Hello, and welcome to our new website! We hope you like what you see.
If you were a regular visitor to the old site, do not fear, you have still managed to find D.J. Batchen! We hope you will find this new layout easier to navigate, and perhaps easier on the eye too. Everything here is completely new, but it has been our aim to transport across all of the useful and necessary content from our old site. So if there is something from the old site you are looking for here but cannot find, please let us know. You can do so using our Contact page.
On the other hand, if you are a new visitor, we would again like to extend our welcome. Please stick around and have a look at our new site.
It strikes us that either way, you might have a few questions. We will try to answer some of them here.
1. Who Are You?
We are D.J. Batchen, a small manufacturing business located in Sydney, Australia, but exporting to
the world. We were founded in 1965 by David Batchen, and are managed today by his son, James. Over the last fifty years we have built up a tradition of excellence and innovation of which we are very proud, and continue to work hard at maintaining.
2. What Do You Do?
Simply: we make things. To be more specific, we know a lot about LPG, and many of our products involve the storage and use of it. Some examples include our flagship Auto LPG dispenser range (which you can find at motor vehicle service stations across Australia and around the world), and our innovative LPG vaporiser tanks.
We also run a fabrication and machining shop, where we make all sorts of things out of metal. For more detailed (and formal) information, visit our Products and Services page.
3. Why Have You Changed Your Website?
Many reasons. The old site was tricky to navigate. Its content was dated. It was not easy to update and maintain. It was not in any way mobile responsive. It didn't look great. Sometimes, it felt a bit like we were trying to operate in a world of iPhones and Surface Pros using this:
All of these reasons taken together mean we have to decided to completely refresh and update our online presence. You are seeing the results of that here. We hope it was worth the change.
4. This Is A Blog. Why Do You Have One?
We want to share with you who we are and what we know, and we want to do so in a way that is less formal and more personal than standard corporate press releases. Along the way it is our hope that you will find things here that are genuinely interesting and useful.
What can you expect? Well, for starters: more FAQ posts like this one, some stories from the early days of our company, a chance to meet some of the people who make us who we are, some of the manufacturing tips and tricks we've picked up over the years, and even some case studies looking at some of the bigger jobs we've done.
There will be more. Watch this space.
5. How Can I Get In Contact With You?
Whether you have an enquiry, a question, or some constructive "feedback", that's something we would love you to do. The easiest way is to head over to our Contact page, where you will find our email address and phone number. There's also a contact form, if you like that sort of thing.
