Martin Engineering opens manufacturing plant in Australia

Opened for business in September, 2017, the new facility will provide direct sales, service, training, and manufacturing to the continent, serving key industries such as cement, mining, sugar, quarrying, and bulk handling ports. The facility will also provide factory-direct customer access to locally-manufactured products, as well as technical service from experienced and factory-trained technicians.

Company officials say that having local production will also allow Martin Engineering to supply its products at lower prices, reducing the overall cost of ownership.

Among the manufacturing capabilities are the firm’s proprietary technology for producing belt cleaner blades, using its custom-built work cell. The manufacturing cells are designed, engineered,and constructed by Martin, and the unique processing technology is being implemented at Martin locations on six continents to deliver premium-quality components around the world.

Martin Engineering’s supplier for the chemical components of its urethane formulations is BASF Corporation. Partnering with BASF brings the benefit of the chemical company’s extensive and reliable supply chain, allowing Martin Engineering to continue innovating polyurethane blade production and quickly deliver products worldwide.

By mixing, forming and curing its own belt cleaner blades in the modular work station, Martin Engineering takes complete control of the entire process meaning that customers in Australia and Asia will benefit from ready access to freshly moulded belt cleaner blades meeting the highest quality standards.

“Our computer-controlled moulding operations around the world are monitored at global headquarters,” observed Chief Technology Officer Paul Harrison. "This system delivers precise control and quality assurance, and remote monitoring allows technicians to investigate the causes of any faults and offer fixes to operators without having to travel to the site.”
