Northside Trusses and Frames Named as TABMAs Best

Northside Trusses and Frames was named as TABMAs best Truss and Frame business in a national awards night in Sydney in October. The criteria for Best Frame and Truss Operation, Australia is all-encompassing; covering nearly every aspect of business operations – including: building & surrounds, signage, general housekeeping, timber storage area (well laid out & accessible), production methods & workflow, framing line, truss line, materials handling, safety, manual handling facilities, signage (i.e. warning signs), personnel safety equipment, fire prevention, offcut & shavings storage & disposal, storage/delivery area, access for forklifts, branding, office layout & general presentation.

This award followed on from winning the Queensland state award.

“It was great to win this award in our 30th year of operation”, Don Gynther stated. “We have invested in equipment for just not improving productivity but also safety and workplace enjoyment. We noticed the impact of heavy lifting on our employees and looked to find mechanical options to reduce the impact. The truss line was modified first followed by our unique frame lines. The frame lines are providing us with nearly twice the productivity of a conventional frame line. So the Award is icing on the cake.”
