In recent years, there has seen to be a great demand in the market for a range of premium street furniture provided with a superior level of support, advice, and excelled customer service.Through extensive market research it was seen that facilities throughout Australia – local governments, shopping centres, educational facilities, and public transport stations – had been instructed that the wait time to receive street furniture can be up to 12 weeks! This is because those furniture items were either procured overseas on an order-by-order basis or the locally sourced and manufactured supply chain is very slow and not ‘service based.’ This is where Astra Street furniture can meet and exceed client expectations through the below main points of difference.Points of Difference:· 100% Australian Made · Fast Service · Environmentally Responsible · Complete DDA Compliance· Active Product Development - Industry issues listened to and resolved· Architectural Resources available on Astra websiteEach of the Astra Suites has been designed and manufactured from locally sourced raw materials, contributing to the quality and durability of the product.
