Safetech has nearly completed a major extension and upgrade of its factory involving the addition of extra space as well as new equipment and production resources. The expanded premises will be completed in October.
Company Operations Manager Chris White comments that the upgraded manufacturing facility will have an additional 300m² of space, increasing the total manufacturing area to 3,000m². Safetech will also be adding new handling equipment and production resources for increased and more efficient manufacturing capacity.
As Australia’s leading scissor lifts manufacturer, the expanded facility will improve their ability to manufacture larger, more complex lifts with greater efficiency and speed.
Safetech has seen steady growth in orders for scissor lifts and goods hoists along with some very large custom scissor lift orders. The company is currently designing and building two 25-tonne scissor lifts with more than 12 metres of travel.
A major supplier of lifting equipment to Australian industry, Safetech manufactures scissor lifts, goods hoists, dock lifts and building lifts among others.
Safetech’s design team comprising of 9 engineers and a skilled production group uses advanced computer design tools and processes to build complex lifts.
