This week (15-21 May) is Australian Made Week. Wattwatchers Digital Energy is celebrating by announcing that we’ve been approved to carry the Made in Australia label, and we can’t think of a better allegiance for our brand.
Australian designed, made and owned.
That’s Wattwatchers, and it’s a badge we wear with pride as we take Aussie innovation to the world.
Ever since Wattwatchers won the Australian Technology Competition New Energy Award back in 2016, which recognised our potential for global growth, we’ve embraced the value of our inherent ‘Australian-ness’.
Now we’ve formalised it by successfully registering to carry the Made in Australia label.
Wattwatchers CEO Gavin Dietz explains: ‘This is something we have wanted for many years now and we could not be prouder. We love making products here, we love designing them here, and we look forward to building on our Made In Australia achievements with even more investments in local manufacturing planned.’
It puts us in great company.
‘When you buy Australian, you support Australia – you create jobs and economic activity while enjoying products made to some of the highest standards in the world. Look out for the Australian Made logo when you shop to be sure you’re buying genuinely Aussie!’ – Australian Made official website
Our Made in Australia timing is deliberate.
The Covid-19 pandemic, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and ensuing global supply chain pressures have made our longstanding partnership with turnkey manufacturing company Classtek, based in western Sydney, more important than ever.
Made in Australia is a mark of quality that we’ll now carry proudly around Australia, and everywhere in the world that Wattwatchers is being deployed.
You’ll find our solutions in Italy and Ireland, the UK, South Africa and Singapore, and East Asia and North America are in our sights.
Our development and growth funding comes from leading Australian organisations including the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC), the Australian Government’s ‘green bank’; Melbourne-based impact investor Kilara Capital; and Southern Cross Venture Partners (SXVP); with grant funding from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).
As our international growth accelerates across green building, Net Zero, energy management and electrification use cases, Wattwatchers is working closely with Austrade, Investment NSW and the Australian Government’s Export Market Development Grant (EMDG) program.
It’s great to be Australian.
