Fenner Conveyors Breaks Ground on K-Mix Project
Fenner Conveyors, leading manufacturer of conveyor belts and rubber compound products, has announced the start of construction for the ‘K-Mix’ Project at its Kwinana facility in Western Australia.
The K-Mix Project is an expansion at the same site as its steel cord conveyor belt factory and will house a new rubber mixing plant. The project is expected to create over 40 local jobs, boost the company’s manufacturing capability, streamline its supply chains, and support its goal of decarbonising manufacturing.
The K-Mix Project is part of Fenner Conveyors’ all-sustainable vision as part of the Michelin Group, which aims to reduce environmental impact and enhance social responsibility. The company has committed to using renewable energy sources, recycling materials, and minimising waste in its operations.
General Manager of Manufacturing, Hong Koh, said “The K-Mix Project is not just a project; it is a commitment to our employees, our customers and stakeholders, and the planet."
"It embodies what we stand for as a business — innovation, sustainability, and the relentless pursuit of excellence.”
Construction of the rubber mixing plant is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.
