AusPress strengthens ties with TAFE

Thanks to The Master Plumbers Association of South Australia for their recent feature on our association with TAFE SA and our continued support in the development of South Australian Plumbing Apprentices with their article entitled: Working with TAFE SA to Develop Future Skills

AusPress Systems are proud to be involved with the South Australian TAFE colleges and frequently assist as part of their continued product and technical knowledge development.

With the past supply of stainless drainage pipe and fittings plus stainless press-fit product for the fire services training area, the latest supply of the new civil product “KG2000” polypropylene drainage to TAFE continues our support in providing lecturers and apprentices with the latest product offerings to train with.

We have working models set up at the leading Tonsley TAFE campus to help apprentices be familiar with the correct installation and handling of the latest products for the transition from classroom to trench.

These same products are being used extensively across Adelaide with an increase in commercial and industrial projects specifying their installation, particularly in healthcare, food, meat and beverage processing.

Each year AusPress contribute to the leading Certificate 4 apprentice, awarding them a press tool set including the SPM24 tool and their choice of jaws to suit copper, stainless or pex press systems. This tool was developed to be the ‘go-to’ tool for press systems up to 32mm and an excellent addition to the toolbox.

Established in 1992 (originally named Blucher Australia Pty Ltd), we’re based in Adelaide and supply commercial and industrial projects Australia wide.

Over the years, our product range has grown, as has our knowledge and technical expertise. Today we remain 100% South Australian owned and operated; and we continue to be the market leader in the supply of drainage and press-fit products when hygiene, performance and reliability are critical.
