Manufacturing

Australian manufacturing

SDI Plastics are based in Brisbane, Australia and are a proud producer of Australian made plastic products.  Our manufacturing operation supports businesses who wish to manufacture their products onshore and SDI Plastics have an amazing team to support you throughout your journey.  Australian manufacturing offers many advantages and allows you to be onsite throughout the entire lifecycle of the manufacturing process.  Our team of experts encourage you to be involved and immerse yourself from the initial discovery phase, concept creation, prototype development, toolmaking through to the manufacturing of the final product. There is so much value in seeing your idea transform into reality, and being there every step of the way.

Reshoring and onshoring

The practice of bringing manufacturing services back to Australia from overseas is a trend that has risen over the last few years. SDI Plastics can help support businesses who are seeking to produce their products onshore, offering a risk proof supply chain through reshoring manufacturing services back to Australia. There are many business advantages to consider as manufacturers understand the extended supply chains that go with offshore sourcing, add risks that need to be taken into account.  Challenges such as delivering quality products, shipping delays, domestic or international issues can cut off the flow of products and intellectual property may not always be protected in some low cost locations.  

With SDI Plastics, bringing your manufacturing back to Australia allows the quality to be better monitored, controlled and maintained locally, with local supply and sustainable manufacturing to produce your products quickly and with ease.
