Suc­cess on­shore and off for Hamil­ton com­pany

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - WELDING/FABRICATION -

Suc­cess within New Zealand in­stalling plant equip­ment for this coun­try’s dairy in­dus­try quickly led to Hendl & Mur­ray En­gi­neer­ing Ltd head­ing off­shore to ful­fil the needs of clients glob­ally. In the nearly four decades it has been es­tab­lished, the Hamil­ton-based op­er­a­tion has ex­panded its staff to 40 and its ser­vices into the de­sign and fab­ri­ca­tion of tanks, ves­sels and si­los within its fully-equipped fab­ri­ca­tion fa­cil­ity and pro­vides man­u­fac­tur­ing and en­gi­neer­ing so­lu­tions to the dairy, food and bev­er­age, phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal and chem­i­cal in­dus­tries world­wide.

A no­table project was the sup­ply of six 540m3 Sugar Hop­pers at a con­tract price in ex­cess of three mil­lion dol­lars for Sugar Australia. The project in­cluded fab­ri­ca­tion of the sugar hop­pers as a com­plete unit de­liv­ered and ready to erect in Mel­bourne. This in­volved work­shop fab­ri­ca­tion of seg­ments as large as al­low­able on New Zealand roads, which were then trans­ported to a leased yard op­po­site the Port of Tau­ranga. Here the units un­der­went fi­nal as­sem­bly be­fore be­ing clad in­side a “work­shop” built from 40ft ship­ping con­tain­ers. On ar­rival at Sugar Australia in Vic­to­ria, the hop­pers were in­stalled over the pe­riod of a sin­gle week­end.

The on-site ca­pa­bil­i­ties of HME are di­verse. Some of the spe­cific skills in­clude – although aren’t limited to: • Project man­age­ment • Stain­less steel pipework to AS/NZS stan­dards. • High pres­sure stain­less steel and car­bon steel pipe­lines to

ASME stan­dard, in­clud­ing cer­ti­fied steam and am­mo­nia lines. • Pipe bridges and util­ity ser­vices pipe work, in­clu­sive of

struc­tural steel and civil works. • Tank, ves­sel and silo fab­ri­ca­tion. • In­stal­la­tion of spe­cial­ist process equip­ment. • Small turn-key plant con­struc­tion. • Main­te­nance.

HME has its own in-house qual­ity sys­tem that has evolved from the con­tin­ual devel­op­ment of its orig­i­nal ISO9002 ac­cred­ited sys­tem. This pro­ce­dure cov­ers all as­pects of the busi­ness, from con­tract award through to de­sign and draw­ings, and then all the way through to fi­nal testing of the com­pleted prod­uct.
