After five years of planning and a $37.5 million development and infrastructure investment, Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia (HCA) has officially opened another state-of-the-art facility to house its Brisbane branch and a newly located parts distribution warehouse.
The new facility, located in Wacol, is one of HCA’s most significant investments in key infrastructure to-date, and follows a number of other key investments enabling further national expansion.
Accompanied by another recent site opening in Toowoomba, the two sites have taken the branch total to five across Queensland along with Emerald, Mackay and Townsville.
This is the second property enhancement since 2012, when HCA officially opened the Brisbane facility which formed as the mining operation hub in Eastern Australia.
Facing business growth in the mining, waste and construction industries over the past eight years, this facility will further enhance HCA’s customer support capabilities.
The total facility site is some 80,000 square metres in dimension and is located within an expanding commercial area with ample access for heavy wide loads.
HCA Managing Director David Harvey said the new development will further expand the company’s support capabilities.
“The new site is a strategic investment in our company’s future, and aims to strengthen our ability to deliver the highest level of support to our customers in Queensland as well as further afield,” he said.
Strategically located next to the Centenary Highway, the facility is connected to the main arterial freeway to access Brisbane city and surrounding suburbs.
It’s also accessible to major industrial areas, construction sites and the local Brisbane Airport.
The site features a series of specialised buildings incorporating the latest in innovative and environmentally-conscious technologies, similar to those adopted within HCA’s recently constructed Perth Remanufacturing facility in Forrestdale, Western Australia.
