SEW expands operations in WA


Leading drives solutions group, SEW-Eurodrive, has opened a new sales and service centre in Perth.

Located in the industrial suburb of Welshpool, the new premises is manned by a team of highly qualified engineers and experienced technical staff.

Featuring on-site assembly, service and training facilities, SEW-Eurodrive’s new sales and service centre also provides industry with premium access to the company’s comprehensive range of motor and drive technologies, expertise and spares.

The new facility is four times the size of the company’s previous premises and has been purpose-designed to accommodate the assembly and repair of larger-sized complete drive packages.

The new 2300sqm site features 800sqm of electrical and mechanical workshops as well as 16-tonne and five-tonne overhead gantry cranes and a two-tonne jib crane.

This heavy-lifting capability — plus the additional workshop space — will facilitate the assembly and repair of larger size drive assemblies.

This extended capacity will enhance SEW-Eurodrive’s ability to support heavy industry —especially the mining industry.

“This is the largest drive-systems assembly and repair facility in the Perth area, and features capacity to hold over $1 million of stock,” said SEW-Eurodrive WA state manager, Trevor Hughes.
