Western Containers Road Tanker/Tank Container Wash, Repair and Heating Facility.

When the Veolia wash facility closed in June 2007 the need for another Sydney based facility was essential to service the needs of transporters of Chemicals.

The Johnson family, having already firmly established themselves in the sales, rental, storage, repair and modification of shipping containers, saw this as an opportunity to branch out into the ISO container and road tanker business.

Key Veolia staff and some of the Veolia wash equipment was procured to enhance the existing repair and surveyor personnel.

The Chullora site was chosen as the ideal area to establish the facility and work on this site began in July 2007.

The new facility is 500 m from the Chullora rail head (for interstate ISO transportation), located 200m from Rookwood Road and 2klms from the Hume Highway it is conveniently located to the major arterial network.

There is also the potential to store 500 TEU on-site.
