Tuesday, 28 January, 2014

Fibre King has opened a new factory in Thailand under the name of its export brand, Oryx Automation. The new 3000 m2 Rayong Province facility, in combination with an existing 2400 m2 Brisbane facility and doubling of staff numbers, is expected to significantly increase the company’s capacity in the growing export market.

Fibre King Australia’s head office and factory in Brisbane will remain the research and development centre for the company.

“The level of interest coming out of Asia and the Middle East, as well as the USA and Canada, has been overwhelming,” said Earle Roberts, CEO of the RL Windsor Group, an 87-year-old Australian engineering company which has been manufacturing packaging machinery for 50 years.

“Our manufacturing capability in Asia is now tested and proven, with recent successful installations at several Asian nutritional operations, so we’re well placed to meet our global clients’ needs.

“Our home-based market continues to be strong and remains under the care of the existing Fibre King team, devoted as ever to our ‘No Excuses Service’ mandate.”
