Reports of our demise have greatly been exaggerated

Builders or Sub Contractors who have not allowed for a specified item or who are looking for a reason to substitute a cheaper inferior product to solve the problem of under-quoting or to increase their profit margin sometimes show a remarkable excess of poetic licence.

You may recognise some of these statements as reported to us by architects and clients:

  • “Sapphire has withdrawn from the project so we need to change finishes/product and supplier”.
  • “Sapphire has gone out of business so we need to change finishes/product and supplier”.
  • “Sapphire is shut for 2 months for major maintenance so we need to change finishes and supplier”.
  • “Sapphire is very busy with other orders for 2 months and cannot do my order so we need to change to another finish/product and supplier”.
  • “Sapphire has deleted the specified finish/product from their range so we need to change to another finish/product and supplier”.

If you have any doubt about what you are being told or are given one of these reasons for substituting a specified Sapphire product/finish with another product/ finish please contact us directly and we will gladly confirm our current production and availability status.

Sapphire Aluminium established in 1973 continues as a premier manufacturer and supplier of aluminium products and finishes from its state of the art facility at Somersby NSW.
