Schütz Australia opens Yatala factory

The new Schütz Australia factory was officially opened on the 15th of November.

At the official opening of the factory: Andrew Shields (2nd from the left), representing the Gold Coast Central Chamber of Commerce, Alan Barham (4th from the left), Managing Director Schütz Australia, Roland Strassburger (4th from the right), Schütz CEO; and Andreas Wolf (2nd from the right.), Business Unit Manager Asia Pacific.

Around 100 guests, including numerous customers and suppliers as well as representatives from the media, came to the opening in Yatala south of Brisbane.

As well as ideal logistic connections, the new 19,000-square-metre company site has state-of-the-art facilities for the production of new IBCs, IBC and drum reconditioning as well as high-performance storage and logistics facilities. The new plant is an investment that will optimise supplies to customers in the eastern part of the country.

During a factory tour, guests watched the modern production lines operating live; all production facilities comply with the highest environmental, safety and quality management standards. IBC reconditioning started here in January 2019; G2 110-litre drums used for agrochemical products are also returned to Yatala and reconditioned. The next operational phase commenced in April, with the start of production of new containers on the Ecobulk MX line.

The guests received an impression of the ultra-modern IBC production during the factory tour.

As the company’s new manufacturing hub on the east coast, the plant provides sustainable packaging and services to customers in Queensland and New South Wales. It also significantly boosts delivery reliability and flexibility. In addition to the ultra-modern production facilities, the company’s local administration and sales offices are also located on the site.
