Vacuum tanker customisability and quality assurance

Imported vacuum tankers often don’t fit the needs of the Australian market. Your business has unique requirements. A pre-made and packaged solution didn’t have you in mind during the design and build phases.
Vorstrom does. We discuss with you what you need and what you don’t – providing guidance and tweaks that will deliver you the right vacuum tanker unit.
You can also feel more confident in the quality of your product. At Vorstrom, we have external assessors who carry out testing on our products. This independent tick of approval ensures that we always exceed Australian Standards.

Being an Australian business means having your ear to the ground. It’s about understanding your customers in a way that overseas companies can’t match.

For example, Vorstrom has collects valuable feedback from our clients and extensively researches the demands of Australian businesses. We’ve developed over 40 different multi-purpose vacuum units for all industries and applications.

Local manufacturers may also be more capable of meeting your production demands. You’ll receive your unit much faster than via international shipping. Vorstrom is currently increasing its facilities in Australia to double production output.
