Albox Australia Pty Ltd. was established in 1989. It is Australian owned and operated. It is a product development company specializing in the design of leading edge products for records management - office, archival and photographic.
Albox uses polypropylene, either film, sheet, moulded or extruded, in most of its products and several patent applications have been made to cover the original designs.
The general thrust of the Albox design program is to use environmentally friendly contemporary materials to replace both P.V.C. and paperboard in stationery applications.
Albox outsources production to approved manufacturers in Australia and China. This enables the appropriate supply source to be chosen to meet optimum price and performance standards requested by customers.
Marketing of Albox products has to date been focused in Australia to establish consumer acceptance but significant sales have been made to other countries.
Recently, several new products reached production stage and Albox has started setting up an international marketing network.
The Albox management is led by Darby Johns the founder of the company. He is mainly responsible for the design innovations but all of the team are contributors. Darby has a commercial background and extensive international marketing experience. He is also former Chair of the State Record Council of South Australia. Neil Eckermann is the National Sales Manager, Mervyn Taylor is Administration Manager and Peter Smeets is our Graphic Designer. All are well qualified and experienced in their fields.
Albox has a challenging objective:
- To create a completely new records management system that will enable the continuum of records management from office to archive without re-packaging.
- A system that is acid free, metal free, adhesive free and recyclable.
- A system that has a competitive price and the lowest whole of life cost.
