European industrial impact safety systems company Stommpy has opened its doors in Australia and is already supplying facilities in Queensland and Victoria.

Stommpy makes a broad range of products, including bollards and barriers, to boost passive safety within facilities and reduce the high cost of workplace accidents and infrastructural damage.

The company already supplies facilities across Europe, UK and USA in a number of sectors including food and beverage.

Stommpy's Australian head, Arthur Seiler, said strong uptake of Stommpy's bollard and barrier installations in high-hygiene facilities was due to its compliance to hygienic food safety standards and because in the case of fire, the materials used do not emit toxic gases.

Moreover, Stommpy products have been designed to ensure that impacts won’t damage concrete, and to offer an easier repair than alternatives, Seiler said.

“Being a project manager, I always have safety at the forefront of my mind. To be able to provide a solution to the Australian market that is not only superior in technological advancements but that will make a difference to the safety of any facility brings me great pride.”

The company, which has also recently opened offices in Poland and Germany, has had successful year both here and overseas, according to Marco Charini, general manager of Stommpy in Italy.

“The Australian team has started just recently... and they have already created their own network of reliable distributors.”
