Longwall Chain Australia is expanding its business by opening a facility in Emerald Queensland, Australia.
Longwall Chain Australia Managing Director, David Condor, stated: “Longwall Chain Australia has maintained its growth strategy in both New South Wales and Queensland in order to support our products of JDT Mining chain and Longwall Associates equipment.
The Queensland facility is capable of reeling and pod loading the chain assemblies. The company has also indicated the facilitiy can offer a secured storage yard to its customers. The site is 3000 m2 with the capacity to overhaul AFC and BSL chain assemblies.
Condor continued: “We decided to set up at Emerald with its close proximity to the mines on being able to offer critical component spares in a very short time frame and to provide a complete chain overhaul facility saving downtime and transportation costs for our customers.
He concluded: “We are very excited on opening the Emerald site along with recently supplying the largest AFC chain currently running in Australia - -JDT 52 mm F-Class in HO material along with Longwall Associates’ drive system.”
