REMA TIP TOP Australia builds up infrastructure capabilities

REMA TIP TOP Australia says it is extending its existing range of material processing, wear protection and surface protection capabilities with the addition of civil, structural steel, mechanical and piping entity Drew Project Services.

The new agreement bolsters REMA TIP TOP’s experience in the installation and maintenance of conveyor systems for Australia’s leading industrial companies, adding a new and unmatched capability to provide broader infrastructure services, it said.

Steve Hipwell, REMA TIP TOP’s National Projects and Tenders Manager, said: “We’ve long been recognised as a leading provider of products and services that help keep Australian industry on the move. From conveyor belt design, componentry and specialist repair services, we’ve been able to hone our skills over decades to become expert in the installation, maintenance and the replacement of conveyor belts globally.”

This new agreement with Drew Project Services extends the company’s capability to provide turnkey solutions for customers in civil and mechanical disciplines across both maintenance and project requirements, Hipwell explained. “These services include detailed design and fabrication, detailed earthworks, form work and steel fixing, concreting, project management and supervision, heavy construction, site installation and commissioning, specialised welding and cutting, crane operation and rigging, painting and blasting services,” he said.

“We’ve long spoken about our desire to provide total industrial solutions that are aligned to our customers’ operating challenges and the establishment of this new infrastructure capability is evidence of this commitment.”

The new partnership is in effect from January 1, 2020.
