Santrev Steel Factory Opens in Dongguan

24 October 2012, at 10:06am

CHINA - The Australian owned and operated Santrev steel factory has opened with a gala event in Dongguan, China.

This purpose-built facility was designed to uphold further good quality and ensure minimal lead time in addition to cutting costs for clients. The opening of the factory will also serve to boost the amount of galvanised trusses Santrev will be able to build per year to around the 500-mark, putting Santrev in a league of its own compared to other industrial builders. The state-of-the-art, 2,200-square metre factory is set to improve the already superior reliability of Santrev's services whilst delivering quality hot gal dipped steel.

The factory helps give Santrev's Chinese partner a critical role in supporting Santrev's customers including building projects in mainland China but remains in full control by Santrev in Australia. The factory is managed by Santrev Director, Garry Sanday, Michael Trevanion and Australian Factory Manager, Peter Moore, who joins Santrev with a long track history of reliability and quality.

“The factory has been in operation for several months and after a lot of work, we’re thrilled about the quality of the galvanized poultry frames being produced by the Santrev team,” says Director, Mr Sanday.

Fellow Santrev Director, Luke Trevanion, was part of the lavish opening ceremony which included ribbon-cutting and fireworks, attended by over 100 people, including the local television station, newspapers, local industry and government officials. No expense was spared in the gala event, which along with a dinner attended by the entire host of ceremony guests, was very well received. Mr Trevanion is excited by what the opening means for clients.

“After listening to our Australian and Pacific Rim clients, we are thrilled to have our factory opened. After many years hard work we are all proud of our ability to be able to produce a high quality product on time and on budget,” Mr Trevanion said.

The timing was impeccable as the VIV China show in Beijing, where Santrev was out in force to build on its growing international reputation, coincided with the opening of the factory. The factory opening will bring about smaller lead times and costs for clients in Australia. It will help increase Santrev on the global scale, easing the way for work to go ahead in countries such as North and South America and Europe.
