Our investment in our 100,000 sqm of manufacturing space across the country enables us to deliver to clients across a broad range of capabilities and services, over a wide geographic network.
Schiavello sources and manufactures 95% of our products in Australia, from Australian-owned and grown suppliers, making us one of the largest customers of companies such as Blue Scope Steel, Laminex, Capral Aluminium and Dulux.
Our operation not only benefits the local economy, but also our customers. Maintaining control over the end to end process helps us ensure the integrity of the product every time, and allows us to collaborate quickly and effectively with clients on tailored and bespoke solutions for their unique project needs.
Committed to innovation, we implement the latest technologies and processes to ensure our facilities remain world- class. We apply best practice manufacturing principles to everything we do, including our approach to sustainability and the environment. One such initiative has been the launch of e-cycle®, an environmental program that re-acquires Schiavello furniture at the end of its lifecycle to recycle or reuse and resell as a way of reducing material consumption churn.
Recognising Schiavello’s world-class achievements in manufacturing, in 2008 Schiavello was inducted into the Victorian Manufacturers Hall of Fame, three years after TonySchiavello’s individual contribution to manufacturing was recognised with his own induction into the Victorian Manufacturers Hall of Fame.
We recognise the importance of our staff, continually investing in their knowledge and skills to ensure we deliver superior product every time. Many of our employees have built their skills at Schiavello over the years, and continue to mentor new generations as they join our team. In 2012, Schiavello was named Apprentice Employer of the Year at the Master Builders Association of Victoria Apprentice awards.
