Successful pivoting efforts from businesses in Melbourne’s East

Combined Building Maintenance from Boronia, typically focussed on mould removal & remediation as their service offering. As part of the remediation, an antimicrobial fog is implemented on the affected areas to ensure surfaces remain germ free for an extended period of time. During the COVID-19 outbreak , it was noted the long periods of time that the virus remained on a plastic or steel surface. Their next step: introducing “Environment Fogging”, a non-volatile solution to creating lower risk of transmission in office, community, & domestic spaces. The treatment that is applied as a fog is called Healthguard AMIC & leaves  soft / hard surfaces with a germ-Prospect / 7 free residue for an extended length of time. Many businesses & venues have so far utilised this new service, such as Zimmerman Industries (Lilydale), Knox City Football Club and Mooroolbark Soccer Club. Combined Building Maintenance highlighted that cleaning techniques are not stagnant & can adapt to new challenges as they arise.

Dusty Barrel’s Eye on Community

When the ATO rang early April asking if fledgling craft distillery, Dusty Barrel had capacity to produce hand sanitiser, Nick and Michelle Hope didn’t take too long to think it over before saying yes. This small business located in Macclesfield, is founded on a sense of community & here was an opportunity to contribute when needed most. “We got into it pretty quickly for two reasons, healthcare and other essential services needed the product, but we also saw an opportunity to cultivate community relationships and get our brand noticed,”. It wasn’t an easy operation but with help from the ATO, Yarra Ranges Council and other local businesses, Nick was able to produce Dusty Barrel Distillery Hand Sanitiser and secure contracts with local schools & businesses, also available online. Dusty Barrel aims to produce unique handcrafted spirits from locally sourced fruit and grains. Nick is confident that the connections made through this unexpected side venture can only benefit them in the long run. “By buying and employing locally, we will reduce our carbon footprint and support the local community for the long term,” said Nick
