The Kotzur Group, an Australian manufacturer of bulk solid storage and handling equipment, has opened a new facility in Charlton, just outside of Toowoomba in northern Australia.

The building, which was constructed in 36½ weeks, includes modern open-plan office spaces and 4,300 square meters of factory space, including a section of shed with a roof height of 24m, set on approximately five hectares. The company will be building bulk feed storage materials for farmers and agribusinesses across much of rural Australia.

This custom designed facility will allow the business to increase manufacturing of robust material handling equipment while improving accessibility and affordability of its reliable and durable products to northern NSW and Queensland customers.  

In addition, for the first time ever transportable silos will also be manufactured in Toowoomba via this new facility.

Kotzur can also incorporate advancements in aeration and handling capacity to keep farmers harvesting in challenging conditions and ensure the longevity of stored products.

Chief Technical Officer Ben Kotzur said Toowoomba is the ideal location to expand the business and increase manufacturing capacity for customers located in northern Australia.

“The new facility will allow us to continue growth and expansion of our handling equipment capacity and range, and now we will be able to make transportable silos here in Queensland, making them much more affordable for our customers," he said. “We are eager to start using some of the new equipment that has been installed."
