Holcim announces their plans to construct the new precast concrete manufacturing facility at Swanbank Enterprise Park, which is located in Ipswich, South East Queensland.

The new facility allows Humes, a division of Holcim, to supply pipe and precast concrete products to customers throughout the South East Queensland region. It will be located 35km from the Brisbane CBD and only 10km from the Ipswich CBD.

The new manufacturing facility will also focus on increasing safety work practices, reduce waste and as well as increasing production efficiencies. Humes adopts the world’s best manufacturing practices across their range of products.

Holcim plans to start constructing the precast concrete manufacturing facility in 2012 with operations beginning in mid-2013.
