MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

The values and ethics of a "hands on", tenacious, entrepreneurial private Australian business are at the core of our organisation. Founded 30 years ago, Michael and John Borg remain the driving force within the business – their energy and enthusiasm are as important today as they were when they commenced operations in the humble family garage.

While it's a little more formal today, our Growth Agenda is underpinned by a commitment to 6 critical pillars, namely:

  1. Investment in Leading Edge Technologies and Optimised Manufacturing Practices.
  2. Continuous improvement of Business Systems and Processes
  3. Excellence in Customer Service
  4. Development of leading brands through market research, product innovation and development
  5. Workplace Safety and Protection of the Environment
  6. Consistent and Contemporary Values, Ethics and Behaviours

Borg Manufacturing is making a difference in our sector. As a growing vertically integrated company we see significant value in innovation and new product development which, in turn, fuels the investment in automated technologies and efficient manufacturing processes. It is a formula that requires vision and long term commitment – the build is as important as the outcome.
