Nepean introduces Roxon brand to Australia

European surface and overland conveyor manufacturer Roxon has launched its entire range of materials handling and conveyor solutions in Australia.

Roxon’s entry into the country follows the acquisition of the company by Australia’s Nepean, which purchased the business from previous owner Sandvik in November 2017.

Nepean managing director Rolf Van Rooyen commented on the company’s expansion into Australia, which adds to its recognised presence in other regions.

“The Roxon brand is well known and trusted throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia having specialised in bulk materials handling solutions for well over 50 years,” Van Rooyen said.

“We are really excited to be bringing its world class engineered solutions, innovative products and market leading services to the Australian market.”

With Roxon’s introduction to Australia, Nepean is confident the combined capacity will give customers access to deep technical expertise, global product sourcing and the latest in materials handling technology for surface and overland conveyors.

Roxon provides solutions for bulk material handling for surface operations. Its products and services span the entire life cycle of conveyor systems, such as design, manufacturing, installation, maintenance, midlife upgrades and asset re-deployment.

They include a comprehensive suite of conveyor components, conveyor equipment and turnkey conveyor systems.

Van Rooyen said the Roxon Australia team would be headquartered in Gosford, New South Wales.

“Roxon Australia has a dedicated team of technical conveyor system specialists who have many decades of deep industry experience and knowledge,” Van Rooyen said.

“This team of experts can also draw upon the deep experience and operational capabilities of the Roxon teams in Finland and Sweden if needed.

“Leveraging our deep domain knowledge developed over more than 40 years, our global industry leading engineering capabilities, and our best-in-class in-house software, ROXON specialises in tailored, engineered design conveyor solutions that reduce costs and increase efficiencies.”

Roxon has executed its first project in Australia, a $15 million fixed crushing and screening plant at the Lima South Quarry in Benalla, Victoria.
