ATW Group was awarded the contract to construct the new state-of-the-art precast concrete manufacturing facility at Swanbank Enterprise Park, Ipswich, South East Queensland.

The 14 Ha greenfield development, 35 km from the Brisbane CBD and 10km from the Ipswich CBD, will strategically locate Humes to supply pipe and precast concrete products to the South East Queensland region for many years.

The new manufacturing facility will increase the safety of work practices, reduce waste and increase production efficiencies for a more sustainable manufacturing business. World best manufacturing practices will be employed, across the complete range of products the market expects from Humes.

Humes are expecting the facility to be fully operational late 2013.
