How Australian Tanks is reducing production lead times

At Australian Tanks, our new production yard is making a big difference to productivity and lead times. Find out what this means for our clients.

Australian Tanks is proud to supply Australian-made water tanks and stormwater detention systems to infrastructure and commercial projects all over the country. Our quality products and excellent service mean we have been rapidly taking on new projects, but in 2022 we found ourselves struggling to keep up with production demand. 

To solve this problem and remove production bottlenecks, we are excited to announce our new manufacturing yard is now operational. Find out how this benefits your project as well as our business. 

Australian Tanks, Australian made

We design and manufacture some of Australia’s best water tanks and onsite stormwater detention systems. With a new manufacturing yard up and running at our North Gold Coast location, we’re now better placed to meet client timelines. 

In the past, production wait times were affecting project outcomes for many stakeholders. Now that we have more space, our production capacity has increased to accelerate production and expand our manufacturing capacities. 

The new yard has been set up with an optimised workflow design that reduces pinch points. By improving concrete truck access and revamping our pouring methods, we’ve streamlined our production process. 

The win for us is the ability to produce more of our quality tanks at greater speed, and our team is busier than ever doing just that. 


Why choose Australian Tanks?

Our new manufacturing yard has made it easier to access Australian-made water tanks without having to wait for expensive and slow delivery of inferior plastic tanks from overseas or endure timeline blowouts caused by local project backlogs. 

The yard also provides storage capabilities, so we are able to start on our next job without waiting for tanks to be collected. This has been an issue in the past due to transport problems or internal project complications. Still, these types of delays no longer mean every project on the production line has to experience a setback when something goes wrong with one job.

Our team is enjoying the extra space and optimised workflow and is pleased to be able to provide manufacturing timelines with greater certainty. 

New tank sizes

An upgraded manufacturing yard is just part of the ongoing innovation at Australian Tanks.

As well as reducing wait times, we have also recently fabricated a new mould for our existing modular OSD tanks. This item will soon be available with a capacity of 15kL, bridging the gap between our larger tank sizes and offering more options for engineers, designers and project managers who require smaller models. 

Why choose Australian tanks?

We’re local and manufacture here in Australia. Our clients work with us because of our: 

  • Highest-quality and Australian-made water tanks and OSD solutions
  • Premium, knowledgeable customer service
  • Cutting-edge technology (including BIM, MUSIC modelling and 3D modelling)
