The past week has seen a flurry of carbon tax related activity with tales of assorted companies and industries applying price rises attributing the increase to the carbon tax.
One Australian company is bucking the trend by announcing a carbon tax price freeze.
Sydney based, Standard Communications, the manufacturer of Australian brands GME and Kingray, has declared that whilst the carbon price impost will increase its operating costs; the company has absolutely no intention of passing these charges on to its customers.
Paul Maloy, Standard Communications’ managing director: “Based on the available information, we have undertaken a rigorous analysis of the Gillard government’s decision, examining both the direct and indirect impact it will have on our operations. Given the nature of our Australian electronics manufacturing and distribution business, we can expect substantial increases in our electricity fees, fuel costs, transportation and raw materials.
None the less we fully understand that many business and households are doing it pretty tough at the moment; Standard Communications is 100% committed to supporting its customers and dealer network, consequently we have adopted this rather radical position and urge other companies to do the same.”
Standard Communications is a privately owned Australian business headquartered in the Sydney suburb of Gladesville. With over 200 employees, it designs and manufactures a broad range of two-way radio, marine electronics and television distribution equipment.
