Heavy road transport equipment manufacturer, Bruce Rock Engineering (BRE), has opened its 2,700m2 Perth metropolitan workshop facility in Forrestfield.
On hand to officiate the event was Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Transport, the Hon. Jim Chown MLC.
Steel cutting and processing for all BRE manufactured equipment is carried out in the new Forrestfield facility, whilst body, blasting, painting and assembly are completed in Bruce Rock.
“Bruce Rock Engineering is a WA owned and operated manufacturing company with a history dating back to 1980. It is always great to see a West Australian, family owned company grow nationally and continue to keep its manufacturing capabilities in this state,” Chown said.
“This new Forrestfield facility is strategically located right in the heart of a transport and logistics hub and on the road train route to the north of this state and to the east coast further strengthening our state’s capability to deliver cost and time efficiently.”
BRE Managing Director, Damion Verhoogt, said, “Today’s launch is a significant milestone for the business, cumulating the organisation’s recent expansion into the east coast to extend the company’s capacity to deliver transport equipment to Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania.
“The significance of the Forrestfied location means that we are close to our clients and have the ability to provide Perth metropolitan access to repairs, modifications and maintenance.”
