SEW-EURODRIVE is expanding their business with a new building acquisition to house their Industrial Gears (IG) division.
The new site is located adjacent to SEW-EURODRIVE’s headquarters and will be fitted to produce and service the largest drives available in Australasia. The newly acquired site will be fitted with cranes capable of handling 50 tonne loads, automated two-pack paint line and storage capacity for in excess of 3000 pallets.
“The company is very upbeat about the future and this investment will consolidate our future growth expected within the heavy industrial drive sector,” says SEW-EURODRIVE Managing Director, Robert Merola.
Merola believes the new site addition would help reduce lead time by weeks, or even months, and would allow customers to become productive quicker compared to previous times.
“Stocks will be increased therefore reducing time to market. You can imagine two months production in a mine is a significant amount,” says Merola.
SEW-EURODRIVE will be rolling out the site’s fitting over the next 12 months. According to Merola, the company is aiming to officially open the complex in conjunction with SEW-EURODRIVE’s 30th anniversary next year.
“Our goal is to officially open the new complex in conjunction with the 30th anniversary next year”, Merola said.
“We can celebrate two magnificent milestones in Australia.”
