SEW-Eurodrive's new Perth centre enhances services
24/02/2010 - Leading drives solutions group, SEW-Eurodrive, has opened a new sales and service centre in Perth, Western Australia.
Located in the industrial suburb of Welshpool, the new premises is manned by a team of highly qualified engineers and experienced technical staff. Featuring on-site assembly, service and training facilities, SEW-Eurodrive's new sales and service centre also provides industry with premium access to the company's comprehensive range of motor and drive technologies, expertise and spares.
According to SEW-Eurodrive WA State Manager, Trevor Hughes, the new facility is four times the size of the company's previous premises and has been purpose-designed to accommodate the assembly and repair of larger-sized complete drive packages.
"This 2300-square-metre site features 800 square metres of electrical and mechanical workshops," he said. "In addition to 16-tonne and five-tonne overhead gantry cranes, we also have a two-tonne jib crane. This heavy-lifting capability-plus the additional workshop space-will facilitate the assembly and repair of larger size drive assemblies."
This extended capacity will enhance SEW-Eurodrive's ability to support heavy industry-especially the mining industry. "This is the largest drive-systems assembly and repair facility in the Perth area, and features capacity to hold over $1 million of stock," said Hughes. "This will enable us to provide a broader level of service and a quicker turnaround. SEW-Eurodrive is genuinely in a league of its own in terms of being able to support the local market place."
Not content with providing an unparalleled service to its customers, SEW-Eurodrive has also sought to improve its own performance with the new building-its environmental performance. Just as SEW-Eurodrive's drives solutions can increase the energy efficiency of end users' processes, the new building has also been designed with energy savings in mind-featuring special construction for thermal resistance, and a wall facade system designed to maximise the use of natural light.
"Reducing environmental impact has always been a priority to SEW-Eurodrive," said Hughes. "This new centre will help us to reduce our own carbon footprint as we help the end-users of our drives solutions to reduce theirs."
The new facility also features a designated training room, enabling in-house training to be provided for up to 20 people at a time. Combined with enhanced access to Perth's arterial road network, the new premises offers unprecedented access to SEW-Eurodrive's peerless drive solutions and technical proficiency.
