Alfagomma Australia have moved into their new 17,600 sqm world class facility at 50 Honeycomb Drive Eastern Creek, in Sydney’s west. The new building boast’s a 1000 sqm office, as well as 9,400 sqm warehouse/workshop.
Alfagomma’s Australasian Managing Director, Mr Rick Sacco explains – “This project has taken 2 years from signing to completion and whilst it has been challenging at times, it’s satisfying to see this project come to fruition. From concept through to design this building will allow us to meet the demands of our expanding business now and into the future.
This facility will accommodate our National Head Office administration, Customer Service Centre, the design and engineering team and state of the art training centre.
Our National Assembly and Distribution Centre’s provide logistic support to our mining and distribution branches through out Australia, also we have the capacity on site now to unload 15, 40 ft containers.
Moving inventory within a warehouse is challenging, as a result we have also invested heavily in a state of the art warehouse automation and software systems, installing a carousel which will improve accuracy and productivity.
Our dedicated team of 45 employees is an important ingredient to any business being successful, so we made the commercial decision to remain in the existing local area, to allow continuity in the business moving forward.
This also adds to the global network of Alfagomma Spa Italy which has been established for 60 years, employing approximately 3000 people globally, with 16 manufacturing plants in 5 countries, 79 subsidiaries and assembly plants in 21 countries and are the largest manufacturer of industrial and hydraulic hose in Europe”
