Challenge:
We were approached by the lithium plant's Production Scheduler in September 2018 regarding waste management equipment for the new build in Kwinana, which was expected to be completed during the first few months of 2019. Following on from this, we were asked to assist with the workshop equipment.

Solution:
The Production Scheduler brought his team of Supervisors to our Perth showroom, which enabled them to meet us and the products they were looking at purchasing, giving them peace of mind.
The Dumpmaster Bin Tipper was chosen for emptying of the site's wheelie bins into the main skip bin. With battery electric power and fast emptying, this was essential due to the large quantity of bins that would be emptied each day. To provide ease of transport of the wheelie bins around site, the Wheelie Bin Trailer was custom built for carrying of up to 8 wheelie bins at one time. The custom design allows for the wheelie bins to be loaded and unloaded easily and individually with side-loading access and safety chains to secure while transporting. The trailer can be towed via a tow tug or electric buggy, greatly reducing handling associated with waste management.
Having seen our high quality products, the team approached us for assistance on their workshop equipment as well. This involved implementing a storage system that was safe, worked with their pallet racking, and allowed easy access to contents. A total of 432 of the WERKS® Zinc Pallet Cages were supplied to fill this need - the cages feature a unique positive locking bar for secure storage on racking beams, hinged front and rear panels for simple access, sheet floor for optimum content protection, and mesh side panels for visibility. For the maintenance area, the WERKS® Mega Benches were selected for their high quality and strength, allowing heavy pieces of equipment to be worked on. Situated at the end of each Mega Bench, Boscotek Mobile Tool Trolleys provide a durable storage unit for tools and equipment, which can be moved around the workshop easily.

Time Period:
We were initially contacted in September 2018, with supply of products spanning the first half of 2019.
