Natural Progression into the Beverage Handling Sector

An Australian materials handling specialist and turnkey logistics solutions provider has expanded its targets in key beverage sectors including the dairy industry, soft drinks manufacture and handling, confectionery, wine and beer, spirits, and any others that require design and implementation to suit specific needs.

Industrial Conveying (Aust) Pty Ltd has given it three main capabilities that favour the domestic market:

  • a huge range of off-the-shelf products and customisation capability
  • a series of strategic acquisitions and amalgamations
  • and an Australia-based engineering centre delivering world class solutions

Managing Director, Mr Don Erskine, says the bold move by ICA into the beverage industry is a natural progression. “For some time now, we have been able to grow not just because of our high-technologies but also because of a strong domestic presence and ability to deal directly with clients. Industrial Conveying is structured to give the beverage industry turnkey solutions for just about all it materials handling needs.

“From handling the empty container at the start of the line through to assembling a truck load, then automatically loading to truck without the use of forklifts.Not only is interest strong in Australia, the export market has seen what we can do and we are gaining momentum through enquiries from around the world."

The company’s project turnkey capability has continued to develop with the establishment of an engineering design and development office in Melbourne, from where some of Australia’s best CAD and CAE engineers engage their expertise. The combination of this facility with the Bendigo design and project Engineering Group has placed ICA in a position where almost any product can be engineered as purpose specific and integrated into an overall materials handling system with any of the company’s standard food and beverage handling products.

Standard technologies typically include knife edge conveyors, 90°/180° modular belting type conveyors, plastic modular belt type conveyors, and slat band conveyors. ICA also designs, programs, installs and commissions the control systems and automation for these material handling projects.

“Just as the mining and quarrying sectors are benefiting by our presence, the beverage industry now has a one-stop shop for world-class materials handling system supply,” said Mr Erskine. “Not only do we have the range of products, we handle projects one-on-one with the client.

“There is now no need for any third-party engineering group to become involved, thus keeping the cost down and eliminating that extra step which always holds the potential to cause a communications gap.”
