Wayne Hoiles, Managing Director of Fuchs Lubricants (Australasia) welcomed Fuchs Group Chairman and CEO Stefan Fuchs and Fuchs Petrolub AG Executive Board Member Dr Georg Lingg to the 2012 Fuchs Australasia National Sales Conference.
Mr Fuchs took the opportunity to announce a significant investment and expansion of the Melbourne and Newcastle facilities. In his presentation to the staff, he detailed plans for a $5.5 million expansion of the Melbourne facility and a major redevelopment in Newcastle.
Part of a global investment program by the Fuchs Group, the announcement of additional investment into the region follows the launch last year of a world class Regional Lubricant Laboratory and Technical Centre in Melbourne, boosting local and regional lubricant development and sales.
According to Wayne Hoiles, the initiatives announced at the conference testify to the great track record of Fuchs Australasia, and the Fuchs Group’s commitment to the region.
The National Sales Conference was held at Mansion Hotel and Spa in Werribee Park and featured three days of technical training, new product information, corporate updates and marketing initiatives. To coincide with the conference, 60 of Fuchs’ Australian and New Zealand commercial customers, chosen as part of an incentive program were invited to meet CEO Stephen Fuchs in Melbourne and flown to the Clipsal 500 V8 Supercar event in Adelaide as VIP guests.
