Vaulta, the Brisbane-based manufacturer of recyclable, high-performance batteries, has been certified to carry the iconic Australian Made logo – the ultimate mark of Aussie authenticity.
The Australian Made logo is the nation’s most trusted and recognised country-of-origin symbol. It can only be carried by products that are certified as ‘genuinely Australian’ by a strict third-party accreditation system.
The logo means customers – both here and overseas – can be sure they’re buying authentic, premium products that are made to demanding Australian standards.
Vaulta Founder and CEO Dominic Spooner says carrying the Australian Made logo verifies the company’s commitment to supporting the local supply chain and promoting sustainable economic growth at home.
“It’s been around as long as I can remember and it’s one of the most iconic logos in the country,” he says.
“It captures our commitment to designing, making, buying and employing local.”
According to Roy Morgan Research, almost all Australians (99 per cent) recognise the logo, which is administered by the not-for-profit Australian Made Campaign Ltd (AMCL) and supported by national, state and territory chambers of commerce.
Vaulta uses advanced composite materials and smart, streamlined design to make high-performance batteries that are easy to assemble and disassemble, which means they can be reused, repaired and recycled as needed.
In 2022, after years of research and development, Vaulta began utilising its patented battery casing technology to manufacture complete battery energy storage systems (BESS) for residential and commercial applications.
Vaulta’s batteries are all designed, assembled and tested locally. The company recently added seven new staff members to its entirely Brisbane-based team, and is in the process of opening a dedicated production facility in the Brisbane suburb of Northgate, at the ARM (Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing) Hub.
Dominic says the famous Australian Made logo will make the ‘Australian connection’ instantly and clearly for Vaulta’s customers.
“It validates what we set out to do from the start,” he says, “and it’s one of the most obvious things we could do to prove our commitment to local content.”
The logo is also registered in the USA, China, South Korea and Singapore, which will come in handy as demand for Vaulta’s range of recyclable and repairable batteries continues to grow both domestically and overseas.
“We harbour great export goals,” Dominic says, “but we’re here to stay. Australia will always be Vaulta HQ.”
