One of the world’s most experienced and respected producers of flexible products used to lift, push, separate, seal and store, Pronal, has relocated to a new and expanded facility.

The new facility at Unit 18, 38-46 South Street in Rydalmere, NSW, will help Pronal to better serve its customers.

Elastomer Engineering experts, Pronal, is represented throughout Australasia by Air Springs Supply. The company believes the new facility is more centrally located for their customers, as well as providing additional room for inventory and spare parts.

"We wanted our new headquarters to have better access for all our customers and additional space for our products to improve availability and lead times. At Rydalmere we found a place that ticked all the boxes and looked bright and professional at the same time," said Pronal Sales and Marketing Manager, James Maslin.

"We spent more than a generation at our previous office, so it may take some getting used to, but the team is excited about the benefits this new place will offer to our valued customers," said Maslin.

Pronal products are based on more than 40 years of producing specialist pneumatic elastomer designs for demanding applications, including government, military, heavy industrial, emergency service, sub-sea and exploration. Australian distributor Air Springs Supply also has more than 30 years specialist experience in applying pneumatic actuation and isolation technologies.

The big advantages of the technology also include simplicity, portability and re-use. Maintenance staff don’t need huge amounts of gear on-site and the stoppers themselves are easy to transport around plants to remote locations, where they can be used, moved on, and used again and again. They are an ideal method by which to achieve compliance with statutory requirements in a cost-effective and efficient manner.
