How To Choose A Manufacturer For Aluminium In Thailand

There are certain industries that frequently require the use of aluminium in their projects. Those in the construction, manufacturing, processing and similar industries would need typical products such as Aluminium in Thailand. If you are in any of these industries, it would be smart to look for a manufacturer or supplier where you will get all your needed supplies. In order to find the right manufacturer, you can refer to the following ideas.

Offers a wide variety of products

One of the things that you should check when visiting a manufacturer’s website are the products they offer. Most manufacturers have catalogues where they showcase their products including its prices.  Go for a manufacturer that offers more products than their competitors so you no longer have to deal with different manufacturers or suppliers just to get all your needed supplies for your project. Aside from a wide array of products to choose from, the manufacturer should be able to offer options to their customers such as products that are brand new and OEM parts for those who want high quality yet cheaper materials for their project.

Reputable company

There are numerous manufacturers of Aluminium in Thailand but choose one that is trusted and recommended by both suppliers and customers in the industry. You may also want to check the network of the manufacturer to see if it has strong connections with other suppliers abroad. Find time to read customer reviews especially product reviews to find out if you will have a positive business relationship with the manufacturer especially if you intend to make purchases frequently.

Affordable products

Another major consideration in choosing a manufacturer forAluminium in Thailand is the affordability of its products. When you buy straight from the manufacturer, you get the opportunity to get the items at a much lower price compared to having the items from mere distributors. If you buy the products in bulk, all the more you get higher discounts from the manufacturer. Ask for promos and deals to further lower your overall expenses on your needed products.


EIHL Started Team Building Season

The summer break is just starting but the team building is already on its way for the new season of the ice hockey.

A number of the EIHL teams have already made an announcement regarding their key players who will be returning for the campaign of 2017-2018. The new season will start in September. The teams have also confirmed that some of their members have already left them.

Sheffield Steelers team is still enjoying their victory from the play-off final championship but the management has already announced the renewal of a two-year contract for Paul Thompson, the coach, and Jerry Anderson, the assistant coach.

They have also made sure that their key forward, Mattieu Roy, will be going back to the ice with them. Among the returnees are Gullaime Desbiens and Ervins Mostokovs who is the netminder. Sad news for some because there will be a number of players who will not be joining the team again including Anders Franzon, the blueliner and Geoff Walker, the forward, who scored two goals against Cardiff Devils during the final match.

Braehead Clan, on the other hand, is planning to start the next season with a new line-up starting from the coach, Ryan Finnerty, whom left the company even before the end of the last season. He has accomplished a lot for the team by delivering conference titles as well as Champions League but the team is now aiming to start anew and they are considering hiring a player-coach instead. Matt Keith, the captain and team leader, is no longer part of the team too.

Belfast Giants will also be welcoming a new coach after the departure of Derrick Walser. The Irish side’s forward player, Mike Forney, will be going back to his hometown Minnesota.

On the side of Coventry, the coach will still be Danny Stewart as he renewed his contract along with Jordan Pietrus, the captain, and Ross Venus, the forward player coming from Britain. They have confirmed that Jim Jorgensen will no longer be a part of the team.

As various teams have added new players and retained old ones, one thing is for sure and that is they will need to organize activities for team building in order to foster teamwork with the new and old members to ensure that they will be bringing the championship for next season.

HP’s New Technology to change how Identification Cards are printed

Aside from employee identification cards, companies face the challenge of printing hundreds of thousands of visitor badges or guest cards. In many instances, large amounts of paper, plastics and ink are wasted on the plastic card printer. HP Labs has recognized the challenge by introducing a new hybrid printing technology that will change the distribution of employee ID’s, visitors passes, gate passes and temporary passes.

In order to enhance of efficiency of plastic card printing, HP developed a technology called IonTouch which is a cross between the traditional plastic card printer and e-ink technology. Information on the plastic identification cards can be rewritten so that they can be reused by other individuals after card expiration instead of being thrown away to the landfills.

HP’s proprietary technology replaces the traditional ID card printer with the IonTouch Imager that has the capability to write and re-write on a 2.5 inch 300 x 300 pixel display for up to 10,000 times. The surface of the display has the capability for either black or white content or 16 levels of grayscale. The technology is not yet that advanced for color but sufficient enough since most of the HP printer’s use involves employee badges, visitor passes and hotel guest cards.

When the IonTouch system is used, the visitor’s pass can be printed on the spot with his name and contact information including a photo and other additional details like the time of appointment and the name of the person that will be visited. Compared to e-ink and digital displays that costs about $50 per card, HP rewritable display will cost the company a few cents.

Another benefit gained from the HP rewritable display is the lack of power draw to hold rewritable content. When special marks and codes are required on the plastic cards for security reasons and to avoid duplication, you only need to switch to non-permanent ink. Since the plastic identification cards are reusable, it reduces plastic waste disposed on the landfills.

Since the only way with which information can be changed is through the IonTouch Imager, another layer of protection is added to the cards making them very secure. HP technology is very important for businesses that make use of plastic identification cards.


Warning To Consumers Raised Against Extra Mile Movers

The removalist company under fire is based in Sydney and is claiming to offer their clients with a five star service. The NSW Fair Trading recently announced a warning to the general public against the company because it has already received around 70 complaints and one of their clients is said to be suffering major damages amounting to $30,000.

The warning was issued by Fair Trading and it tells consumers not to transact with Extra Mile Movers which is a removalist company that services locally and interstates. They are based in the southwestern part of Sydney in Chipping Norton.

According to Rod Stowe, the commissioner of Fair Trading, they have received many complaints regarding company Extra Mile Movers. Consumers said that their services are slow or partial and there are cases where they do not deliver the service expected of them which is unlike reputable removalists in Sydney. There are also clients who complained regarding damages to their property and some belongings that were lost during the moving process. The company demands to be paid more than the agreed amount and does not follow the price as stated on the contract.

Stowe added that despite the complaints coming from the clients, the company did not perform any countermeasures to compensate for the problem they have caused which is why they decided to refer the issue to the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

Last December, the watchdog of the consumer was able to gather 12 complaints directed to the company Extra Mile Movers thus they were included in the Complaints Register of the Fair Trading for that particular month.

Maria shared her experience with the company in June of 2016. There were damages inflicted to her household items amounting to $30,000 but up to this time the company was not able to send her any form of compensation.

Maria said that she did not expect removalists in Sydney to behave in such manner but she was appalled by the way Extra Mile Movers handled her property without care or any type of consideration.


Work Store Units Being Snapped Up For Man-Caves

Industrial property developers in Brisbane are manning up in a big way with the city’s industrial hubs experiencing a construction boom. There is increased demand from average individuals who want an affordable space instead of garages and backyard sheds.

According to CBRE industrial specialists Nick Witheriff and Dan Munnich, more than 200 “man-caves” and work store units are currently under construction with more planned for other sites. Developments are registering significant pre-sales off-the-plan with at least 70% of the buyers planning to be the owners/occupiers.

Off-the-plan is the fastest growing industrial trend that the market has seen. There was no such demand in the previous years that is why it is surprising to see this trend. According to Mr. Witheriff, the work store units are immediately bought to be transformed into man-caves, for alternative home offices, for storage space and for fund investments by the average moms and dads and small business operators.

Previously, there has been no entry level industrial that is below $500,000 but with the entry level industrial being sub $300,000 with a low interest rate environment, the work store units were easily snapped up.

Work store developments have emerged in Brisbane for the past 12 to 18 months and it expected that the trend will gain further momentum towards the end of the year because of the increasing demand from owners/occupiers.

Northgate at the north of Brisbane, another burgeoning hub is expected to join the boom for man-caves with N62, a two-stage development at 62 Crockford St that will add another 32 work store units for investment purposes.

According to Mr. Munnich, right now, there are an equal number of inquiries from buyers of work store units and the number of developers that are looking at spaces to build them. This shows that a shift in market has taken place for this style of product.

Looking for a concrete cutter in Brisbane to hire? You have come to the right place. Not only can you hire a concrete cutter, an experienced operator will share his years of experience and skills so that the job can be performed in the best way possible at the most competitive prices.

Spotless CEO Claims Bid Is Not A Prospect

Downer EDI’s massive takeover bid for Spotless shook headlines recently for a lot of reasons. One of them is how it would change the market for office cleaning in Melbourne, or anywhere in Australia. With AU$1.27 B worth of cash backing that bid, a lot of people took notice. Except the Spotless Group itself it seems.

At least, that’s what the chief executive of Spotless, Mr. Martin Sheppard, says. He recently claimed that the Spotless Group is currently focused on playing to their strategy. Mr. Sheppard states that Spotless has secured extensions to some notable contracts in the health industry. Included in this list is a four-year extension to a partnership with hospital operator Healthscope, involving linen and laundry all over the country.

The executive claims that the Spotless group is the representation of a massive amount of combined contract revenues from across the country over a time span of five years amounting to around $210 M. With additional contracts this year, that value spikes to an impressive $300M.

Spotless is currently under contract to the Alfred Hospital and Healthscope. For the former, it acts as provider for several key aspects of the hospital; cleaning, food, security, grounds and garden maintenance, among other things. For the latter, it’s contracted for linen rental and laundry service provider for 31 Healthscope hospitals across the country.

The bid from Downer EDI, representing an interest of $1.15/share was made more than a week past, but Spotless has been under pressure from investors seeking to accept the deal, though the offer included an equity raising that wasn’t really met with positive reception.

According to Mr. Sheppard, the Spotless executives need time to consider the offer.

He states that the company had recently mobilized staff to Queensland to assist people that have been affect by the recent rough weather and floods of Cyclone Debbie. He adds that the company had been securing its site and taking care of their customers. And that the company have been looking over their shoulder with the bid.

Spotless provides a wide range of services, from office cleaning in Melbourne, to catering in Sydney, among other things.


Businesses In Alabama Oppose Controversial Bathroom Bill

Alabama’s version of the controversial bathroom bill that plunged North Carolina into a political chaos has raised concerns from businesses and economic development organizations. The controversial bill that is called “Alabama Privacy Act” regulates access to public restrooms inside businesses.

The bill that has been brought to the spotlight has created unique alliances; the left-leaning ACLU and the conservative Eagle Forum of Alabama that are usually at odds with each other both oppose the bill. If access to public restrooms will be regulated, it will create a severe economic blow to the State of Alabama.

On the other hand, State Senator Phil Williams, R-Rainbow City who is sponsoring the bill in undeterred because he believes that there is a lot of misinformation circulating and hand-wringing that is unnecessary. He believes that there is nothing about his bill that will severely affect commerce; instead it would create three types of bathrooms:

  • A restroom, bathroom or changing facility designed for the use of one person at a time
  • A restroom, bathroom or changing facility designed for multiple individuals of the same gender
  • A restroom, bathroom or changing facility designed for multiple individuals at once irrespective of gender.

On the third type of restroom, an attendant is required to monitor appropriate use and answer concerns of users. According to Williams, businesses in Alabama will not be affected by the bill except Target that has policies concerning transgender customers that must use bathrooms designated for their gender identity.

The bill respects the privacy and security of the citizens of Alabama. Williams denies that his bill is similar to the North Carolina legislation that was the subject of boycott from professional sports leagues and entertainers. Businesses have suffered from a collective loss of $630 million due to the bill. In Alabama, businesses do not want to travel the same path as those in North Carolina.

Bathrooms come in different designs and sizes. If you desire a bathroom that is functional and organized, your best option is compact vanity units for all your bathroom supplies and necessities. A solid hardwood vanity unit is ideal to suit the taste and needs of most homeowners.
