New Packing Plant Produces Productivity Gains
Construction has commenced of the Shoalhaven Starches’ state-of-the-art packing plant, employing more than 60 construction workers during the build phases.
Operational by 2023, phase one of the project includes two modern 25kg packing lines, one tonne bag packing line,
plus pneumatic tank filling capabilities which will reduce congestion on-site and see fewer train crossings across Bolong Road, Bomaderry.
Shoalhaven Starches Head of Capital Engineering (Projects), Aaron Ticehurst, said, “the plant design features high speed packing lines which increases capacity, flexibility, and diversifies product capabilities. From next year, the lines will start packing our Australian-grown and made vital wheat gluten, and from there expanding to other products.
Our packing department is excited to be soon working in an innovative manufacturing environment, with the plant also enabling us to better serve our customers and sustain future growth.”
