Industrial motors and drives company Bonfiglioli is expanding with the opening of a new office and warehouse in Perth.
The new premises at 5/40 Inspiration Drive Wangara will be staffed by Manager Fred Whalley and Projects Engineer Bob Melville.
The extra space and service facilities will help service the rapidly growing demand in Western Australia, particularly from the resources and infrastructure sectors, says the Managing Director of Bonfiglioli Transmission (Australia) Pty Ltd, Mr Malcolm Lewis.
“We are experiencing strong demand across the board for our advanced drives technologies, including Trasmital planetaries and the innovative new heavy duty HDP parallel shaft and HDO bevel helical series,” says Mr Lewis, whose Australian Operation is celebrating its 20th anniversary of operation in Australia with growth of more than 30 per cent in the last year.
The global Bonfiglioli group is investing extensively in increased stock, and assembly and testing technology in Australia and New Zealand to further enhance product innovation, service and delivery times.
The latest Perth office opening and a recent $10 million investment in stock and technology comes after both Australia and New Zealand contributed record performances in 2007, says Mr Lewis.
The new Perth office will be supported by the company’s new national headquarters in Sydney with expanded stocking and local assembly and testing facilities.
