The Voltex Initiatives

Environment
Ethics & People
Community

It is our responsibility as a business to take care of our manufacturers, our passionate team members, and our customers. We also have an obligation to the environment, and to contribute to the success of future sparkies around Australia.

But this is only a start! Tell us what is important to you, and what we
should focus on. Contact us and lets us know.

Eco-friendly Product Packaging

You may have noticed recently that we have been transitioning to raw cardboard packaging boxes. These use recycled material where possible, have a huge reduction in ink used, and removal of the laminate glossy coating means they are easier to recycle and breakdown better for those who want to use them in the garden.

Each new product is designed with the intention of being plastic-free. An example of this is the new junction boxes: the cable connectors are clipped into the base, instead of being in a plastic bag. Or the RCBO’s in a cardboard box, instead of plastic shrink-wrap.

Biodegradable Void Fills

Although our current void-fill is recyclable, we’re going one step further and transitioning to air pillows made from bio-degradable plastic this summer. This material breaks down into Carbon Dioxide and Water within a year, and has been certified compostable, so can be placed in the green bin or in your garden.

Renewable Energy

In January 2021, Voltex headquarters are moving to a new office and warehouse facility in Adelaide. This building has been designed to be energy smart, including a night-flush ventilation system, an indirect evaporative cooling system, and early 2021 we’ll be commissioning a huge solar panel and battery system, with the ambition of being energy neutral.

Our mission
“To help our passionate team members, electrical contractors, and vendors fulfil their missions, by moving fast in an environment of trust and transparency."

This is at the core of everything that we do. It is reflected in our supply chain, with vendors being represented by our manufacturers and freight service providers. We are in this for the long run, and ensuring that our partners have a healthy business results in better quality product and better freight services for you.

Local Manufacturing

Wherever possible, we are trying to bring manufacturing back into Australia. An example of this is the corrugated conduit range, and PVC conduit fittings which are being manufactured just outside of Melbourne. Did you know we've recently brought back manufacturing of corrugated conduit and PVC conduit fittings to Victoria, which were previously manufactured overseas? And our fire protection range is made in South Australia?

Global Awareness

Where it is not possible to source from Australian suppliers, we believe in spreading our manufacturing partners across the globe. 2020 showed us how fragile our world can be and we strongly believe that sourcing from one country or one region of the world only is risky for us and our customers. We currently source from 12 different countries and we are planning to diversify more in 2021 and beyond.

Ethical Compliance

For our global manufacturers, we have implemented an ethical compliance program. These are non-negotiable terms that describes the minimum requirements on social and working conditions, together with environmental demands. Happier workers = less quality mistakes and better products.

Passionate Team Members

And finally, our passionate team members. Companies can try to replicate the Voltex model, but they will never be able to copy the awesome crew we have here. Our people are our most valuable resource, and are rewarded generously for their hard work and demonstration of the Voltex values.

Community
Initiatives

From humble beginnings, the Voltex family has grown into a network of over 10,000 registered electricians across Australia and New Zealand. We have a responsibility to take care of our family! So here are a couple of things we are doing today, and some other ideas for the future:

Charity

One of our main partners is RRT who provide emergency and disaster relief, and support members of our community including the homeless and disadvantaged youth. They also work with charitable organisations that empower those with a disability or heath issues. Many of our staff regularly volunteer, and we take pride in giving back to the community that supports us.

DONATE or LOLLIES?

Another idea we have is to select DONATE instead of LOLLIES at checkout. We hear of some busy customers who place orders every day, and we also know too much of a good thing ain’t good for anyone! So why not put this money towards a charity of your choice? We are aiming to roll this out early 2021. If you have any specific charities that should be on the list, please let us know!

Makings Sparkies Lives Better

It is here that we need the most help. What more can we do to allow you to get ahead, and create a better life for you and your family?
