Thank you for your interest in our concrete fence posts.

We’re just following up on your interest in our concrete fence post systems.
This email will give you an introduction to our products at Australian Concrete Posts Pty Ltd [ACP].
As a retailer on the forefront of new innovations in agricultural practises and products we know you will appreciate the [ACP] Concrete Fence System as a great alternative and see the win-win scenario for both yourself as retailer and the people on the land.
[ACP] prestressed concrete fence posts and strainers are driveable, strength tested and quality assured, plus engineer certified.
The benefits of standard concrete posts are well known – concrete posts are termite, fire and rot resistant. However, your customers will appreciate the fact that [ACP] posts have extra features that make them easy to sell and great value for money.
A few reasons to stock [ACP] concrete posts in your store are listed below;
At our factory in Northern NSW, we manufacture 900 posts a day – and supply throughout QLD and NSW. There is stock ready for delivery.
Strong and Durable.
All [ACP] posts are prestressed and made with a certified 40MPA concrete mix. That’s two times stronger than regular house slab concrete.
Every [ACP] fence post has two strands of high tensile high carbon prestressed Australian Made wire. The [ACP] Strainer posts contain four strands. The design and shape of the post ensures that there is maximum coverage of the prestressed wire. This contributes to the strength of the post.
The concrete posts are strong and designed to be used with a Post Driver after drilling a 3 to 4-inch pilot hole. We encourage you to visit our website at www.concreteposts.com.au and links below to view the demonstration of how easy they are to drive in with a standard tractor or hydraulic post driver.
Pulling barbed wire through the posts is demonstrated using video and also in the Product Handling Guides. The video demonstrates how the concrete posts withstand heavy gauge IOWA wire and also the recommended method to thread the wire.
Easy End Strainer Assemblies
Our patented bracket system makes it super easy to put the whole End Strainer Assemblies together using only a spanner.
Our posts are not only for fences, but also products that will build stockyards, feedlots, orchard netting support and trellis’s, and our bracket system makes post and rail fencing super quick and easy too! http://concreteposts.com.au/assemblies/
Aesthetic and practical.
The clean and smooth finish makes the posts easy to handle. They look great, both in your store and in the paddock!
Predrilled holes are uniform in position, size and shape – they will fit any standard wire configuration and tensioning system on the market.
Strainers and fence posts are available in various sizes and hole configurations.
They Sell Themselves
[ACP] have invested in good marketing strategies and customer support. We know that once the farmers and fencing contractors handle and use the [ACP] post, they spread the word. The first order is usually followed up with bigger orders when they see for themselves the benefits and how easy they are to handle. They will save time and money, with no need for drilling holes or replacing rotten posts. Building a fence with concrete posts is building an asset on their property.
Retailers who are doing well with our product also see the bigger picture. When they deliver the fence posts, they have a unique opportunity to sell and deliver other essentials to the property. Essentials like, fencing wire, gates, water tanks, fertiliser, feed etc.
Simply by changing the type of fence post used, the benefits to the farmer includes;
- A post that will outlast the timber post that’s often eaten by termites or ants
- A post that will outlast the steel posts that rust and corrode
- Save time and equipment when they don’t need to split or pre drill holes in the post
- Save money when they won’t have to replace rotted, burnt or split posts and re-thread wire in several years’ time.
