Waratah fencing – still the best Australian made fencing
Editorial written by Waratah for the Spring 2020 Seasons Magazine.
Waratah have been working with Australian farmers since 1884, back when product was manufactured at its mill in Sydney, NSW.
After 136 years Waratah is still at the forefront of delivering innovative fencing technologies that help producers remain productive. As the only vertically integrated fencing company in Australia, Waratah premium quality fence products are made across numerous facilities throughout Australia, employing hundreds of Australians at each step of the process.
The Waratah fencing system consists of 3 key categories – wire, posts & accessories.
The longest serving zinc/aluminium fence wire in Australia is Longlife Blue colour wire – proven in the field and the lab for over 20 years, farmers know they have the best wire money can buy when they see the distinctive blue colour, which is a registered trademark.
Waratah Jio posts are the only posts made in Australia, every other fencing company imports their Y posts from China. All our accessories are made to make any fencing job easier and more effective.
Waratah has been registered with the Australian Made initiative for decades and proudly displays the green & gold logo. The logo embodies quality and commitment to consistency, with 99% of people in a recent poll saying they recognise and trust the logo to deliver quality. Since covid in February, there has been a rush by many companies to register for Australian Made – Australian patriotism & supporting out mates is important to us all.
Waratah also embodies the Australian ideals of mateship, integrity and compassion for those in need. Waratah always lend assistance when its needed & the recent bushfires across Australia were no different, with support of Blaze Aid through product donations, build days & training sessions on the simplicity of the Waratah fencing system for Blaze Aid volunteers. The volunteers are generally unskilled in the finer art of fencing, but after a few sessions with a local Waratah representative, the backpackers (& others) are on their way, building much needed boundary fences for farmers in desperate need. Waratah also has a branded trailer of fencing equipment that is providing support where it is needed. If you think you have what it takes to help rebuild fencing, Blaze aid still has a lot of work to do visit www.blazeaid.com.au and click on “Lend a hand” for more information.
