Dingo Fencing Systems, like most fencing businesses following the bushfires, has been busy of late.
The companys award winning fencing machines have been in demand and now have machines and installers working in fire-affected areas, including Kangaroo Island.
General manager for Dingo Fencing Systems, Kent Osmotherly, is based in Albury and said the demand for replacement fencing had been unprecedented.
"People are looking for fences that can be put up quick, that are effective and long-lasting," Mr Osmotherly said.
People are looking for a better alternative than traditional pine and steel posts that will last longer and be more cost effective in the long run.Dingo Fencing Systems general manager Kent Osmotherly
"Our main inquiry has been for exclusion fencing, bordering areas like national parks where there are feral animals such as pigs, as well as roos and wallabies."
The company has just returned from Kangaroo Island, where it delivered a fencing machine to aid with the establishment of fences after more than over 200,000 hectares was burnt.
The island traditionally uses pine posts, which have limited life due to being timber and much of the pine posts were burnt in the fire.
The Dingo Fencing System uses a mechanised fencing process that utilises aluminium posts that are fire resistant, do not rust and do not rot or get eaten by termites.
It produces a serious fence that will keep sheep and cattle where they are supposed to be and, when electricity is added, help control feral animals and rogue stock with little maintenance required.
The company now has installation machines across the eastern seaboard working mainly in fire-affected areas.
"People are looking for a better alternative than traditional pine and steel posts that will last longer and be more cost effective in the long run," Mr Osmotherly said.
"At the end of the day we offer a cost-effective system that can be stood in place quicker than traditional fencing methods as we have engineered the large labour component required to build fences."
The Dingo Fencing System can be seen first hand in areas like Tumbarumba, with the company having a machine working locally in the Corryong area.
