdust, or provide offcuts to community projects.
HEALTH & SAFETY
We have a strong focus on all occupational health and safety standards. All Aussie Crates employees are encouraged to access training opportunities and provide their input into our continuous improvement strategies.
Aussie Crates sponsors a range of initiatives and groups as part of our ongoing commitment to the West Australian community.
Walk With Me Perth – CEO Challenge
Wednesday 3rd December 2014 was International Day of People With Disability. The “Walk With Me Perth – CEO Challenge” brought together corporate business leaders and disability ambassadors to raise awareness of the challenges faced by people living with disability. The main event was a Segway Race which raised funds for Rocky Bay, a leading provider of disability services in Western Australia, which Aussie Crates was very happy to support.
SAVE African Rhino Foundation
In November 2014, Aussie Crates lent its support to the SAVE African Rhino Foundation by sponsoring a table at their annual fundraising gala dinner in Perth.
The SAVE Foundation is committed to saving the endangered species of Africa from extinction, with a particular focus on the African black rhino and Zimbabwe.
Aussie Crates is very happy to see its surplus timber recycled by a dedicated band of volunteers at Santa’s Workshop who convert timber offcuts into a variety of wooden wonders. Even when it’s not Christmas, the pine is used to make toys and games for community playgroups and child care centres, and presents for disadvantaged families.
If your community group can benefit from recycling some of our timber offcuts into worthwhile projects, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
WA Special Children’s Christmas Party
Aussie Crates is proud to be a sponsor of the annual WA Special Children’s Christmas Party. This unique event is held to give children who have special needs and are suffering from life threatening illnesses one of the happiest days of their life.
Perth Hills Bushfire Appeal
In January 2014, over 50 homes in the Perth Hills were destroyed by a bushfire that swept through the Parkerville and Stoneville communities. Aussie Crates made a donation to the Perth Hills Bushfire Appeal to support the families affected by this natural disaster
In April 2014, Aussie Crates sponsored a team of cyclists who rode 75km from Northam to Swan View in WA, to raise funds for Western Australians living with multiple sclerosis.
Support for Cancer
In October 2013, we sponsored an enthusiastic group of staff from Sandvik Mining and Construction, who participated in ‘The Sunsuper Ride To Conquer Cancer’. This event raises funds for world-leading cancer research programs at the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research.
