Our new look revealed
Still Aussie-designed and owned by the same team, our recent rebrand has been in development for almost a year now and we’re proud to reveal that to you now. Of course, we’d love to know what you reckon about it — but first, it might interest you to learn a little about the journey to how we got here.
The first Aussie-designed Paramount Toolbox came out of our workshop in 2011. A small side project of our parent company, we decided to leverage our expertise in designing warehouse storage and take it on the road. At the time, we’d found that other ute boxes were cutting corners on labour and materials (cheap ‘n nasty struts, locks, seals and hinges — plus some pretty dodgy welds). Worst of all, they weren’t suited to Aussie conditions!
In the same spirit of innovation that shaped the Hills Hoist and Winged Keel, we looked at how we could provide high-quality aluminium and steel ute boxes to the Aussie public for a fair price. Our clever design department put their heads together to create a toolbox line that would eliminate their biggest complaints — and Paramount Boxes was born.
We had a humble beginning. In our first year, we only had 5 designs (underbody toolboxes, job site, full lid, half lid and 1 minebox) as part of the range. But we also got invaluable feedback that helped us see what was working and what needed to be improved. Now we supply to hundreds of happy customers each year! Feedback has always been central to making Paramount Boxes the best ute toolboxes in Australia. It’s why you’ll find a link to get feedback/it’s why we send a feedback form to every customer, to help make improvements and add cool new features with each passing year.
Accompanying our newly updated style is a new logo that represents the side profile of our toolboxes in their various sizes, and a mountain ‘peak’, referencing the top quality expected from our name.
How our boxes are built for life on-site and off-road
Paramount Boxes have always aimed to provide customers with toolboxes that are built to withstand the Aussie environment. We’ve typically created products in steel to suit tough worksites, but are also evolving to aluminium to make better use of the one-tonne payload common for many Aussie utes. We have an industry-leading 2-year manufacturer’s warranty, which includes replacement parts, thanks to choices like making all our hinges from machine-grade galvanised steel.
What else? Our whale-tail compression handles are stylish yet functional. The compression feature works when you turn and fold down the handle shut, it compresses the door shut adding a nice tight weather seal. The handle is ergonomically shaped for larger grips. When the handle is in its closed position, it provides cover to the locking barrel, keeping it clear from any dust and dirt. You can also attach a padlock through the handle when closed, giving you a secondary locking point for keeping those thieves out!
Paramount gas struts use metal ball cups as standard (rather than cheap plastic) to withstand daily trade and use. Just like with our key locks, we fit struts with dust caps as standard to reduce buildup in the mechanism. Stationary once in the fully opened position, the pressure chosen to perfectly counter the lid weight and size, whether you are choosing a mine site box or gullwing type.
We’re all about keeping your tools and gadgets well protected — as well as your fingers and noggin.
Our underbody toolboxes use a 4mm pinch weld rubber seal / rubber bubble seals with a dampener. Actually, all of our toolboxes do, as a way to keep your tools and equipment dry and protected from dust and debris. The precision-fitted and water-resistant seal keeps your equipment safe even in cases where you need a 4WD snorkel to get to your campsite.
As you’ve come to expect, Paramount toolboxes are easy to fit to any ute tray. You’ll find plenty of adjustable interior storage options to help you maximise space and make it easier to find what you need quickly and easily. Our universal design means that, when taken care of, your toolboxes can come with you to your next ute… and the one after that.
