GP Graders Shipping Worldwide in 2020

GP Graders, based in Melbourne, Australia, is open and in full production, meeting orders for the 2020 season.  The Australian Federal Government is unlikely to impose measures which would see any slowdown of the manufacturing sector. “We are all healthy, all at work and undertaking overtime to get the jobs out the door,” says Stuart Payne, Director of GP Graders.

With most of Europe in lockdown and unable to fulfil customer orders, Australia is unlikely to face the same restrictions in the manufacturing sector. Australia being a more sparsely populated country with generally healthier people, bears little comparative similarities with Europe or China, where the outbreak of COVID-19 is at its most rampant. In fact, the infection curve in Australia is already showing signs of flattening with relatively few contracted cases and even fewer deaths.

With Europe closed, GP Graders’ sales enquiries for its AirJet® Vision range of grading software and machinery have been skyrocketing. 

“If this COVID-19 virus has taught us anything, it’s that it’s time to automate and take labour out of the equation. If a machine does a better job than a person, then buy the machine, it’s simple,” says Mr Payne. 

In the past week GP Graders have taken orders for sorting and packing machinery for apples, mangoes, cherry tomatoes, blueberries and cherries. 

“With the success of its AirJet Vision® technology, 2020 was on track to be a very good year but with this upturn in sales, it now appears it will be the best year yet for the company.”
