Aside from farming equipment, fertilizers, stock feed, and pesticides are amongst the basic purchases that every farm owner in Australia must make as an investment for healthy livestock and abundant crops. Many, however, (especially the new ones) end up losing money due to improper storage of their supplies. It is important to remember that fertilizers and pesticides are just as dangerous as they are beneficial; when incorrectly handled these chemicals turn into dangerous poisons that can only succeed in killing your plants and livestock. It is therefore extremely important to exercise caution when handling these products.

Heavy mining equipment are not only expensive, but also hard to get. If a piece of equipment suddenly breaks down and the replacement is not due to arrive for another few days, the entire operation can be put on hold until replacement arrives. To make things worse, sudden requests for delivery of heavy equipment, like draglines and mass excavators, will require extra payment for permits and transportation fees since mine sites are commonly in remote and hard to reach areas. Not only are you losing money through delays in operation, but you also have to pull out more cash just to get things back into order.

For the past couple of years, countries around the world have witnessed their fair share of devastations and natural disasters, displacing millions of people, destroying farmlands, and just generally impeding economic and industrial growth. A typical example is the Australian landscape which is often hit by severe floods, landslides, and wild fires, causing financial distress for its inhabitants and communities at large. The Australian economy is one of the largest mixed market economies in the world, driven partly by its mining and agricultural sectors, featuring a lot of private investments and participation. To combat some of the problems brought about by these disasters, some forward thinking companies introduced dome shelters, specifically designed to solve the problems of warehousing and transporting large equipment back and forth. These shelters have been beneficial in three of Australia’s economic indicators: the industrial, rural agriculture, and mining sectors.

When people think about Australian industry, they often think of great factories and the like. They’re a source of a large amount of revenue.
