A Modern Makeover for Manildra’s Distribution Hub
A central distribution hub responsible for freighting our finest Australian-grown and made products throughout the city of Sydney and outer metropolitan areas has been bolstered by recent, modern upgrades which includes Manildra Group’s innovative liquid sugar manufacturing operations, at the Clyde Warehouse.
With additional storage capacity and modern offices, the site now features an advanced, sophisticated operating line for truck drivers which will boost productivity, operating six days a week.
Manildra Group’s Head of Transport Mark Owens said that the critical investment injection plays an integral role in the company’s transportation strategy, a long-term initiative aimed at improving logistical efficiencies.
“The state-of-the-art logistics hub, features an innovative layout providing seamless in-bound and out-bound deliveries to customers, cementing Manildra Group as a first-class distributor,” Mr Owens said.
Manildra Group’s locally grown and made premium oils, sugars, flours, and bakery premixes are delivered to the Clyde hub, and from here delivered across the city of Sydney and outer metropolitan areas to customers of all sizes from bakeries, restaurants, and cafes, to food manufacturing sites.
A major driver for its warehouse plans circles back to what Mr Owens describes as better optimisation in the company’s fulfillment network, coupled with ongoing gains for improved deliveries and enhanced route density.
Redefining Manildra Group’s ever-evolving distribution footprint, the hub boasts a modern sophisticated manufacturing centre to produce Sunshine Sugar’s premium liquid sugar range, including the highest- quality syrups for the local confectionary and brewing industry.
“Our 100 per cent Australian-grown and made liquid sugars are second-to-none in terms of quality and consistency, with the new upgrades enhancing and boosting productivity,” said Manildra Group Manufacturing and Maintenance Manager Bernard Henri.
“The expansion of our warehouse presence is crucial for the growth of Manildra Group, increasing supply chain efficiencies whilst optimising the structure and workflow on site,” he said. Manildra Group Warehouse Manager, George Fadel echoed these sentiments.
“These new upgrades ensure we continue to deliver to our customers round-the-clock, day-in and day-out,” Mr Fadel said.
Manildra Group employs more than twenty people at the Clyde hub in fields from logistics, customer service, maintenance, forklift operations, to administration and transport.
“Our team is excited to work in an innovative manufacturing and warehouse environment, with this investment enabling us to better serve our customers and sustain future growth.
“These upgrades establish an efficient and sustainable structure, optimise warehouse space, drive digital automation and increase operational agility, so we can continue to respond to a rapidly changing business environment,” Mr Owens said.
