About Us

The Chainlink Story

Chainlink commenced operations in 1997 to meet the skilled labour needs of the food and beverage packaging industry.

For over two decades, we have built a reputation based on trust and dependable service, helping many of Australia’s most iconic brands. Founding Director, Craig Cooper, who started his career as a Fitter/Machinist in 1983, understood that there are two Achilles heels in every production facility; firstly, the increasing complexity of machinery that’s prone to mechanical failure; and secondly, the challenge of maintaining a resource pool of skilled tradespeople. These challenges have continued to grow for all companies in the FMCG packaging industry, and it is these challenges we help our clients overcome every day.

Our clients depend on us to provide sound advice to help them manage their production facility more profitably.

Bringing deep industry knowledge to the table, Chainlink supports many of Australia’s leading FMCG brands in several key ways:

  • Providing urgent repairs and breakdown
  • Providing qualified tradespeople to help you
    meet demand
  • Reducing the burden of compliance, training,
    and recruitment costs
  • Bridging the knowledge gap through specialist
    skills and experience
