Wiretainers' expertise is in the design and construction of containers for the protection, separation and transport of component parts used in the manufacturing process. The stacking stillages and pallets used provide easy access, safety, ease of identification and convenience for operators whilst maximising floor space, cutting handling costs and making stocktaking simpler. Pallets vary in design, construction and finish to cover the range of sizes and weights of products manufactured by the many different industries we service.
Over the years Wiretainers have also become experts in the containment and capture of animals.
Since we started we have made possum traps and other animal traps including the Wiretainer’s Cat trap. We have also been heavily involved in the design and construction of many cages and animal friendly enclosures for Melbourne Zoo, Healsville Sanctuary and other parks and Zoos around Australia. These projects are unique and Wiretainers have built our reputation on the understanding of both the animals and the manufacturing process to be able to do this sort of work to an industry leading standard.
Wiretainers also manufacture an Australian standard fork lift safety cage, as well as standard stillages, trolleys and baskets.
Wiretainers started in Kew in 1970 and moved to East Brunswick soon after. Wiretainers started off making Wine and Bread Crates and then moved into larger materials handling equipment whilst still maintaining manufacture of smaller wire products.
