Minister heralds compressor company as industry Champion

Champion Compressors has been officially recognised as an important representative of the Victoria manufacturing and processing industry, with the Victorian Minister for Industry and Trade attending the company’s new headquarters official launch.

The Minister, Martin Pakula, presented Champion Compressors with a commemorative plaque to display on the company’s residence at the launch of its new, purpose-built headquarters and warehouse in Dandenong.

At the launch, Pakula said that Champion Compressors had demonstrated how local manufacturers could succeed in spite of challenging global conditions.

“This new investment is a vote of confidence in the future of manufacturing in Victoria and represents another milestone in the extraordinary growth of this innovative company,” he said.

“Champion has built on its niche expertise in catering for the harsh environments encountered in Australia to achieve domestic leadership and expand into global markets. At the same time, the company has maintained its focus on quality, investing heavily in R&D and introducing state of the art industrial processes and practices, as exemplified by this new facility.”

According to Champion Compressors managing director, Wayne St Baker, the plaudit from the Victorian State Minister was testament to Champion’s industry-leading position.

“Advanced manufacturing facilities go some way to realising manufacturing success–both for local and export markets,” he said.

“The extra capacity provided by our new facility enables Champion to build on its 30 years of experience in designing and manufacturing tailored compressed-air solutions. This level of recognition from the State Government is truly a great honour.”

Attendees of the launch, which included industry partners and key customers, were hosted with a tour of the new site and an official opening presentation from Pakula.

Champion Compressors’ new headquarters is located at 324 to 332 Frankston Road, Dandenong, Victoria.
