Holding the Fort in Site Blackout


The major storms in Sydney on Wednesday night 11th March 2015 hit the Dowell Smithfield site in a big way. On coming to work early on Thursday morning staff found the storms had cut all electricity to the site.


Aware of the impact this was going to have on our customers Dowell staff and management teams pulled together quickly to make alternative work arrangements. Dowell’s cloud based IT systems meant that working remotely was a possibility with staff either working from home, on mobile devices or at the offices of Dowell’s sister companies G.James and Wunderlich Plastics.


Power crews worked for 2 days with the power coming back on late Friday. Just in time for the production teams to work the weekend to get production schedules back on track.


Every business will face some unavoidable challenges at times and is during those tough times that teams and people show what they are made of. Well done to the Dowell Smithfield team!
