The Victoria-based national distribution centre of food manufacturer Heinz is to be expanded by owner SCT Group.
The Heinz Altona Distribution Centre will be expanded to 45,700m2 of warehouse space, and receive upgrades to energy-efficient LED lighting, new rapid doors, additional recessed loading docks and bird-netting to the 3,400m2 of existing canopies.
“Our national DC has been at SCT’s Altona intermodal facility now for over 15 years,” said David Moyle, Heinz’ logistics boss. “We’re looking forward to benefiting from the new rail services to Brisbane and direct rail port shuttles in the future.”
The expansion is set to be completed in October 2018, reportedly making the facility one of the largest warehouses in Melbourne’s western suburbs.
