Rose Valley Steel Works

What is your main business activity?

Metal fabrication, steel sales, shed design, sales and erection.

How has the NBN impacted on the way you do business?

Since we connected to the NBN we are now able to do our shed design quotes in a couple of minutes rather than 5 to 10 minutes, and can use a remote control of my computer at work from home using my 3D CAD program, and have noticed that it is nearly like being there in the office.

In what way has the NBN impacted on your work/life balance?

4 days a week I am able to drop my kids to school in the mornings. Having a good remote connection enables me to connect to my computer at work before I drop them off and am only missing 15 minutes of work rather than 1 hr. And I probably do more from home now which is better than having to spend more time at the office.

Do you see any opportunities into the future for your business as a result of the NBN?

Yes, we aim to have a much larger internet presence for sales.

Are there any other ways we can help grow your business and to build Armidale's future Digital Economy?

Financial assistance.
