Electrolux Group ANZ last week celebrated the start of construction of a new 23,000sqm distribution centre at the Port of Brisbane with the ceremonial turning of the first sod of soil.
Kurt Hegvold, Managing Director ANZ, joined representatives from the Port of Brisbane, the principal contractors McNab and others signalling the addition of another 6 Green Star energy rated facility to the Electrolux Group ANZ Operations, joining the Ravenhall facility in Melbourne.
“Following the successful delivery of our Victorian distribution centre at Ravenhall, we’re enormously excited to begin the first stage of construction on this exciting development. It signifies a long-term commitment by the Electrolux Group in ensuring our operations in Queensland continue to deliver outstanding service to our customers and amazing experiences for our consumers and employees,” says Hegvold.
“We’re thrilled that the Port of Brisbane share in our sustainability ambitions and are committed to helping us deliver on our sustainability commitment into the future with this incredible facility.”
Local elder Matty Burns welcomed the attendees to country followed by a traditional smoking ceremony. Attendees were invited to walk through the smoke to assist in cleansing the area and warding off bad spirits from the people and the land.
Joining Hegvold for the official duties were Ryan Tunney, Construction Manager, McNab and Neil Stephens, Chief Executive Officer, Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd.
A forecast completion date is scheduled for October 2024.
