Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics acquires SRO Group vehicle manufacturing division
The additional services include design, manufacture and installation of customised solutions for utility vehicles and mining and construction equipment. Customised solutions can be for service bodies, truck trays, toolboxes and safety equipment.
In supporting the industrial sector, designs that focus on safety are key drivers. Many products delivered by SRO Manufacturing are deployed on mine sites.
WWL’s national presence allows customers the opportunity to have access to these specialised services in local markets. Together with the company’s existing offering of equipment processing and accessorising services, the acquisition of SRO Manufacturing will extend WWL’s offering of factory to dealer solutions for customers, cutting lead times and cost.
“WWL are excited about the new specialised services we can offer. It will allow us to explore new and innovative ideas to provide our customers greater value in Australia” says Rob Lord, Regional Director for Oceania.
The current SRO Manufacturing site based in Newcastle, Australia, will become WWL’s specialised centre for customised solutions and advanced accessorising services in Oceania.
