About Us


  • ALBOX was established in 1989.  It is Australian owned and operated.  It is a product development company specialising in the design of leading edge products for records management - office, archival and photographic.  
  • ALBOX uses polypropylene, either film, sheet, moulded or extruded in most of its products.
  • The ALBOX design program is to use environmentally friendly contemporary materials to replace both PVC and paperboard in stationery applications.  
  • ALBOX designs and manufactures in house plus outsources a small amount of production to approved manufacturers in Australia and China. This enables the appropriate supply source to be chosen to meet optimum price and performance standards requested by customers.
  • Marketing of ALBOX products has to date been focused in Australia to establish consumer acceptance but significant sales have been made to other countries. 
  • ALBOX has a challenging objective:  To create a records management system that will enable the continuum of records management from office to archive without re-packaging and use a system that is acid free, metal free, adhesive free and recyclable and a system that has a competitive price and the lowest whole of life cost.
