Maxisafe: Making site safety great

When Adrian and Paul Phillips, two brothers from Melbourne, started Techware in 2003, they knew one thing for certain: safety never goes out of style. Coming from an industrial background, the Phillips brothers decided to go into the personal protective equipment (PPE) business, and they have never looked back since. Techware’s leading brand is Maxisafe, which is how they are recognised across Australia, specialising in the design and manufacture of hand, eye, respiratory, head and hearing protection. Their premium height safety products include confined-space harnesses, shock-absorbing lanyards, steel-alloy locking karabiners, and light-weight suspension straps. Since day one, they have seen exponential growth of their business, as the demand for high-grade reliable PPE has increased over the past two decades.
As demand has risen, the Maxisafe brand has expanded in its range. Their broad portfolio of products has given them an edge over their competitors in the market. Presently, Maxisafe has warehouses in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. Whilst their factories are located everywhere from Germany to the United States, to South Africa, Taiwan and India. BSC is one of Maxisafe’s Australian distribution partners. Michael Rowe, a Product Manager at BSC, brings with him extensive knowledge and history in the field of mechanical maintenance. According to Michael, industrial safety has been a thriving area of BSC distribution over the past few years. Read More
