Client testimonial

I tendered Australia-wide for the supply and delivery of palisade fencing and Southern Wire was the successful tenderer. Southern Wire have now supplied and installed palisade fencing to seven Horizon Power substations. As all of these substations were in service with voltages from 11kV to 132kV it was critical that all work was co-ordinated and done in a safe manner and that the integrity of the existing fence was not breached at any time. On every occasion the installation crew have been very friendly and professional to deal with and I would not hesitate to use them on future projects.
