:: Timely Service Centre Initiative by Outokumpu Delivers Wide Benefits

When Outokumpu Technology set up its Australian Service Centre just four years ago, a global resource boom wasn’t even on the radar.

But with the Centre trebling in size by 2006, the global leader in minerals and metals processing technology is now well placed to provide world-class skills to enhance the efficiency of its customers’ plants.

Operating from bases in Sydney and Perth, the Service Centre has been structured to provide vital skills at a time of unprecedented demand for them, says the Centre’s Manager, Jason King. With a core establishment of two dozen staff, supported by expertise from Outokumpu’s operations in both Australia and worldwide, the Centre is focused on key service areas including preventative maintenance, upgrades, spare parts management and excellence in training and safety.

The latest step in Outokumpu Technology’s multi-million dollar investment in its Service Centre came with the recent opening of a new Service Facility in Kewdale, Perth. This is equipped to inspect and overhaul equipment, perform tests on behalf of customers, complete pre-assembly work and consolidate spares deliveries for West Australian customers.

With many companies urgently seeking to outsource roles previously managed on site, Outokumpu Technology presents a wealth of experience and expertise in areas such as comminution, flotation, thickening, analysers, automation and physical separation.

The Centre’s field and process engineers in Sydney and Perth are available for troubleshooting, inspection, breakdown assistance, regular preventative maintenance, calibration and other vital ongoing tasks. All Outokumpu's site supervisors undergo workplace health and safety officer training, ensuring appropriate OH&S qualification to handle supervision of site shutdowns.

The Australian Service Centre can be contacted in Sydney at (02) 9984 2500 or Perth at (08) 9211 2200.
