Thyssenkrupp is strengthening its post in Australia by establishing a service centre in Brisbane.
The $1 million facility is strategically located to support Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions’ customer base on the East Coast of Australia, as well as clients in Oceania that use major logistic channels through Brisbane.
After many successful years in Australia, the investment was considered a logical consequence by Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions chief executive Andrew Howie.
The service centre facilitates the warehousing and servicing of wear and spare parts, equipment refurbishments, engineering and field services and revamps.
It includes a 350-square-metre office and 1000 square metres of warehouse and workshop space with room for 30 employees.
“As we want to offer the best possible services to our customers, we are continuously expanding our service offering in the regions,” service business unit chief executive Donald Weir said.
This facility enables Thyssenkrupp to co-locate its engineering and project staff with its service personnel, according to Howie.
“For our clients in the mining, cement and chemical industries, this means they benefit from an integrated project life-cycle approach, incorporating the latest products and technologies,” he said.
Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions is a business area dedicated to the engineering, construction and service of industrial plants and systems.
