Rema Tip Top lays the groundwork for Australia expansion

Rema Tip Top has opened a “Centre of Excellence” in Brisbane, Australia, as it looks to expand its material processing capabilities into the future.

This facility will be the home of its east coast surface protection hub, extending on the expertise of its Perth surface protection operations to provide increased local and national services for its customers, the company said.

“The facility, based in Northgate in Brisbane’s inner north, is strategically positioned on the east coast to provide more agile service to new and existing customers and will offer increased support to the company’s largest clients, many headquartered in the area,” the company said.

It features dedicated workshop and office space with close proximity to transport hubs including Brisbane Airport and Brisbane Port, providing Rema Tip Top with the ability to “strengthen its approach to servicing its customers across the entire country”, the company said.

“A key component of Rema Tip Top’s focus on diversification, the centre is also poised to provide access to new materials handling operations in the region, including cement and food processing industries,” the company added.

Karsten Bartnicki, CEO Rema Tip Top Industry Australia, said that the new Brisbane Centre of Excellence will create an immediate economic impact in the region, providing a range of new employment opportunities and also underpins Rema Tip Top’s commitment to investment in infrastructure to drive sustainable growth.

GN kicks off 2019 with separation and conveying equipment spinoff

GN has decided to spinoff its separation and conveying divisions into a new group, GN Separation and Conveying Equipment.

The new business, set up at the beginning of 2019, will mainly focus on industries outside of the oil & gas, and recycling and waste management sectors.

GN Separation and Conveying’s product line includes decanter centrifuges; transfer pumps; screw, bucket and belt conveyors; and other separation equipment such as clarifiers and a screen scroll centrifuge.

Mining and construction is one of the company’s target markets. Decanter centrifuges (pictured), with up to 30 in (76.2 cm) bowl diameters, are already working in coal operations to dewater slurry, while GN U-Type screw conveyors have potential applications in mining operations for moving wet or dry materials either horizontally, on an incline or vertically.
