Our Story at Barwon Safety Geelong
Barwon Safety is a local Geelong company, owned and operated by Scott Uebergang who has vast experience in the supply of Safety Equipment and Workwear.
Barwon Safety commenced trading in August 2000 as a mobile ‘On Site’ van operation, which travelled to worksites offering safety products to various industries. Barwon Safety traded successfully, and by August 2001 only a year later accepted the opportunity to purchase Geelong Safety, operating from 8 Separation St, Nth Geelong.
Barwon Safety today employs a handful of knowledgeable and experienced staff, and utilises a fully computerised warehouse and stock system. In addition to our branch operation in Separation St., Barwon Safety continues to utilise the On Site service, with 1 fully stocked mobile van to cater for immediate delivery requirements. Our stock holding is designed to cater for our customer needs and in particular our major customer products are held in reserve to satisfy our current contractual requirements. Our customer base is in the surrounding Geelong areas as well as South-western Victoria including the country areas of Warrnambool, Cobden and Colac. Barwon Safety also exports safety products to Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.
Barwon Safety recognises the importance of issues that relate to Occupational Health and Safety. Our company is dedicated to ensuring that our customers are made aware of any technical advances in safety products and our staff place a strong emphasis on customer service. We’re a one stop shop for some, but building trusting and lasting relationships with our clients is what we do best here at Barwon Safety.
