PILA About Us

Captain’s Huddle

As the proud owner of an Australian Made manufacturing business, I’d like to introduce you to PILA and the brands we represent.

Our business journey began 2 decades ago and the company has evolved significantly over the years, yet our core values have remained consistent; delivering high-quality, safe, affordable, Australian Made commercial sports and streetscape products.

The market sectors we service have also matured over time and we are now seeing a strong shift away from imported throw-away products that don’t stand up to the rigors of the Australian environment and are non-compliant with our stringent safety and manufacturing standards.

I’ve spent valuable time ‘in the trenches’ alongside our team, designing and building products, installing and advising on-site, and in the office training our newest recruits. I’m still as eager as the day we started to make a difference in our industry, continue to be innovative and set benchmarks.

For me, customer service is where it’s at. Our team is invested in solving your equipment ‘problems’ by providing solutions that ensure your project is finished on time, on budget, and most importantly, to the highest quality. Our team share my values and determination to achieve excellence in all we do. We have a wealth of experience in manufacturing and customer service and I truly believe our team is world-class. They’re also a genuinely lovely bunch of people.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to deliver countless products to many satisfied clients. It’s genuinely incredible to look back on what we’ve been able to accomplish.

As a family business, an enormous amount of credit must be given to Siân and our core team. We look forward to helping with your enquiry, no matter how large or small.

Best regards,

Reece Wooldridge
