Conveyor maintenance company REMA TIP TOP has moved its Asia-Pacific (APAC) headquarters to a new premise in Warabrook, New South Wales in an effort to make space for staff expansion. Warabrook was chosen in part as a location for the move due to its proximity to the mining region of Hunter Valley.
The headquarters opened today at 15 Warabrook Boulevard, and visitors will be welcome in the afternoon for tours.
According to Craig Philpotts, REMA TIP TOP managing director, Australia, the company has seen increased demand for labour across the eastern seaboard and Pilbara region of Western Australia.
“In the hunter, from the ports of Newcastle to coal operations as far as Singleton, Muswellbrook and Gunnedah, we are experiencing a surge in work, not seen since the boom ended,” he explained. “We are certainly very optimistic.”
Philpotts stressed that the company is placing a greater focus on innovation and technologies for its business model, changing how it engages with customers in response to increasingly aggressive industry supply chain practices.
“We are demonstrating to the market that we can lower the price of their maintenance and improve the availability of their assets with an analytical approach that looks at entire conveyor systems.
“Our new headquarters has given us the capability to continue investing in people and employment in the Hunter and across Australia, whilst making good on our commitment to our vision statement.”
