Mackay Automotive – Chisholm Tafe – Tour

Chisolm visit at Mackay

Derwent Industries was very honored to welcome members of Chisholm Tafe – Automotive to the Mackay plant on Friday 19th of April. 13 members of the Chisholm Automotive faculty attended the Mackay Plant Tour in Dandenong South to learn more about the manufacture of Automotive components here in Australia.
The tour began with a short introduction and explanation about the Derwent group and our 5 Australian manufacturing facilities, followed by a tour of the Mackay facility. This tour included the NATA lab and explanation of the testing we conduct on the rubber produced, the mixing area and compression and injection molding lines. The group was then shown in more depth the manufacturing area for hoses, including the use of Autoclaves.
At Derwent we believe that manufacturing in Australia is a vital part of our future, being able to share this with members of Chisholm Tafe was indeed an honor.
Thank you to the members of Chisholm who attaended the tour and we look forward to a strong relationship with Chisholm and the Automotive students in the future.
