Australia’s compressed air technology group, Champion Compressors, is relocating its headquarters to Melbourne’s south-eastern suburb of Dandenong.
The move will consolidate the company’s manufacturing, sales and technical support centres into a single state-of-the-art business/manufacturing facility, and provide Australia’s industrial sector with premium access to the company’s compressed air solutions.
The relocation will also see the compressed-air specialist double its manufacturing capacity, increase its sales and technical support office space three-fold, as well as quadrupling its loading and parking facilities.
According to Champion Compressors MD, Wayne St Baker, establishing and maintaining an industry-leading position, requires local manufactures to differentiate and add value where importers cannot.
“Advanced manufacturing facilities, such as Champion’s new headquarters, go some way to realising manufacturing success–both for local and export markets,” he said.
“The extra capacity provided by our new facility enables us to provide our comprehensive range of standard and customised compressed air solutions in the shortest lead-times.”
The compressor company’s move to its new headquarters will be progressive across the second half of 2008. The sales and technical support office will move first, with the manufacturing facility scheduled to come online by the end of the year.
“The expansion will allow us to embark on the design and manufacture of a new range of compressed air products, scheduled for release throughout 2009,” St Baker said.
“It also provides us with the opportunity to expand our research and development operation and build on our already comprehensive engineered products division.”
Champion Compressors’ new headquarters is located at 324 to 332 Frankston Road, Dandenong.
Telephone contact details will remain the same.
Further details of the official opening event for Champion Compressors’ headquarters are to be announced.
