Manufacturing News

Premium 4WD aluminium tray and canopy manufacturer Norweld has invested $5 million in a new 2,573sqm purpose-built facility in Wangara, Perth to meet demand from recreational and fleet customers.

Once at full capacity the facility will employ 30 local staff and triple Norweld’s previous output capabilities in Western Australia, including servicing customers as far north as The Kimberley and exporting to the Middle East and North Africa.

The fastest growing of Norweld’s seven locations across Australia, trays and canopies fitted in the Perth facility are designed to withstand rugged job sites across agriculture and farming, mineral and petroleum mining and trade sectors, according to the company.

Norweld recently launched a new generation tray design – the result of a 2.5 year investment in research and development worth $750,000.

Norweld WA Sales and Operations Manager Dion Katemis said the company’s growth shows there is strong demand locally for high quality trays and canopies.

Katemis said: “We know that Perth locals love traveling many kilometres off-road, and fleet vehicles need to access some pretty remote and rough sites, which is why our products need to be guaranteed to last.

“With our new facility we’ll be able to triple our production output and support hundreds more local businesses, trades and families.”

Specialised labour hire business for the mining and construction sectors Diesel & Dirt Contractors has 35 Norweld trays and canopies fitted to its fleet which travels thousands of kilometres across WA and SA.

Diesel & Direct Operations Manager Al Kristensen said: “We liked the innovative ideas that Norweld have, and the ability to customise what we wanted, the way we wanted to make it work for our team.”
