Komatsu opens new Brisbane site

 

Komatsu Australia Limited has opened its new, state-of-the-art regional headquarters at Wacol, southwest of Brisbane. 
 
The project injected more than $55 million into the local economy, with up to 400 workers employed during the construction phase that was completed in March.
 
The facility will act as a one-stop shop for Queensland customers, with the sale, service, assembly and remanufacturing of mining and construction equipment taking place on site. 
 
The site also features Komatsu's Condition Monitoring Services' oil-testing laboratories.
 
More than 150 permanent employment opportunities have been created with the establishment of the Komatsu Wacol site.
 
The "operational hub" will also house Komatsu Australia's Mining Division head office and service customers through a world-class mechanical component re-manufacturing centre.
 
Komatsu says the Wacol site has 40 per cent more capacity and will assemble up to 70 "Ultra-class" mining dump trucks each year, with the facility strategically located and built to better service customers in the rapidly expanding Queensland resource sector.
