Flexicon Corporation (Australia) Pty Limited has opened new sales offices in Sydney to better service the company’s business in New South Wales, which it says is rapidly expanding.
Flexicon Corporation designs and manufactures bulk handling equipment and custom-engineered and integrated plant-wide systems that transport, discharge, fill, weigh, blend, deliver and/or feed a broad range of powder and bulk solid materials.
Flexicon products range from individual equipment to automated systems that source bulk material from interior and exterior plant locations, transport it between process equipment and storage vessels, weigh it, blend it, feed it to packaging lines, extruders, molding machines and storage vessels, and load it into railcars and trailers.
The new Sydney sales office will be equipped with sales management and administrative delegates, a conference centre and a covered exterior entertainment area.
“Adding a dedicated sales facility in Sydney allows us to double the number of Flexicon personnel servicing this market, while allowing the Brisbane and Melbourne offices to devote additional time to our Queensland and Victoria/South Australia customers,” said the company’s general manager, Ray Greene.
The addition of the Sydney sales office was timed to complement the expansion of Flexicon’s Brisbane manufacturing facilities, in which the company’s existing 1,000 sq m space was more than tripled by expanding into an adjacent 2,200 sq m plant, which is dedicated to increasing manufacturing and engineering capacity.
The Australian operation is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Flexicon Corporation of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA, and produces Flexicon’s full range of bulk handling equipment.
The Australian subsidiary handles sales, manufacturing and service throughout Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia and the South Pacific Rim, managing projects ranging from stand-alone equipment to custom-engineered, turnkey systems including commissioning, training and handover.
