Aachen, Germany, November 19, 2015 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- BHS-Sonthofen has recently set up the joint venture BHS-Sonthofen (Aust) Pty Ltd in Australia and can now offer sales, professional consulting, and quick on-site service to its customers "down under". The newly established company employs a service team of competent specialists, who have been familiar with BHS machines for many years, and is equipped with several test machines and a spare parts warehouse.
The demand for mixing, crushing, and recycling machines from BHS-Sonthofen in Australia is continuously increasing. BHS mixers in Australia, for example, have been instrumental in backfilling mines for many years. A number of BHS concrete mixers are also being used for major infrastructure projects in Australia. A prestigious example of this is the current "Barangaroo Development Project" in Sydney, one of the world's largest city renovation projects. Around 54 acres of downtown Sydney's west harbor edge is set to be fully renovated by 2022.
In order to meet the increasing demand for consultation and service, BHS has collaborated with Gill Wedmore to set up the Joint Venture "BHS-Sonthofen (Aust) Pty Ltd" with headquarters in Newcastle/New South Wales, which Wedmore will be heading as Chairman. Wedmore has been operating BHS-Sonthofen mixers for many years in his own company BFG Group Pty. Ltd.
BHS Australia will be actively marketing products for the mixing and crushing business sectors in Australia. BHS also sees great potential on the fifth continent in recycling waste material and scrap metal. A current example: A BHS Rotor Impact Mill of type RPM at a waste treatment plant in the state of New South Wales crushes used glass, which is used to replace sand as an aggregate for concrete. Sand is in short supply in the Sydney area.
Geoffrey Lee has been working as Business Development Manager for BHS Australia since August. He brings with him extensive knowledge of machine technology in mining, the construction industry, and recycling. BHS Australia sends out experienced employees with many years of machine expertise to perform the installation, maintenance, and repair work.
The company's own spare parts warehouse near Newcastle allows it to drastically reduce delivery times. Moreover, its presence in Australia gives customers and interested parties a strong sense of security before making their investment decisions. They can now use test machines for trials in their own country.
Dennis Kemmann, Managing Director of BHS-Sonthofen GmbH, is convinced that the new joint venture will greatly benefit its customers in Australia. "BHS and Gill Wedmore are united by mutual trust which has been repeatedly affirmed over many years. The expertise that our Australian colleagues have developed in using our machines allows us to ensure that the advice and service provided will be at a very high level from day one - precisely what BHS is famous for.
