Ahrens’ to build new hay processing plant facility for Johnson Asahi in Dooen

Aligning with another family owned company with a rich history of success, Johnson Asahi chose Ahrens to deliver this project as they are a leading construction company that can provide a complete range of in-house project services and cost-effective solutions. This was the competitive advantage that saw this repeat client return to Ahrens for the turnkey delivery of their new project.

With the ability to design, fabricate and detail their own structural steel and components at their local manufacturing facility, this will allow the team to dramatically reduce planning and construction time.

The Ahrens team will work tirelessly to deliver this facility in ten months, and will integrate capabilities from various sectors of the business including the Design and Construction team, the Steel Solutions division for the supply of structural steel, and Site Services for erection.

Ahrens work for the client will allow them to increase their production capacity, helping them to meet increased demand. This is one of various projects Ahrens have will completed for JT Johnsons over many years, with works ranging from pellet plants and a series of other buildings in South Australia.

With both companies proudly family owned and with a heritage that has spanned across many decades and generations, Ahrens have had a long and valued relationship with Johnson Asahi and one they are sure will continue long into the future.

With Ahrens’ position as a leading construction and steel services company, clients like Johnson Asahi keep coming back.

Ahrens own a vast fleet of plant and equipment, including mobile cranes from 15 tonnes to 200 tonnes, welders, generators, elevated work platforms and more than 1,000 site vehicles. An enormous advantage to their clients is the ability to access and deploy multi-skilled site crews to work anywhere in Australia.

Ahrens is proud to be expanding their repertoire of work in the Victorian market through this state-of-the-art facility and large regional development for a highly valued customer.
