MARITIMO BUILDS NEW PLANT
AUSTRALIA’S MARITIMO IS completing a multi-milliondollar expansion of its original Gold Coast plant – a move which will ‘future-proof’ the business and create the country’s most advanced and environmentallysensitive marine industry manufacturing facility.
To be completed early in 2019, it will virtually double the company’s manufacturing base. The new buildings include a lamination shed insulated against heat with greater capacity, volume and better air flow. There are new lunchrooms, toilets and showers, and 230m2 of portable mezzanine so workplaces can be specifically tailored to the needs of the day. The new facility will offer more storage for moulds and more designated detailing and cutting bays.
Martimo will also double its CNC router machinery and a streamlined manufacturing process will provide the capacity to engineer four vessels at one time as they progress through the facility.
As part of its expansion, Maritimo is undertaking a substantial manpower drive aimed at increasing the overall workforce by 30 percent. www.maritimo.com.au
