Expanz International Pty Ltd

This business, established in 1994 as Maleplas International, has a growing portfolio of satisfied customers with whom we do repeat business.

We currently import and distribute expandable polystyrene (EPS), engineering plastics and other light weight materials, as raw materials or finished products. In addition we offer consulting services to the EPS moulding industry in Australia, New Zealand and specialised projects overseas.

We are an SME, focussed on growth of our polymer and machinery portfolio as well as our geographic reach. We continuously look for opportunities to add to our existing core business and competencies aiming to grow our revenues in three ways:

  • Seeking new agencies and customers to join our business to create organic growth
  • Looking to employ or establish a business relationship with people that have proven commercial /sales skills with strong supplier and customer relationships
  • Identifying strategic acquisitions

Since 2004, the staff at Expanz have been selected to enable the business to position itself for growth,  ensuring experience and talent in the key disciplines of Supply Chain, Customer Service, Sales, Technical and Finance.

The expertise we have developed includes:

  • Procurement – purchasing a range of products to meet manufacturer or end-user specifications at competitive prices
  • Logistics imports – managing the importation and distribution of our imports with freight forwarders and transport providers, primarily around Australia and New Zealand, to ensure a timely and reliable service that is provided in a transparent manner to avoid nasty surprises
  • Logistics exports – Our network of contacts enables us to operate as exporters of products as easily as importers
  • Communication – we pride ourselves in keeping our customers informed anticipating needs and resolving problems
  • Value for Money – the sum of our offerings is aimed at trying to offer the best solutions, with the most appropriate products or services in a cost effective and timely manner
  • Managing spot and forward contracts on foreign exchange exposures purchasing in USD, Euro and NZD and selling AUD, USD and NZD

If there is a need for us to provide a service that is a one-off or repeat business for current or prospective customers, we will deliver on our promise.
