Increased in-house efficiency, safety and productivity
Based in Western Sydney NSW, Mulgoa Quarries Pty Ltd carry out civil engineering, contaminated site remediation, bulk earthworks and haulage, disposal and contract quarrying.
Far from being “just earthmoving equipment”, Mulgoa Quarries’ fleet of heavy vehicles represents a substantial investment in the latest technology. Their growing modern fleet includes dozers, scrapers, dump trucks, excavators, loaders, compactors, graders and over 20 truck and dog trailers, all serviced and maintained in-house.
Mulgoa Quarries saw the need for a sophisticated new workshop to replace their old workshop with its outdated hoists and machinery. They turned to Levanta for a new workshop fitout that would improve efficiency and safety for their fleet.
Levanta’s workshop design service helps smooth the path
Mulgoa Quarries’ new workshop is housed in a brand new building constructed by FDC Building.
Scott Richardson, Project Manager at FDC, said, “I think Levanta did a great job and Mulgoa Quarries seem to be very happy with their equipment!”
Scott said Levanta’s design services and their detailed drawings made his job as builder much easier.
New workshop equipment offers increased capability
To service their trucks and dog trailers simultaneously, Mulgoa Quarries opted for dual 25 tonne capacity knuckle lifts. This arrangement meant they don’t need to unhitch the trailers prior to maintenance, resulting in much improved efficiency.
The knuckle lifts are recessed into the workshop floor when not in use, popping up when needed. This setup provides increased useable area in the workshop when the hoists aren’t in use.
Levanta installed a BM Autoteknik roller brake tester and play detectors, allowing Mulgoa Quarries to bring this important safety function in-house. Again, this setup offers increased efficiency and time savings compared to their previous practice of sending their fleet out to ensure compliance.
In-house brake testing allows Mulgoa Quarries to proactively ensure high standards, and pick up potential component failure before it occurs.
A waste oil disposal system was installed for better productivity, and the new workshop fitout was completed with a wash bay facility that allows the team to pressure wash equipment from both sides after maintenance. This helps to maintain the Mulgoa Quarries brand presentation on their vehicles.
