FLEXIBILITY, PASSION, PARTNERSHIP with the Gerard Family
I am new to the industry and have had quite a few large quote requests lately for Trader items.
There has also been a growing interest into the automation, Zimi, technology and I found the information provided last night (Trader Unboxed Trade Show) to be very beneficial and will assist me greatly to do my job and support my customers request and enquiries – as well as some of my own purchases.
Thanks again to the gentlemen for last night, and all who assisted arranging the information evening. It’s always good to leave somewhere having gained knowledge and knowing my time was well spent - not wasted.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Adam Boston from Adelaide. He is a fantastic tech support and really appreciate his professionalism toward my project I had up here at Barham.
I wanted to thank you and of course Simon for the awesome evening at the recent WA Trader Unboxed event. I found it quite liberating that companies like Trader are big enough to offer top products yet small enough to engage so personally.
I am blown away by Powermesh and have ordered a few bits to sample - recon this is going to be a game changer for my business.
If you see Simon please convey my thanks for a great evening at the Saint last night. Thanks

"Hi Trader Team,
Aaron here from Redline Electrical. I thought you would appreciate this great feedback!
Thanks to Trader’s Powermesh, we were able to create multi-way switching to replace an underground cable fault without undertaking costly repairs to our client.
We installed both internal and external Powermesh switches, and created new 2- way switching to a Powermesh power point (via Behaviour Link) for garden lighting.
This also enabled our client to schedule timing for their garden lights and ability to have control via their mobile phones which blew our client away! Great product!”
As the company owner I have insisted we use Clipsal from day one, as I have always opted for quality equipment. I noticed your Trader products not long ago, and reluctantly broke the habit to try a box of your Puma double GPO’s. Since then I have now ordered and installed a number of your trade packs in our housing development work. I have installed your products in our high end residential jobs, including your new dimmers, and am looking forward to trying out your buffalo range with our industrial clients.
From a tradesmans point of view your products are second to none, you have fixed any minor issues your competitors still hadn’t, you have listened to the market and created something we have all been asking for. Fantastic!
We have also had clients commenting on how impressive the dimmers are. I am pleased to say you have earned our business and our stock is now Trader!
I hope the feedback is welcomed, and please keep doing what you guys are doing.
Finally someone’s prepared to take on board the needs/wants of the contractors. Trader lead the way with new design making the humble ‘surface socket’ easier and faster to use.
The Trader brand has been a real bonus to the electrical field. Especially, can I highlight the HYPP1GF (surface socket). These are perfect for retrofitting existing lighting where you pull out old downlights or changing over from a batten holder to downlight etc. The terminals are all in a row with a well thought insulation barrier which must be ‘clicked in’ before you can fit the base. Then there’s the ‘easy fit’ base. When I say easy fit, it’s easy to fit and to take off again should you need to. (hopefully no more screwdrivers through my hand trying to remove bottom plates etc). They easily fit through a normal downlight cut out, so you can work from a ladder instead of having to go in the roof, even with a few cables and cable ties attached etc. Circuit identification is becoming more and more important. Trader realise this and have added space on the front of the socket outlet to 2 – IPA labels visible even with a plug in the socket.
Thanks and well done Trader and I look forward to more great products in the future.

Had a great solution for a customer recently ...
They had just had a pool built, they had to put the pump house in a certain area. It was a decent distance from being handy especially for the pool lights
... anyway we installed a Powermesh double power point, which had the pump in one side and lights in the other. That enabled us to set schedules on the pump and we put a powermesh light switch inside that was behavior linked to the other side of the GPO.
And just like that you can control it from the entry to the pool, via google and the app!
