From an eco friendly perspective, imported server racks are hard to justify. If you considering that an average 40RU unit is nearly 2 meters high and 600mm wide, much of the unit cost absorbed in freight and delivering a considerable carbon footprint, imported server racks don’t seem like a clever choice.
Now if you were to manufacture locally and spend more on R&D, use superior materials and eco friendly finishes and be in a position to offer a superior quality product in the same price range, you would have to admit there is a case for Australia made servers racks.
And what if your highly qualified Australian design team worked closely with local IT installers, to find out what issues they had with existing server racks, to design out all of the problems and designed in the features that made server rack installations easier, more flexible and faster.What if you were then in a position to use the latest in lean manufacturing techniques and the world’s best automated precision manufacturing technology to delivery with shorter lead times and provide fast local support.
At some point you would have to consider that any pre conceived ideas you had that imported server racks were a better choice would have to be replaced with the understanding that the best choice is an Australia designed, manufactured, eco friendly finished NIE server rack from Gilkon, makes much, much more sense.
Australian manufacturers may not be competitive in every area of manufacturing but there is a very good case for manufacturing of products, such as server racks, being manufactured in Australia, by worlds best practice manufactures such as Wilson & Gilkes.
