COVID-19 and Defries Industries

Posted on May 06, 2020

Everyday all employees at Defries Industries have their temperature checked before they enter the facility.

These daily temperature checks ensure that the staff member is well enough for work, and gives assurances to all staff that we are providing a safe environment.

Our employees adhere to strict 1.5 metre social distancing guidelines in our cleanroom, office spaces and warehousing facilities around Australia.

Additional cleaning and hand washing processes have been implemented and monitored since the Pandemic was declared. Also the decision to split the shifts in manufacturing into a day and afternoon shift was introduced to reduce the number of people working in our cleanroom during the day.

We have been proud of all our employees and our facility here at Defries Industries during COVID-19.

Recycling plastic products through Replas

Posted on April 09, 2019

Defries recently purchased a Replas outdoor table and seating. Replas makes furniture from recycled plastic products including hospital SMS wrap & gowns from Defries Industries.

"We liked supporting Replas - to look at our outdoor seating and think it is the full life cycle of hospital medical products - made into furniture instead of ending up as land fill. It supports our commitment to recycling and sustainability" spoken by Caroline de Fries, Marketing Manger at DI

Please check out the Replas range of furniture at replas.com.au and their newsletter article about Defries Industries.
