A TRADITIONAL smoking ceremony and didgeridoo music ushered in guests attending the opening of LOSCAM’s new pallet repair facility at Richlands, Brisbane.
Coinciding with the 75th anniversary of the founding of the company, the event attracted more than 120 dignitaries, customers, suppliers, executive team members and others from the Australia and New Zealand team.
According to a company statement, the new facility should allow for expansion of repair and storage capacity, seen as critical in ensuring LOSCAM’s ongoing ability to build its local customer base and meet expectations regarding quality and product diversity.
LOSCAM executive vice president for LOSCAM Australia and New Zealand, Daniel Bunnett, thanked his team for their contribution in developing the site.
He also noted the support of parent company China Merchants Group.
“There is an enormous amount of work which goes into driving a Greenfield site development,” Mr Bunnett said.
“The effort from the local team in driving the market share gain and then leading this development has been first rate. I would also like to acknowledge our parent company in China Merchants Group who continue to invest in the long term strategic future for the region.”
LOSCAM executive vice president of finance, Linda Tsui, delivered a speech on behalf of Mr Zhao Huxiang, the LOSCAM chairman.
“This new Richlands facility is further strong evidence of China Merchants ongoing support to LOSCAM,” Ms Tsui said.
LOSCAM president, Sirin Limpaitoon, made a speech, noting an “underlying promise to our customers that we are at your call, ready to support, and drive solutions”.
Federal Member for Oxley, Milton Dick, congratulated the LOSCAM team and wished them ongoing success.
