PLASSER AUSTRALIA - INAUGURAL OPENING OF NEW PRODUCTION HALL  

11 December 2015

On 1 December 2015 Plasser Australia celebrated the official opening of its new production hall “in style“ - Amongst many guests of honour were Johannes Max-Theurer (CEO of the Plasser Group), The  Hon Anthony Roberts (Minister for Industry, Resources and Energy in NSW) and Dr. Helmut Böck (Austrian Ambassador to Australia).  

The AUD 10 million dollar project, which effectively increases the original production area by 25 %,  was built according to highest technical specifications and includes two 10 m paternoster for the vertical storage of parts, two 50 ton cranes, standard as well as narrow-gauge tracks, a 70 m deep working hole as well as a washing plant.

Plasser Australia, part of the Plasser & Theurer group, was established and commenced manufacture of track maintenance and construction machinery in Australia in 1970. In 1980, the company moved to its present location at St Marys on 2.5 hectares of land, with rail siding access to the New South Wales standard gauge rail system.

The new production hall enables the company to further expand its activities, particularly in the areas of overhaul and repair.
