Ahrens help equip Electrolux to compete on global stage
Electrolux’s manufacturing efficiencies and global competitiveness has been bolstered through a new standout warehouse constructed by Ahrens.
Ahrens continue to provide cutting edge and innovative manufacturing solutions for their clients and the delivery of a new warehouse facility for industry-leading global appliance company, Electrolux, was no exception.
Proving to be the best fit to construct the multimillion dollar resource, Ahrens were selected to ensure Electrolux’s world class standard was met through meeting a number of complex requirements and equipment installations within the workshop layout and design.
Ahrens set the bar for outstanding quality and manufacturing excellence by delivering the 5,000m2 warehouse building and extensive civil works at Electrolux’s cooking products plant, employing a collaborative and consultative approach that saw them work alongside Electrolux from the very start.
This approach meant Ahrens could establish agreed-upon project outcomes with Electrolux, and incorporate all components of the project in the initial design and planning stage. This ensured the facility could cater for unique ground conditions, provide truck access, a gatehouse as well as an expansive 6,000m2 of employee car parking.
The innovative structural design also featured custom designed portal frames for cost efficiency and durability, as well as beams and 55-tonnes of steelwork fabricated locally at Ahrens’ in-house workshop.
The new facility has greatly enhanced Electrolux’s capacity and capability offering to meet their manufacturing needs both now and into the future.
Ahrens were able to efficiently manage the project within six months from start to finish. The new facility is the latest in a long list of Electrolux investments in the 80 year-old Dudley Park plant – the last remaining whitegoods manufacturing facility in Australia.
