Fairview Remedies COVID-19 Cladding Supply Fears


Fairview has moved to alleviate Coronavirus-driven stockholding shortages of compliant cladding sourced from east Asia, by boosting the extent and capability of our manufacturing network.

As industry sources fear that some providers are running perilously low on primary finish stocks of cladding, Fairview’s large stock-holding and extended supply partnerships with quality manufacturers from southwest Asia and Europe provide security of cladding supply for re-clad projects.

Fairview’s risk team had identified single-origin/China sourcing as a potential industry concern some time ago. The ISO 9001, compliant European supply has been manufacturing high-quality product for our UK partners for several years.

Fairview CEO Greg Stewart commented:

As a sector leader, Fairview has invested in a large stock-holding of compliant cladding as supply surety is a priority for re-clad requirements.

As product quality, consistency and compliance is Fairview’s key priority (and for our clients and industry regulators), every measure has been taken to ensure strict specification and certification mandatories have been met. This includes engaging global testing and quality assurance organisation UL to undertake third party Quality Assurance auditing.

Fairview’s enlarged manufacturing and production base now removes concerns over the supply of compliant cladding, and is set to further boost Fairview’s existing 200,000 m2 local warehouse stock-holding, which is already the largest in Australia.
