    Westrac Expansion Perth

Project details: 

WesTrac is one of the world’s largest dealers of Caterpillar equipment, with a head office in South Guildford, Perth. WesTrac is a franchise dealer for new and used equipment, and provides parts, maintenance and rebuild services to the resources, mining, forestry and construction industries.

Projecting significant industry growth in Western Australia, WesTrac forecast that their business expansion would require redevelopment of their facilities, and the infrastructure would require expansion through new facilities, significant extension and modification or a complete rebuild, all within a live operational facility.

The purpose of the redevelopment was to improve efficiency, accuracy and customer service, to be largely achieved through technology and service advances, including robotics. APP reviewed the redevelopment programme, and was able to introduce innovative mitigation strategies for key risks, and also resulted in an overall time reduction of 40% (almost two years).

With the success of this review and the cost savings, APP was asked to provide project management of WesTrac‘s expansion program. This 32-month program will deliver 80,000sqm of corporate, manufacturing and distribution facilities across 30ha of amalgamated land holdings.

APP is proud to have established a strong relationship with WesTrac and supported them through a challenging but exciting growth phase in their business.
