Everhard Industries recently commissioned a new 320 tonne injection moulding machine at their plastics manufacturing division. A 1200 tonne machine is also due in May. Both machines will support the production of Everhard’s popular Australian made residential and commercial drainage systems.
Products manufactured on this machine are produced using 100% recycled polymer with a UV stabiliser protecting them against degradation from exposure to UV rays, which extends their lifespan. At the end of the product life, the material can then be recycled back into the economy instead of going into landfills. Creating sustainable products that are designed for Australian homes and conditions and solve complex water issues is at the core of Everhard’s operations.
Constantly striving to improve the processes across their plastics and precast manufacturing divisions, Everhard will utilise the efficiency of the new machines to reduce the environmental impact of production and enhance employee and product safety.
Acquiring the new machinery supports the Boyce Davis family, independent directors and Everhard’s leadership team’s commitment to grow, contribute strongly to the Australian manufacturing industry and support jobs in the community.
“Being able to invest like this for our future, especially after the events of 2020, is a true reflection of the effort the whole team has put into the business and the owners’ passion for Australian manufacturing and Everhard’s future. We are all keen to get these machines going and continue down this path of growth,” Moira Harris, Everhard’s CEO explained.
Established in 1926, Everhard Industries is an Australian family-owned manufacturer of drainage, wastewater and environmental water management solutions for residential and commercial applications.
