THE international Bonfiglioli industrial motors and drives group is more than doubling the size of its Australasian headquarters.
The Managing Director of Bonfiglioli Transmission (Australia), Malcolm Lewis, said the company had purchased 10,000sqm of land next to the new M7 orbital motorway to house the new multi-million dollar facilities.
These will include additional production capabilities where more than 2300sqm of factory space is being purpose-built to cater for existing and new ranges of technology.
A 5000sqm warehouse and assembly centre will follow to provide additional stocking and engineering capacity to respond to customer demands.
Some of the new products to be handled at the new headquarters will include Europe’s latest heavy duty parallel and bevel helical gear reducer technology.
“In order to be able to assemble these new products locally, Bonfiglioli will install a new 12.5 tonne overhead crane in the workshop assembly area,” Lewis said.
