Congratulations on your retirement
Our beloved co-worker of 35 years George Abraham is starting a new chapter in his life. No one is more deserving of a long and happy retirement filled with relaxation and enjoyment.
George has always been a hard worker and a terrific friend who always made every customer and co-worker a priority. He built a special bond with everyone he met by being keenly interested in their wellbeing and needs.
George, known for his infectious smile and joyful spirit, is the ‘guy’ who never has a bad word to say about anyone, is eternally positive and proactively goes about ‘doing the right thing’ by everyone.
We wish you the all the best and thank you for your many years of dedication, enthusiasm, team spirit and friendship.
YOU WILL BE MISSED

Farewell to Lloyd Ingram
On the 31st of July, we said farewell to our Melbourne warehouse manager Lloyd Ingram. Lloyd started working with Alloys International in 1986, and has been responsible for shipping out most of your orders since then. Lloyd is retiring after almost 35 years in the business, looking forward to spending more time with his family and playing more golf. All of Alloys International and Avweld Australasia thanks Lloyd for his service.
Avweld would like to take this opportunity once again to give you an update on our operating situation with regards to the COVID-19 epidemic.
As COVID-19 is continuing to disrupt the economy throughout Australia and particularly Victoria, Avweld is taking all precautions necessary to enable continued operations through this challenging time.
We are hiring new staff, improving and expanding our facilities and ensuring all our jobs go out on time. Production is largely unaffected as we are taking all the necessary health precautions.
All visitors and contractors are required to complete a COVID health checklist prior to entry to the facilities. Social distancing, appropriate cleaning & sanitisation are being maintained at all times on site.
Our Sales Engineers and staff are contactable by email or phone as usual, although most are working from home wherever possible. All meetings are being held via phone/video where possible.
Thank you for your ongoing support, and please keep your family and friends safe.
Updates from Avweld
Avweld would like to take this opportunity to give you an update on our operating situation with regards to the COVID-19 epidemic.
Our primary concern is the health and safety of all staff, customers, suppliers and their families. In constantly changing conditions, we continue to strive to meet our customers’ needs and delivery timeframes, in a safe and controlled manner. We are continually monitoring the advice of the State and Federal Governments, and the WHO.
Currently we are operating at full capacity. Factory production is as normal, but with increased social distancing, cleaning and santization. Office staff are working from home wherever possible. All interstate travel has been postponed, unless absolutely required. Sales engineers are available for local on-site consultations, but are aiming to conduct as much business by phone as possible.
Our supply chains are currently uninterrupted, with all key products available as normal. Please be aware that due to the dramatic decrease in the Australian Dollar this year (~15% since January), we will have no choice but to pass along some price rises on future quotes. Please contact your sales representative with any questions.
We will keep you informed as the situation develops. Until then, please keep yourselves and your families and friends healthy and safe.
