Today, Wastech is as large as it has ever been, boasting over 100 employees across engineering, manufacturing, design, sales, office and service staff. Offering over 12 product segments, a dedicated service and support department and the ability to design, develop and deliver just about any custom Waste and Recycling product or solution Australia wide and internationally, Wastech’s ability to ‘solve the customer’s problem’ is as strong as ever.
Another huge milestone reached in Wastech’s long line of achievements is the introduction of a completely new and dedicated repair/service centre. The repair centre is based just around the corner from the Wedgewood road head office and exists to provide 24/7 service and support to just about all Waste and Recycling products Australia wide!
With more resources and increased ability to supply custom solutions, Wastech was able to introduce an entirely new division named Major Projects. The introduction of the Major Projects team saw the largest Material Recovery Facility (MRF) designed, manufactured, and installed in Wastech’s history; the Perth Waste MRF; designed to process an astounding 30 tonnes of Kerbside comingled recyclables per hour.
As the product range continued to grow, the number of employees also followed which forced Wastech to look for an even larger space. This saw Wastech move all operations to a completely new facility, offering increased office and factory space, which has been called home to this very day; 33 Wedgewood Road, Hallam.
With ‘solving customers problems’ still a core focus, Wastech took the opportunity to partner up with one of Europes best Baler manufacturers, Bramidan, allowing yet another product to be added to its offering; Bramidan Balers range.
Continuing to add to the product portfolio, Wastech introduces residential Garbage Chutes to the product offering. This included the design and development of Wastech’s popular Ecopac compactor along with steel waste chutes, paving the way to later introduce Australia’s first plastic chutes, the Wastech Smoothtubes. The first field service vehicle was also introduced this year.
Wastech grew to now design, manufacture and install Transfer stations and Trailers.
The next stage of Wastech’s growth would see a move into manufacturing. By the end of 1997, Wastech had grown to 45 employees and had accomplished design, manufacturing and delivery of seven commercial waste compactors and over two-hundred front lift bins. To facilitate the growth of both its resources as well as product offerings, Wastech also moved into 21B Capital Drive.
Having out-grown Redgum Drive by the first year, Neil and Paul made the decision to move to a larger facility, as they required more space. Wastech’s new home for the next three years would be based at 21A Capital Drive, Dandenong South.
Focused on ‘solving customer’s problems’, Wastech first opened in 1993 at 11 Redgum Drive, Dandenong South, and started out offering bins and skips as well as truck repairs and servicing. Wastech grew from 4 to 12 employees within one year.
