Redox founder dies age 88

It is with deep sadness that we announce that Redox founder, Roland Coneliano passed away peacefully last week aged 88.

A true Australian success story, Roland immigrated in 1965 and grew Redox from a small indenting agency to a powerhouse of the world chemical industry over the 50 years with him at the helm. Retiring in 2015 due to poor health, he still marvelled at the successes of the business he created and deeply appreciated the Redox staff who continue his vision.

He will be remembered for his indomitable work ethic, mercurial wit, boundless enthusiasm and innate ability to forge a deal.

A beautiful private commemoration was held to celebrate his life and accomplishments this week with his family, closest friends and long-time employees of Redox in attendance.

The Coneliano family thanks everyone for their well wishes which have been sent from around the globe, an indication of the high esteem in which he is held by business partners and friends.

Roland is survived by his wife, five children, fifteen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Ten family members are currently employed at Redox and are dedicated to the future growth and success of the business with hundreds of years of combined experience.

Robert Coneliano who joined the family business in 1971 takes over as Chairman.

Customer Notice - Hanjin Shipping

On Thursday a major container line Hanjin Shipping (Korea) entered bankruptcy. Many of Hanjin‘s ships have been seized by Charterers, port authorities or other parties.

It is still unclear the consequences of this on Redox cargo but early information indicates that dozens of shipments are affected and may face indeterminate delays and possibly increased costs.

 

Redox‘s freight team expect some uplift of container shipping rates from other lines in response to Hanjin‘s collapse.

We appreciate customer‘s kind understanding as we investigate the impacts and will be in close communication with all customers affected as soon as we have firm details.
