Flexicon Corporation (Australia) a wholly owned subsidiary of Flexicon Corporation in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, has more than doubled the size of its manufacturing and sales operation in July, 2021.
Located at 795 Boundary Road in Darra, Queensland, the 25,725 sq ft building dedicates 18,620 sq ft to manufacturing of Flexicon flexible screw conveyors, pneumatic conveying systems, tubular cable conveyors, bulk bag unloaders, bulk bag fillers, bulk bag conditioners, manual dumping stations, drum/box/container dumpers, weigh batching systems, and automated plant-wide systems. The remaining 7105 sq ft of office space houses administrative personnel, increased engineering sales staff, and visitor conference rooms.
A test laboratory scheduled for completion by end of year will simulate customer installations and verify performance on full-scale equipment.
Continued growth in Southeast Asia and the South Pacific Rim led Flexicon to add a dedicated sales office in Singapore in 2014, and another in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2019. As a result, processors in both regions can interact with native speakers who are factory-trained Flexicon employees, and benefit from the increased design and manufacturing capacity provided by Flexicon’s Queensland facility.
In addition to the US headquarters and new Australian facility, Flexicon engineers and manufactures its full line of equipment in Kent, UK and Gqeberha, South Africa.
