At a time when Australia's manufacturing industry is feeling squeezed by cheap imports and rising labour costs, garden care equipment manufacturer Atom Industries, is enjoying strong sales, both nationally and internationally.
With several worldwide patents applying to its products, and a host of global design awards, Atom's range of Edgers and Tillers are in demand providing customers several unique and good features.
One of the good things about Atom's range of products is their ease of use and time-saving benefits.
Atom's lawn edgers, tillers and golf bunker edgers all feature a unique height adjustable, single rear wheel design which gives them wheelbarrow-like manoeuvrability, making them easy to use, and, saves time. The Atom range is also ergonomically designed and light in weight, which reduces fatigue and strain on the operator's body.
Developed and tested for tough Australian conditions, Atom's product line-up was built to meet the rigours of both domestic and commercial use; their strong, durable construction provides many years of trouble-free use.
Adding to Atom's reputation for tough products is the specification of Honda engines for all its four-stroke models, namely the innovative mini four-stroke GX25 and GX35 engines. Rated at 1.1 and 1.6 horsepower respectively, the GX25 and GX35 provide clean and quiet performance, as well as low fuel consumption.
According to Honda, it has enjoyed a strong working relationship with Atom Industries for several years.
Atom has had an association with Honda for about eight years now, and during this time, the feedback both Atom and Honda have received from customers of Atom's Honda-powered products has been good.
As manufacturers of high quality power equipment, Atom will only specify premium engines for its high end products; it is delighted that Honda is Atom's four-stroke power of choice, and is confident its engines will continue to perform well for them.
Atom sells a large portion of equipment into commercial applications, but domestic sales of four-stroke models are becoming increasingly popular. Factors such as rising fuel prices and not having to mix fuel is attractive, particularly if the user has other four-stroke equipment.
Atom Industries will look to further strengthen its position in the industry in coming months with the introduction of several new products along with expansion of its current range.
