Manufacturing Excellence

Throughout the company’s history Stratco has always been committed to establishing manufacturing centres to provide locally produced products backed by qualified people. This commitment to manufacturing has helped to drive the continued expansion of Stratco and has lead to the establishment of in excess of 20 individual manufacturing facilities.

Stratco takes great pride in the safety, capability and presentation standard of all manufacturing facilities and the equipment installed in these locations. The company’s continual investment in plant and equipment coupled with the design and manufacturing capabilities of the engineering support team has ensured that leading edge technology is present in all manufacturing facilities.

Stratco Manufacturing Factory

Stratco is rightly proud of the capabilities of the company’s roll forming, folding, pressing, cutting, moulding and fabrication equipment and the many skilled and experienced team members who operate them.

It is these skilled team members who through the use of premium quality raw materials, advanced and efficient equipment and manufacturing techniques ensure that all products manufactured by Stratco are of an exceptionally high standard.

Stratco is recognised as being an excellent and innovative manufacturer and works hard to maintain this reputation through close collaboration between the manufacturing and engineering teams. This team work has resulted in the development of many innovative purpose built machines and unique manufacturing techniques.

Research and Development

Stratco is held in high regard for its ongoing commitment to the research and development of new and existing products.

Prior to releasing a product to the market, Stratco’s team of designers, programmers and engineers conduct many hours of development, analysis and testing to ensure that stringent Australian and International Standards have been met.

Stratco's commitment to research and development, and the investment, development and integration of state of the art manufacturing technology has enabled the company to diversify and expand its wide range of products and ensures they are superior in design, practical in application and meet customer needs.
