Exhibition Hire (Expo Hire) has opened a 4000 square metre state-of-the-art production facility in Melbourne to further enhance its design, construction and maintenance of custom exhibition stands.
The new facility in Altona is home to 12 production staff and replaces the company’s 1500 square metre Port Melbourne premises.
The facility includes a new CNC router and spray booth, along with additional space for stand maintenance and storage to accommodate Exhibition Hire / Expo Hire’s most ambitious and complex custom projects.
“Custom exhibition stands are growing more elaborate each year and the move to Altona provides us with the machinery and space to undertake any project, no matter how large or intricate it may be,” said Jim Delahunty, CEO, Exhibition Hire / Expo Hire.
Exhibition Hire has made its mark on Australia’s exhibition floors this year with a series of innovative and boundary-pushing custom stands.
The company’s double-storey stand for Etihad Airways, which incorporated a replica airport lounge and Formula One model car, proved a highlight of the Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo in February. Exhibition Hire's stand for Woolworths, which featured a company logo made entirely from fresh limes, was one of several award winners at the 2009 Sydney Royal Easter Show.
“Exhibition Hire / Expo Hire has established a position at the forefront of custom stand design and construction in Australia and the new production home in Melbourne, which complements our Peakhurst facility in Sydney, will ensure we maintain this position in the years ahead,” said Delahunty.
