The new Heavy Industrial Solutions Division of SEW-EURODRIVE
adjoining their Tullamarine headquarters is in the final stages of development.
The Heavy Industrial Solutions Division is the latest in a series of investments made by SEW-EURODRIVE in resources and infrastructure since it began operations in the country in 1982.
The new 10,000m² Heavy Industrial Solutions Division will produce and service some of the largest drives in Australasia. The state-of-the-art facility includes cranes capable of handling 50-tonne loads, an automated two-pack paint line and storage capacity in excess of 3000 pallets.
According to Managing Director, Robert Merola, the $15 million investment will enable the company to increase local assembly, holding and servicing of products, allowing customers to become productive much quicker than was possible previously.
The Heavy Industrial Solutions Division will be officially unveiled as part of a special 30th anniversary dinner being held on November 1. Guests will include state politicians and dignitaries as well as overseas SEW company representatives, Melbourne company staff, state managers, selected existing customers and potential clients.
