GROUND BREAKING NEWS – The West Australian reports Energy, Resources, Industry & Enterprise Minister Francis Logan took part in the Groundbreaking Ceremony for Fenner Dunlop’s $70 million manufacturing plant in Kwinana this month.
Fenner PLC through its Australian arm Fenner Dunlop - Australia, will build a new Greenfield plant for steel cord conveyor belt. The plant will be the first of its kind built in Australia in more than 60 years.
Our Executive Director David Landgren said there was a growing global and local market for steel cord conveyor belting.
“This investment includes the most modern equipped, technical testing facility in the southern hemisphere” he said
“It will be a great advantage for our Australian Customers to have the most modern technically advanced steel cord plant in the World, coupled with our valued added service technicians not only in their time zone, but also in Western Australia’s, case at their doorstep”.
BEHIND THE SCENES – The Technical Team Hard At Work While it is fantastic to have “Industry Best” in relation to the new Kwinana Steel Cord Conveyor Belt Manufacturing facility, the Global Fenner Dunlop Technical Team are in no way sitting on their hands while the factory is under construction.
The Team have plenty of work ahead of themselves. Our Technical Charter for the Fenner Dunlop Australia Steel Cord Belting facility will be: “Technically we will match our facility, and be recognised as the Industry Best.”
While Kwinana is a Greenfield plant for steel cord conveyor belt, the same can’t be said about Fenner Dunlop’s experience in the manufacture of steel cord conveyor belting.
As such the Australian Technical Team are committed to the utilisation of our Network of Global Expertise, and combining this with over a 100 years of local market knowledge, in the production of a steel cord conveyor belting range that will perform to our customer’s stringent criteria. (Including compound development to suit ore type & its unique characteristics)
The key focus is to provide a “Steel Conveyor Belt Solutions Package” uniquely underpinned by Fenner Dunlop’s value added services. To be respected as the World’s safest and most technically advanced facility, efficiently producing best quality products to fulfil our customer’s needs”
