EVERY building project needs a strong base and you can make sure yours has a firm footing by sticking with the concrete reinforcement experts at Concrete Jointing Systems (CJS) Australia.
CJS is a spin off Danterr, a national supplier of concrete accessories that has been in operation for 20 years.
Creative director Zeb Armstrong said the business was formed at the start of 2019 as a way of providing access to a similar range of products that Danterr sells nationwide.
"We supply absolutely anything any concreter could need, less the runny grey stuff," Zeb said.
"Because of the buying power of Danterr, we can siphon some stock to CJS and therefore offer very competitive prices. We can sell top quality steel, bar and mesh, together with all other accessories for local concrete slab construction at civil and commercial prices."
Zeb said while prices do vary, CJS remains competitive price-wise across a vast range of products.
"If we don't have enough of a certain grade or width of steel, we can get it in very quickly," he said. "Because of the big range of mesh available for concrete, we generally have the yard completely full, to cater for multiple jobs at any given time."
The fundamentals of reinforcing concrete have been the same for over 200 years, but the industry is dipping its toe into what's possible.
"Insulated concrete homes are becoming more and more popular and we supply a system that builders can use on these projects," Zeb said. "Reinforcing fibres are gaining traction in the market and we have access to all new forms of this revolutionary technology.
"But the biggest thing heading into the future is safety on site. At CJS we have gained access to the best rebar safety system in the world, Nevosafe."
As with any business, there must be an element of trust between service provider and client, which Zeb believes CJS has built in its short time and can maintain.
"Our clients trust us on both price and supply," he said. "They trust we will have the supply at the right price, and we trust that they will come back to us based on their happy experiences in dealing with us.
"Our customers keep coming back because we offer a point of difference.
"We have a strong social media presence, and through this we offer our customers a range of products that are only available at CJS.
"We also have a dedicated team in the shop ready to assist, a truck ready to deliver anywhere and enough of anything anyone could ever need regarding concrete."
However, it is the personal one-on-one service staff provide that is a real standout.
"We try and entertain and keep clients happy for that brief moment in time that we are engaged in a transaction with them," Zeb said.
