Ampcontrol moves to bigger site in WA

Electrical engineering firm Ampcontrol has announced an expansion in Western Australia, moving to a new 9,500 square metre site at Kewdale including a new cable workshop, as the company doubles in size in the state.  

The company said the expansion follows an announcement earlier in the week of a new vision “to lead the global energy revolution with strategic plans for growth and expansion into new markets, geographic locations, and innovative energy transition solutions for the resources sector.” 

This week also saw the company making the AFR Boss Most Innovative Companies list, placing eighth in the Manufacturing and Consumer Goods category.

According to a statement from Ampcontrol on Thursday, it is growing at a rate of 45 per cent, year on year, in WA.

“With an industry-wide push towards decarbonisation, it is a natural progression in the growth of our business to extend our service offerings to support mine sites in Western Australia to meet both customer and industry needs,” said Rod Henderson, Ampcontrol Managing Director & CEO.

Customers would now have local access to CableTrack, a software product for visibility and management of cable assets over their life at a site, as part of the company’s cable offerings in the state, it said. 

“Ampcontrol has been working with cables for more than 20 years; we bring an abundance of domain expertise on cable management systems which will be applied locally in Western Australia,” added Henderson.

Washington H. Soul Pattinson, which had a majority shareholding in Ampcontrol since 2005, became 100 per cent owner of Ampcontrol last year.

Ampcontrol is uniquely positioned to capitalise on the decarbonisation thematic with its people, technology, and services,” WHSP said in its April 2022 announcement on acquiring the remaining stake.
