New Studco National Operations Centre

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Studco Building Systems is pleased to announce the expansion and relocation of operations to our new National Operations Centre in Croydon South, Victoria, to facilitate our strategic growth and improve operational efficiencies.

The new National Operations Centre is in the Merrindale Industrial Park at 130-140 Merrindale Drive, Croydon South, Victoria and has been purpose-built to facilitate high volume rollforming operations. "Over the last decade, Studco has continued to grow in line with our projected strategic objectives", Ben Stevens, Managing Director of Studco Australia, commented this week. "This sustained growth over a long, challenging period in Australia's economic history presents a strong case for expanding our operational capacity and creating a world-class manufacturing and distribution centre."

 

Centrally situated in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Studco's new National Operations Centre is conveniently located 32km from the Melbourne CBD and only minutes from Melbourne's Eastlink motorway. All facilities currently located at Studco's two Lilydale plants are being relocated.

Relocation of a manufacturing facility this large is no small task, so it is being implemented through a staged rollout, with movement of machinery already well underway. From Monday 23 June, all distribution will move permanently to the new address. Office staff will move to the new National Operations Centre in early July, completing the relocation.

 

Some of the exciting aspects of Studco's new premises are:

  • Undercover loading and unloading for all transport, including multiple outwards goods lanes for faster throughput.
  • Brand new precision rollformers being commissioned for new wall systems (to be released late 2014) and to provide increased capacity of existing products. 
  • Purpose-built training and testing facility to complement our product innovation and extensive R&D activities.
  • Industry-leading health and safety provisions, making Studco a safe and enjoyable place to work at every level.
  • Latest IT infrastructure to support the activity-based work environment, including live video conferencing for seamless communication with our international partners.

When asked what drives Studco's growth, Ben Stevens answers: "Our leading innovation in building systems has seen unprecedented demand from local markets and we are now also exporting globally in record volumes. Our new National Operations Centre allows for expansion of our manufacturing operations by nearly three times to cope with our projected long-term needs."
