Local Manufacturing at Monty Compost Co

Local Manufacturing at Monty Compost Co

As consumers become increasingly concerned with the environmental impact of their purchases, Australian start-up Monty Compost Co is ahead of the curve with locally manufactured Monty Monitor, a smart composting device that transmits compost health data to the user's phone. By keeping production close to home, Monty has unlocked the ability to mitigate the carbon emissions associated with shipping and unsustainable overseas practices.

The rise of globalisation has led to an increase in the number of products manufactured overseas, resulting in a complex supply chain that has significant environmental and social costs. 

However, by using various local manufacturing companies, Monty is able to minimise their carbon footprint, reduce waste, and support local communities. Every Monty Monitor injects around $100 into the Australian economy in materials and hourly wages in the manufacturing industry.

Supporting locally made products is not only important for local businesses, but for the consumer. Consumers are becoming more conscious of their purchases such as where the product comes from, the manufacturing process and its environmental impact. 

That's why Monty works closely with AMEC Plastics, a Queensland based manufacturing company used to assemble the outer enclosure of the Monty Monitor as well as local PCB (printed circuit board) manufacturer Hetech. Working alongside local manufacturers allows our CEO and Founder, Ashley Baxter, to visit facilities and be further involved with the production process of Monty Monitor.

In addition to environmental benefits, local manufacturing also provides social benefits to the local community. 

Locally made products are also typically better in quality as the manufacturing process is closely regulated according to the country's standards and business owners are able to be more involved in production. 

Although local production costs can be higher than overseas manufacturing, there can sometimes be limited access to certain materials and resources. However, Monty is committed to finding ways to overcome these challenges, ensuring that products are made in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. 

Our smart compost monitoring device, Monty Monitor is now available to purchase in Australia and the USA. Head to our website to get yours now during our special sale!
