Kevin Wang established his tools business in 1996 in the U.S. He was the first person to introduce power tools produced by China into the U.S. market allowing them to gain faith in “Made in China” products.
Along with the strengthening of the company, Kevin came to understand the ways of how the Northern American markets function. In 2001, Jonathan Peters (a friend for many years that grew up on a ranch in Canada) started to work together, importing farming equipment from China into North America. After research, they found that farming equipment in China was a blank page. As a result, Kevin and Jonathan decided to go back to China in 2003 and founded Pro-Built Machinery Cooperation which is dedicated to the production of farming equipment.
Kevin and Jonathan, worked together to manufacture and export the products into the North American market. Due to the experience gained in the U.S. market, Kevin pays a lot of attention to the relationships of his cooperatives. In 2009, he distributed the market so that the customers could grow together with Pro-Built.
Pro-Built is our major manufacturer of our steel products, including bollards of various sizes. We can quote and custom build any size project and supply throughout Australia.
How do we source our products?
We have a trade assistant working for us currently based in Shanghai who will transfer to Australia shortly. She is responsible for developing and expanding our product offering.
Why are some of your products substantially cheaper?
Our products offer serious savings as we have used a simplistic method to source and better the freight rates by buying in bulk from the source – China, where all is made now!
What warranty or guarantee do you offer?
Some products are abused like... the “ol safety cones” and bollards. These products are replaced if the customer is not happy on delivery. Other products like steel bollards have to be installed correctly, and are built to industry standards. Some solar products will have warranties of up to 10 years on the solar panels on larger commercial applications.
At all times we will support our products - without customers we have no business.
We offer all the best styles of safety boots from the best boot company’s, each with their top 5 picks for Australia - Steel Blue, Oliver, Blundstone, Bata, Mack and the famous Dunlop Volley in both colours.
Are you going to cater for those with a shallow product base?
Sometimes to offer a restricted range can be better than not being able to supply all stocks in a huge range. We have workwear by D.N.C. which is still a privately owned Australian company with their eye on the ball to keep pace with our ever changing clothing requirements.
We offer only their top 12 movers through our website. To ensure a fast freight delivery we only want to offer standard stock service items - Jeans are by Australian made Blue Dog and we offer one style for men and one for the ladies.
We also have on offer the latest tradies boardies from King Gee - being an old tradie myself these are a ripper.
Can I get a better rate on freight?
Yes. Once again to keep this web-site easy to run and user friendly we have only used an average scenario on $ by Kg so ordering was not confusing. The charges are based on our cost only. If quantities and location are regular we will re-quote according to your needs.
