KE OPTICAL GROUP
Our association with BIA started almost 10 years ago, when we were looking to outsource a simple regular task that could easily be done offsite.
Since then, our relationship has grown substantially, whereby a significant part of our processing work is done and dispatched from the BIA site on a daily basis.
We also have a number of supported workers who work at our site on a daily basis (from three to six workers), and work side by side with our staff completing routine warehouse and packaging tasks.
The benefits to us are enormous. We can manage our fluctuating workload without bringing in casual staff, and we also have many simple, repetitive tasks that we were having trouble keeping our staff focused on: these tasks are now completed by BIA staff.
The BIA staff seem to thrive on the challenge, and enjoy working at a different work site. In fact they often complain if they
‘haven’t been on the roster recently’! On a personal level, our staff derive a great deal of satisfaction from seeing the supported workers being able to successfully integrate into our workplace, and enjoy working alongside the BIA crew.
We are always able to work through any challenges or problems that arise due
to the long standing, open and honest relationship that has been established between us and BIA. Overall we would highly recommend BIA!!

We have been using Brunswick Industries to fill, label and pack our environmental chemistries over the last year.
We have been consistently impressed with their service and professionalism. They do a professional job and using their service has saved us time and money.
– BEN OLMEYER, GENERAL MANAGER
Best thing we ever did. BIA has freed up our time to concentrate on sales. There were some early teething problems (as could be expected) but the management team listened to our concerns and implemented solutions to our satisfaction.
We are very happy with the BIA team. Well done!
– PAUL COX, MANAGER
Finally found a great organisation dedicated to providing affordable quality services to businesses and as an added bonus they are doing their bit for the community in providing job opportunities and experience to people with disabilities.
What a fantastic concept! I am so proud to tell people that my products are assembled at Brunswick Industries and I spread the word to everyone I meet.
Keep up the great work!

Tonight is parent teacher night and I have had such positive feedback from our parents. Their children have spoken positively about your facility and the work that they have been doing. I was able to share photos and video which enabled parents to gain a better perspective of the work space. We are all looking forward to our next visit.

The BIA team are a pleasure to work with.
They are extremely professional and responsive to our needs and we hope that our successful cooperation will continue in the future as our business expands.
– MICHAEL SHNEYDERMAN, MANAGING DIRECTOR
Enoteca Sileno have been working with BIA since 2004 and found them to be a great organisation to work with.
We have asked them to do several different jobs and whatever we have asked, they have accomplished with great enthusiasm and professionalism.
All the staff make BIA an easy organisation to recommend to other companies looking for work to be done for them. We at Enoteca hope to continue this long association for many
years to come.

The Rotary Club of Brunswick was instrumental in setting up a sheltered workshop for people with a disability.
In 1970 the club raised more than $10,000 to purchase the block of land adjacent to 3 Syme Street to enable the facility to expand, and in 1973, with support from the Brunswick Lions Club, they again stepped up and raised $14,000 to build a new onsite canteen.
Brunswick Industries Association Incorporated recognises the huge contribution made by the Rotary Club of Brunswick and appreciates the continuing strong relationship.
