2018 was a huge year for Mulley Engineering with installs and upgrades taking the team from Tamworth to Newcastle and then to Western Sydney. From there it was time to head south to Dandenong and Campbellfield in Victoria. This trend continued right up till Christmas and we have an ongoing installation at Eastern Creek.
There was also the responsibility of the after sales commitments. Servicing and repairs are obviously a major priority and requires careful planning. To keep down time to a minimum careful strategy must implemented. Mulley Engineering are careful to organize such requirements in a way that production and work flow remain uninterrupted.
New Picking System at Huntingwood
The job itself, will carry us through until March of this year. It’s been a challenging task but with all the expertise and commitment at our disposal it will be successfully completed inside the required time frame. There’s also upgrades required to the Allied Expressfacilities in Melbourne and Brisbane.
It’s Great to be Part of the Longreach Conveyor Team.
Being the sole New South Wales agent for Longreach makes up a big part of the work we do. It has been and still is, a very successful association between the two companies. An association that we feel both proud and privileged to be a part of. Australia Post, StarTrack, Direct Freightand other major freight companies use Longreach components and technology. This not only keeps our staff busy but also allows them to see a lot of the country.
We’re also proud of our long association with Direct Freight. This year will see an upgrade to their Adelaide facility in the shape of a state of the art sortation system. Outside of installations and upgrades there is also the important after sales components. Servicing and maintenance is of paramount importance, as are the quick responses that must be given to a breakdown situation.
And so the Trend Continues
It’s always good when a business thrives and for Mulley Engineering the success enjoyed last year is still with us. But with that said, Mulley Engineering like any other company has standards to maintain. The crew at Mulley Engineering look forward to and are currently relishing the challenges that await them in 2019.
2018 has been a busy year for Mulley Engineering thus far. Kicking off with an upgrade at Startrack’s Tamworth terminal. One of the key components in parcel freight and 3PL operations is the carousel and Mulley Engineering were called in to replace the existing unit. This upgrade just happened to coincide with the Tamworth Music Festival so Greg and his team were fortunate enough to finish the job and catch the second day of the show.
A Shoe Sorter Installation At Newcastle
Shoe sorters are essential for efficient, handling and distribution. They have proven to be invaluable where there is a wide variety of product sizes, shapes and weights to be sorted. Such requirements took Mulley Engineering from Tamworth to an installation in Newcastle. Direct Freight Express required a depot upgrade to include a shoe sorter system which is unique in rural areas. The install would require a view visits but did go to plan and was finished as scheduled.
Dandenong Expands It’s Loading Area
After the Newcastle installation, Direct Freight Express again called on Mulley Engineering to upgrade their Dandenong operation. One crucial ingredient in achieving good customer service is the loading and then unloading of PUD vehicles. It must be quick, it must be efficient and it must be safe. This facility called for an extension to their system, which resulted not only in the faster unloading of PUD trucks but a smoother operation all round.
Double Carousel For Wetherill Park
As businesses expand and get bigger, so does the load on their facilities. With this in mind, it was back to Wetherill Park in NSW for Mulley Engineering. The client being Border Express and the request was to expand their existing carousel by doubling its length. Border Express wanted to split their operation and the upgrade would improve efficiency across the board.
Campbellfield Expands With A New Shoe Sorter Install
Competition in the parcel freight and 3PL industries is both consistent and relentless. So Direct Freight Express in Campbellfield Victoria called on Mulley Engineering to install a new shoe sorter. The customer’s goal is to help expand not only their interstate operations but also their rural Victorian locations. For Greg and his team, it’s their biggest installation of the year and it will vastly improve the customer’s operation in efficiency and productivity.
In Summing Up!
As you can see, it’s not only been a busy year for Mulley Engineering but also one well travelled. For Greg and his employees, it’s been an opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of the metropolitan areas and to experience life in rural towns. It’s also been very satisfying to bring upgrades to the warehousing, 3PL and parcel freight industries in these areas and to witness their expansion.
