Bonfiglioli’s new Victoria premises signals further investment in local stockholding and production

23 March 2023 signalled new investment into Bonfiglioli Australia with the opening of our new regional office in Cranbourne West, Victoria. The special event saw key customers, local staff, and company leaders from Bonfiglioli’s head office in Italy all in attendance.

Welcome to our new premises in Victoria!

Our new premises in Cranbourne West, Victoria is fitted with 40kW of solar power and covers an expansive 1,800 m2, of which warehousing and production makes up 1,400 m2.

The new premises will facilitate the local assembly of all light and medium-duty products, freeing the Sydney factory up to concentrate on heavy-duty products. “This allows us to expand our stock holding locally and to better serve our customers across the local regions,” comments Martin Broglia, Managing Director for Bonfiglioli Australia.

Closer to our customers

Martin explains that this strategic move brings us closer to our customers and is largely underpinned by the need to continue decentralising our assembly facilities, following significant growth over the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We continue our upward trajectory and are hyper-focused on offering local assembly and support around the country. Our investment in product innovation and customer relations is what truly sets us apart.”

Products in production

The new facility will produce:

  • Bonfiglioli’s helical and bevel-helical series of CAFS motors (up to size 60).
  • The full range of VF/W universal wormgears.
  • Bonfiglioli’s 300 planetary gearbox series (up to size 310).

Martin continues: “There are further plans to expand our capabilities and to enable the production of larger motors. The expansion of an aftersales and repair facility is also in the pipeline, as well as a pilot assembly plant for the recently launched CP helical in-line gearbox series.”

“Looking ahead, we anticipate sustained growth - particularly as customers seek out power transmission solutions that meet global energy efficiency standards, while delivering reliable performance. The growth of the renewable energy industry is also set to be a significant driver of expansion, and we are excited about the contributions Bonfiglioli will make to this sector – and many others – over the next decade,” he concludes.
