Flender has announced plans for a expansion into Western Australia with a new facility in Tonkin Highway Industrial Estate in Bayswater. The move comes as Flender continues to grow in the region and looks to expand its operations in Western Australia to meet increasing customer demand, especially in wind energy and mining sectors.
The investment will include a new purpose-built 3,500 square metre facility set for completion in September. When complete, the new premises will include a 1.5MW test bench capable of testing complete drive systems up to a voltage of 6.6KV. The facility will also be designed to cater for projected growth in geared wind turbines over the next couple of decades. The new facility will enable Flender to combine sales, project delivery, engineering and training in one location.
