It would be easy for U Kanga Do It to claim that our Kanga hire is 100% Australian. The next question may then be, ‘sure, but where are your machines manufactured and who owns that company?’ The answer to that is Australia and…Australia! Put that with our little business being Australian and you could make a chant out of that! (Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!)
Does 100% Australian Kanga hire really matter?
We are in a world where you are hard pressed to know if your Bonds jocks are made overseas, or if Arnott biscuits are owned by Aussies and who actually makes money out of Vegemite? Who then really cares about kanga hire being Australian?! We’ll I’m guessing not many people. However, it does mean something positive especially in our current economic pressures on the manufacturing sector.
I’m no economist, but when a product is Australian owned and made it must benefit all of us indirectly. I found the following summary that helps us see how significant this Aussie owned and made factor is.
‘Research published by the Industry Capability Network shows that for every $1 million of new or retained manufacturing business in Australia, the following effects flow through the economy:
- $333,900 worth of tax revenue generated
- $985,000 worth of value-added generated
- $95,000 worth of welfare benefits saved
- 10 full-time jobs created
It makes sense to buy things that have been made right here in Australia. 1 Industry Capability Network. Economic impacts of the manufacturing and services sectors 2008. (www.icn.org.au)’
So in a very small way, U Kanga Do It uses the green and gold machines so that each time you hire them, ‘Us Aussies’ all benefit!
