Flender, one of the leading global suppliers of mechanical drives and a subsidiary of technology giant Siemens has announced plans for a expansion into Western Australia with a new state-of-the-art facility in Tonkin Highway Industrial Estate in Bayswater. The move comes as Flender continues to grow in the region and looks to expand its operations in Western Australia to meet increasing customer demand, especially in wind energy and mining sectors.

The investment will include a new purpose-built 3500 m² facility set for completion in September. When complete, the new premises will be the only OEM facility on the West Coast with a 1.5 MW test bench capable of testing complete drive systems up to a voltage of 6.6 KV. Kareem Emara, CEO and Managing Director at Flender Australia, said that relocating to Tonkin Highway Industrial Estate will allow Flender to centralise operations and get closer to customers in Western Australia. The new facility will enable Flender to combine sales, project delivery, engineering and training in one location.
