The Blind Manufacturers’ Association of Australia (BMAA) has joined Australian Made Campaign Limited as AMCL’s newest Industry Partner.
BMAA is the industry body representing manufacturers and retailers in the window furnishings industry, with a membership ranging “from small family-operated businesses to substantial national corporations.”
“We are thrilled to partner with the Blind Manufacturers Association of Australia to support Australia’s blinds, awnings, and shutters manufacturing industry,” said Australian Made Chief Executive Ben Lazzaro.
“Our Aussie makers produce products made to some of the highest quality and safety standards in the world. At the same time, buying local helps to create jobs and stimulates economic activity to support the broader community.”
“Whether you’re purchasing curtains, outdoor blinds, shutters or indoor blinds, asking for the Australian Made option helps to invest in thousands of Australians at all stages of the supply chain. From the local makers to retailers, the flow-on effects from your purchases can be huge.”
Market research firm IBISWorld estimates that Australia’s window coverings manufacturing industry is worth an estimated $842 million a year and employs nearly 3,000.
BMAA Chairman Gilbert Da Silva said, “This strategic partnership not only strengthens our advocacy for locally made products but also underscores our unwavering dedication to the growth of Australian manufacturing.
“BMAA will proudly display the Australian Made partner logo, symbolising our shared commitment to fostering a robust and thriving manufacturing industry in Australia.”
